“I loved thee, Atthis”
I loved thee, Atthis, in the long ago,
The poetry of Sappho, who was born around 620 BC and lived on the Greek island of Lesbos, has inspired and fascinated readers and poets for two and a half thousand years. Today, as in antiquity, she is regarded as Greece’s supreme lyric poet. Yet apart from a few near-complete poems, her poetry survives largely in tantalizing fragments.
