Sappho, the Poetess

Sappho, the Poetess:

makingqueerhistory:

“Sappho has been ranked among the greatest poets of all time since there have been rankings of poets and has more than earned her spot. Her work is both prolific and groundbreaking for its time, leading the way for thousands of other poets who came after her. While much of her work was lost in the destruction of the Library of Alexandria, and much of it has been destroyed by religious leaders, the fragments that were recovered are enough for her still to be remembered and admired. Sometimes in spite of her queerness, and other times because of it.”
