Detailní popis produktu

Sappho's poetry has remained incredibly popular for over 2,600 years, a true testament to its universal appeal. Despite only having fragments and a few complete poems remaining, the allure of her work continues to captivate each new generation, sparking fresh efforts to convey the essence of her Greek words accurately in English.

Previous translations of Sappho have typically taken different approaches, either sticking strictly to the literal translation of fragments or taking creative liberties to fill in the missing pieces. In this edition, Willis Barnstone strikes a balance, staying true to the original words while subtly adding clarity where needed. The book also includes detailed notes, a section of ancient writers' praises of Sappho, a glossary of mentioned figures, and recommendations for further reading. Get ready to dive into Sappho's world and uncover the beauty of her poetry like never before.
