(click/touch triangles for details)
Definition
the Greek lyric poet of Lesbos; much admired although only fragments of her poetry have been preserved (6th century BC)
  • Moreover, if you consider any great figure of the past, like Sappho, like the Lady Murasaki, like Emily Brontë, you will find that she is an inheritor as well as an originator, and has come into existence because women have come to have the habit of writing naturally; so that even as a prelude to poetry such activity on your part would be invaluable.
