greek poets Sappho
The Greek Poet Sappho

Sappho was an ancient Greek poet who infused her works with intense emotions - especially love, desire, longing, and their companion, suffering. She crafted her poems primarily as a tribute to the private world of women, something from which we are generally excluded in Greek literature. Therefore the poems provide us with a valuable and remarkable glimpse into the lives and aspirations of Greek girls. In some respects, they could be termed "romantic", but Sappho transcends her subject with such a moving, insightful, and poignant power that the poems are still highly relevant even today. Simply stated, she created some of the most vibrant love poetry ever composed. Naturally, someone as intimately concerned with love as Sappho would be drawn to the irresistible realm of the goddess of love. And indeed, Aphrodite plays a significant role in many of Sappho's poems. It is to this goddess that Sappho addresses several of her works. In some cases, it seems as if the poet were a supplicant, begging Aphrodite for mercy from the ravages of unrequited love; in others, Sappho sings joyfully of the beautiful deity, and the poems are like graceful gifts to this golden goddess:
"Leave Krete and come to this holy temple
where the graceful grove of apple trees
circles an altar smoking with frankincense.

circa 630 B.C.
One of the great Greek lyrists and few known female poets of the ancient world, Sappho was born some time between 630 and 612 BC. She was an aristocrat who married a prosperous merchant, and she had a daughter named Cleis. Her wealth afforded her with the opportunity to live her life as she chose, and she chose to spend it studying the arts on the isle of Lesbos. In the seventh century BC, Lesbos was a cultural center. Sappho spent most her time on the island, though she also traveled widely throughout Greece. She was exiled for a time because of political activities in her family, and she spent this time in Sicily. By this time she was known as a poet, and the residents of Syracuse were so honored by her visit that they erected a statue to her. Sappho was called a lyrist because, as was the custom of the time, she wrote her poems to be performed with the accompaniment of a lyre. Sappho composed her own music and refined the prevailing lyric meter to a point that it is now known as

Sappho's Hymn to Aphrodite
Translation, notes and metrical explanation
Iridescent-throned Aphrodite, deathless
Child of Zeus, wile-weaver, I now implore you,
Don'tI beg you, Ladywith pains and torments
Crush down my spirit,
But before if ever you've heard my pleadings
Then return, as once when you left your father's
Golden house; you yoked to your shining car your
Wing-whirring sparrows;
Skimming down the paths of the sky's bright ether
On they brought you over the earth's black bosom,
Swiftlythen you stood with a sudden brilliance,
Goddess, before me;
Deathless face alight with your smile, you asked me
What I suffered, who was my cause of anguish,
What would ease the pain of my frantic mind, and
Why had I called you
To my side: "And whom should Persuasion summon
Here, to soothe the sting of your passion this time?
Who is now abusing you, Sappho? Who is
Treating you cruelly?
Now she runs away, but she'll soon pursue you;
Gifts she now rejectssoon enough she'll give them;
Now she doesn't love you, but soon her heart will
Burn, though unwilling."

19. Sappho
Translate this page sappho. Die griechische Dichterin sappho wurde vor dem Jahr 600 v. Chr. So gründete auch sappho auf Lesbos ihre Sängerinnen-Schule, die weithin Ruhm erlangte.
Lyrik, der Begriff Metrik, das Versmaß Begriffslexikon Sappho Die griechische Dichterin Sappho wurde vor dem Jahr 600 v. Chr. geboren und lebte vorwiegend auf der Insel Lesbos, wo sie im Kult der Aphrodite und der Musen Freundinnen und Schülerinnen um sich sammelte (Sapphismus). Wie zu dieser Zeit üblich, wurden Mädchen und Frauen unterrichtet und ihre vielversprechenden Talente in Anmut, Grazie, Poesie, Philosophie und Musik gefördert. Edle und gebildete Frauen bemühten sich intensiv um ihre Schülerinnen, die sich gern den erfahreneren Frauen anschlossen. Diese Frauengesellschaften pflegten die Tradition und gaben von Generation zu Generation ihr Wissen weiter. So gründete auch Sappho auf Lesbos ihre Sängerinnen-Schule, die weithin Ruhm erlangte. Der Dichter Alkaios beschreibt Sappho als liebenswürdige, heitere, anmutige und würdevolle Frau, gibt ihr Attribute wie veilchenlockig, hehr und süßlächelnd. Nach der Sage, die nach ihren Gedichttexten entstand, soll sich Sappho aus unerwiderter Liebe zu Phaon vom Leukadischen Felsen gestürzt haben. Dennoch ist es ebenso möglich, wenn nicht wahrscheinlicher, daß es sich bei Sapphos Worten nur um dichterische Erfindungen handelte, die gerade das Sujet der unerwidert Liebenden und Leidenden zum erhöhten Thema werden ließ. So dient auch die Erzählung vom todessehnsüchtigen Felsenssprung als literarisches Mittel, sich von seinen Leiden zu befreien und somit den Wahn und die Berauschtheit der Liebe zu beschreiben und ist nicht als wirkliche historische Tatsache zu interpretieren.

20. Sappho And Lesbian Poetry
A short study of several poems, with text in translation, by William Harris PhD, Prof.em. Middlebury College.
The World of Lesbian Poetry
There is more detailed SAPPHO on this famous poem and some others, with Greek text, transliteration, some art pictures and phonetic analysis pf the "Microstructure" on this website, which may be useful after reading this page.
When we speak of Sappho, the poet from the island of Lesbos, and her poetry, we are thinking of something very special, a transcendental kind of poetry which is somehow purer, fairer, lovelier than anything else in the Western world. Considering how little we know about the poet herself, and how little we have of the remains of her poetry, we might well ask ourselves if we are not participating in a literary myth, creating a poet-figure of such great talent with so little verse, that one can only admire from a vast distance. It is hard to believe that in early Byzantine times whole books of her poetry were there to read, even if the Aeolic special language was largely unintelligible to most readers. But her fame was large and it seems somehow unthinkable that her gems were simply not copies, perhaps even destroyed by orders. Odd books have survived, Lucretius whom no one could really understand in the ninth century, Catullus who could be shocking, and so with the churchly Byzantines too one would expect. I have thought that male homosexuality may have been less threatening to a growing Christian church council than the homosexuality of females, which if developed could hamper childbearing. But this is unknown, no attitudes about same-sex relationships have been so harsh and unrelenting as those of these last two centuries, and it is useless to pry further back on such a personal and secret topic.
