(c.600 BCE)
Immensely famous in the ancient world, Sappho was a lyric poet loved throughout the ages for the beauty of her writing. Her poems were collected into nine volumes in ancient libraries, but today only one complete poem survives. Then we have one sixteen-line fragment and the rest are bits, known mostly from later writers who quoted her work. In spite of this tragic loss, the intensity and power of her poetry can still be felt. Fragment 31 V
He seems to me to be like the gods
whatever man sits opposite you
and close by hears you
talking sweetly And laughing charmingly, which
makes the heart within my breast take flight;

Wu Tsao
19th Century
Wu Tsao was born sometime around 1800; her year of birth and death are uncertain. She was the daughter of a merchant and married a merchant herself. Her experiences with these men were not positive and she sought out the company of women, as friends and as lovers. She wrote erotic poems to courtesans, creating unashamed lyric passages full of the sweetness of yearning. She was China's great lesbian poet, and she was popular while she lived, her songs sung throughout China. Her poetry dealt with a variety of topics, unlike other women poets of her time. This versatility, combined with casual style and personal tone, probably contributed to her popularity. Later in life, Wu Tsao moved to seclusion and became a Taoist priestess. tz'u poets of the Ching (Manchu) Dynasty. Given the quality of Wu Tsao's work and her history, it is disturbing to find that her name rarely appears in Western profiles of poets, and she is not included in literary discussions of the lesbian poetic tradition.

Sappho and Her Wedding Songs
Some say there are nine Muses: how careless!

Largely because of the absence of biographical accounts from other ancient writers, what is known about Sappho now and to the ancients has mainly been extrapolated from her poetry or from stereotypes of women poets in general and of the women of Lesbos specifically. One must always be wary of relying solely on what someone says in her poetry as representing her true feelings, but in the absence of other sources, this study must rely on Sappho's poetry to disclose her attitude towards marriage. Sappho (her name was probably pronounced Psappho) was born around 612 B.C. in the town of Mytilene on the island of Lesbos, as was Alcaeus, a contemporary lyric poet who showed a deep respect for Sappho in his poetry. Most likely she was from an aristocratic family; her parents' names are thought to be Skamandronymos and Kleis. She had three brothers: Erigyois, about whom nothing is known; Charaxos, who had business connections and a lover in Egypt; and Larichos, who was involved in government service in Mytilene. Her husband, whom some scholars believe is fictional since he is not mentioned in any of her poetry, was most likely Kerkylas of Andros. Her daughter, who is mentioned in three fragments, is called Kleis, after her maternal grandmother. During the unrest on Lesbos, Sappho sought refuge in Sicily. There is a legend that Sappho leapt to her death from the White Rock of Leukas when Phaon rejected her as a lover.

Anna Seward
Anna Seward was a poet and a prolific correspondent of the late eighteenth century. She was the daughter of Thomas Seward, the canon of Lichfield, and Elizabeth Hunter. Elizabeth died and left Thomas a widoweran event that left Anna without a mother but with the freedom not to marry. As the eldest daughter, it was her responsibility to care for her father, and so she stayed at Lichfield and tended to him through senility. When he died, she was in her forties, and no longer under any social obligation to marry. As she was quite outspoken in her opinions of marriage (openly criticizing popular guidebooks for women that purported any marriage as preferable to none) the inability to marry young does not seem to have been a problem for her. Anna was well-educated, known for her lively, generous nature and her unconventional ideas. She was educated at home, and read French, Italian, and Latin. Lichfield was one of the major provincial literary centers of the 18th century, and hers was a literary household. She began writing poetry young, publishing in periodicals and circulating her poems among friends. Her style of verse was more conventional than her ideas, tending toward the enthusiastic and sentimental. She wrote many poems commemorating events and celebrating special places, and she is best known for these, as well as for her elegies. But another important topic to her was love, passionately expressed but always cast as friendship, and often directed toward Honora Sneyd.

89. Sappho And Catullus
This website is about the customs of ancient weddings, both Greek and Latin, as described in the poetry of sappho and Catullus. sappho and Catullus.

Sappho and Catullus
Arbores facito uti bene martiae sint vitesque uti satis multae adserantur et, sic ubi opus erit, de arbore deiciantur, uti in terram deprimantur, et biennio post praecidito veteres.
See that the trees are well wedded, and that a sufficient number of vines are planted for them; and wherever it is necessary let these be detached from the trees and buried in the ground, and two years later cut them off from the old stock.
T hat Catullus was influenced by Sappho is obvious. He named his lover, for instance, after Sappho's home. He translated, with little alteration, at least one of Sappho's poems into Latin. And yet there are significant differences between the two poets.
Why, however, did Catullus write epithalamia? Very probably, they were not necessary and maybe even out-dated by his time. Wiseman explains:
epithalamium was long obsolete. We don't know whether it was he or Calvus or Ticidas who first made it fashionable again, but Catullus' admiration for Sappho, with whom the genre was particularly associated, makes it more likely than not that he was the innovator.
That Catullus was influenced by Sappho is clear and that they both wrote epithalamia is striking. Most likely, these two facts combined, resulting in Carmina 61 and 62.

Fragments of Sappho's Poetry
She was a Lesbian Let's say at the start that the least interesting thing about Sappho (or Psappho as she preferred to be known) was the one that preoccupied later Greeks, Romans and most of those today who couldn't read a line of her poetry, and for whom she exists merely a brand. Let it suffice that she was a Lesbian because she came from Lesbos, and that "sapphic" was one of her innovatory metres. Broken pieces Two complete poems survive out of nine books. Of the rest only fragments exist - broken sherds of poems as tantalising as pieces of broken pottery. And, like a fragment of a vase (which is physically indestructible), her fragments are strong, with that "fresh as the day they were made" appeal. (Remember the Greek word we translate as poet means simply "maker".) Curiously enough, one of her longer fragments is actually preserved on a pocket-sized piece of broken pottery: an Egyptian fan had copied it out, presumably to carry around with him/her. More than most poetry, the fragments are untranslatable. I give you the Greek (without going into scholarly dispute about emendations), and enough information for those (greekless or not) who wish to process the information. If you click on the ear, you can hear an approximation to the original sound - might take a while if you have a slow connection.

Marie-Madeleine (aka Baronness Von Puttkamer)
Note: Biographical material on Marie-Madeleine was most graciously provided to me by one of Marie Madeleine's grandsons. He cautions that, at this time, some of this information is anecdotal. Marie Madeleine Gunther was born on April 4, 1881 in Eydtkuhnen (then East Prussia, today Russian) to Karl Gunther, a merchant, and Emmy Siemssen. On August 2, 1900, at age nineteen, Marie Madeleine married General Heinrich Georg Ludwig Freiherr (Baron) von Puttkamer. He was 35 years her senior. Three years later she gave birth to her only child, Jesco Gunther Heinrich. They lived in Grunewald, a top-grade suburb of Berlin. In her time, under the name of Marie Madeleine, she established a name for herself as a writer of unusually lyrical, stunningly sensual, shockingly erotic and hotly passionate poetry and prose (she wrote short stories and novellas). She published individual poems in journals (such as "Champagne frappe" in Das Narrenschiff [Ship of Fools]). In 1900, she published her first collection

Edna St. Vincent Millay
Edna St. Vincent Millay, twentieth-century poet and playwright, was best known for her lyrical poetry. She wrote many poems in traditional sonnet form, on topics such as love, fidelity, erotic desire, and feminist issues. What isn't as widely publicized is that she also acknowledged herself as bisexual and had many affairs with women before her marriage. It's not clear if she continued sexual involvements with women after marriage (though it is quite possible), nor is it clear which of her poems are written about women rather than men. She grew up in a different sort of familypast the age of seven, her father wasn't present, as her mother (Cora) asked him to leave. Cora was a nurse who encouraged Millay (called Vincent by her close friends) and her sisters in musical and literary pursuits. Millay was brought up to be self-sufficient and was taught that ambition was good, an upbringing reflected in her accomplishments of later years. At her mother's encouragement, Millay entered her poem "Renascence" into a poetry contest and won fourth placed. When the poem was published, she gained literary recognition and earned a scholarship to Vassar. At Vassar, she continued to write poetry and became involved in theater. In 1922 one of her plays

In explanation for their remarkable gift, it was said that when Orpheus was torn to pieces by the Thracian women, his head and lyre were carried to and buried on Lesbos. Lyric poetry was personal and evocative, allowing the reader to identify with the poet's private despair and hopes. It's for this reason that Sappho, even 2600 years later, can arouse our emotions.

Amy Lowell
Amy Lowell ( 27k JPG image ), American Imagist poet, was a woman of great accomplishment. She was born in Brookline, Massachusetts, to a prominent family of high-achievers. Her environment was literary and sophisticated, and when she left private school at 17 to care for her elderly parents, she embarked on a program of self-education. Her poetic career began in 1902 when she saw Eleonora Duse, a famous actress, perform on stage. Overcome with Eleonora's beauty and talent, she wrote her first poem addressed to the actress. They met only a couple times and never developed a relationship, but Eleonora inspired many poems from Amy and triggered her career. Ada Russell, another actress, became the love of Amy's life. She met Ada in 1909 and they remained together until Amy's death in 1925. Amy wrote many, many poems about Ada. In the beginning, as with her previous poems about women, she wrote in such a way that only those who knew the inspiration for a poem would recognize its lesbian content. But as time went on, she censored her work less and less. By the time she wrote Pictures of the Floating World , her poems about Ada were much more blatantly erotic. The series "Planes of Personality: Two Speak Together" chronicles their relationship, including the intensely erotic poem
