Translated from the ancient Greek with an introduction by Willis Barnstone.

This edition reintroduces Sappho to the modern reader, providing a vivid, contemporary translation, which captures the spareness and the intensity of Sappho's line. In this translation, Sappho's work is presented as we have inherited it, in its darkly antiromantic idiom that rejects sentimentality and 'prettiness.'
