Sappho was universally recognized by the ancients as the greatest lyric poet. Her lines are spare, bare, and subtle, or as Mosas Hadas put it, “it is ordinary language raised to its highest potential.” Alongside the odes to Olympic athletes of Pindar, the wisdom verse of Hesiod, or the epic lays of Homer, Sappho’s highly personal poems sound quite modern to our ears. Only a few fragments of her work has survived the centuries, most of them more than one line in length are in this book. The Supplement Edition coordinates with the student text edition, and includes the same poems (www.createspace.com/4185675). This dialogue-style teaching supplement, the Supplement Edition: Sappho: The Poems is arranged by question and answers. Table of Contents Preface for teachers Who was Sappho? Where did Sappho live?
