Born circa 630 B.C.

Born at Eressos on the Greek island of Lesbos, Sappho is one of the first and certainly one of the most famous of all female poets. Very few facts are known: She was married and had a daughter. She was exiled to Sicily between 604 and 595 B.C. Only fragments of her poetry remain. She wrote using several different forms including hymns, mythological poems, and personal intimate poems. Many of her poems are addressed to other women and it has been suggested that she may have founded or been a member of a female erotic cult. One reviewer writes of her style: "Famous in ancient times for her depiction of passion, Sappho delights in sensuous images of flowers, the moon, the sea, and the night. Her style is straightforward, delicate, melodious, graceful, and witty." See Richmond Lattimore's Greek Lyrics, 2d Edition
