Now why would I think only modern man could come up with moving poetry? How I would love to be able to read Sappho’s lines in her own language.

Reblogged this on Linear B, Knossos & Mycenae and commented:
THIS is SUPREMELY important to lovers of ancient Greek literature! Sappho is probably the greatest female lyric poet in all of history. I am delighted with this find! Richard
