Lesbian Desire in the Lyrics of Sappho (Between Men--Between Women)

Lesbian Desire in the Lyrics of Sappho (Between Men--Between Women) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the first book to examine Sappho's poetry through the lens of lesbian desire. Snyder provides close readings of the surviving examples of Sappho's poetry, occasionally presenting comparative material from other ancient Greek poets. The original Greek text is included in an appendix.

Book News Annotation:

Heavily influenced by the assumptions of New Criticism and the tradition of close textual reading, classical philologist Snyder interprets Sappho's poetry within the framework of homoerotic desire. Examining the one full poem of Sappho and a number of fragments, she also looks at comparative readings of other ancient Greek poets and Sappho's influence on modern American women writers.
