Being and Reading Sappho: Sapphic Traditions from Antiquity to the Present

Barbara Graziosi and Sherry Lee

Back to "Spring 2023" courses

Who was Sappho? And what do we make of her today? In this course, students will consider in detail what remains of Sappho’s work (including the latest discoveries, published in 2014), and also how her example informs later literatures, arts, identities, and sexualities. Students with no knowledge of ancient Greek and students who already know it well are equally welcome! One session per week will focus on reading and translating original texts with one group, while a parallel session will focus on translations and adaptations through time. One joint session per week will draw perspectives together.
