Greek Sappho at last!

Well! This certainly requires a new post! One of my wonderful readers, who wishes to remain anonymous, just sent me a scan of the Greek from the TLS! It's too big to post as an image here without messing up the format of this blog, so I'll just post a link: Sappho in Greek from the TLS.

All I can say is, even with my broken Greek, this poem sounds beautiful. Sappho was a true artist.

Edit: You may also want to see posts from June 24 (includes link to Martin West article) and June 26 (includes the Greek typed out in Unicode).

I still plan on buying several copies from Borders when it comes in, of course.
