Sappho

Aired -

1h 17m
Sappho is no ordinary poet, and this is no ordinary Moving Mythology. 

Less myth and more legend, this practice explores the lyric poetry of the woman Plato dubbed "The Tenth Muse." She graced us the words "sapphic" and "lesbian" (from the island of Lesbos, where she lived), so in celebration of Pride Month, Kathryn will share one of the substantial surviving fragments of Sappho's work: Fragment 31, in which she describes her love for a young woman. Class will then be built around her beautiful words and the enduring sapphic legacy.
