Sappho Sings by Margaret Ullman

Here Psappha, as Sappho called herself in her own soft Aeolian dialect, sings her way from sadness through exile to triumph.
Deliciously written, with descriptive language that transports you wholly into an ancient world, the author's sensuous, often erotic, tale grips and tantalizes with an ever-thickening and twisting plot and an abundance of characters who will remain vivid in your mind.
