Searching for Sappho

I re-read the title book, which is a good use of a range of sources over a span of hundreds of years to get a sense of the average life of a woman like Sappho, fitting it in with the little we know about her own life (including from her poetry). Also, collects her poetry in one place though this amounts to a lot of fragments, sometimes basically one word.
