    She is right, many people know her and think of her, but I doubt that she knew back then how many people that would be. (Report) Reply

    Only recently discovered Sappho, quite by accident, but OMG! Amazing stuff, i write amatuer poems along similar lines, and reading Sappho's works is such an inspiration, her ability to put into such detail... Wow!

    If i could meet one person throughout history, i think it may have to be Sappho!
