Invoking Aphrodite, the Goddess of love

Cnidus Aphrodite Altemps














Dear Sappho,

Who was Aphrodite and how much power did she have in the ancient world? I understand that Sappho invokes Aphrodite in some of her poem fragments. Can you tell me more?

Please Describe the Sapphic Meter

poet sappho


Dear Sappho,

Is there really a poetry meter named after you? Could you please describe that style and explain a little bit about the various terms regarding your poetry form and technique? It seems specific but I can’t put my finger on the precise form. Thank you. I am a lifelong huge fan and admirer of your poetry.

Sincerely, Poetry Lover
