I would love to meet the Greek poet Sappho. I am absolutely obsessed with her work. In my opinion, the worst Greek Tragedy of them all is that so much of it was lost to history.

I want to know anything and everything that contributed to the development of the amazing poet that we know so little about. I want to know what Sappho's inspiration was for writing. Does she consider herself blessed
