Sappho Complete Works World's Best Collection

This is the world’s best Sappho collection, including the most complete set of Sappho’s works available plus many free bonus materials.


Sappho was a Greek lyric poet, born on the island of Lesbos. The Alexandrians included her in the list of nine lyric poets. Little is known for certain about her life and although the bulk of her poetry, well-known and greatly admired through much of antiquity, has been lost, her immense reputation has endured through surviving fragments.

Sappho’s poetry centers on passion and love of both sexes, as well as lesbianism. The word lesbian is derived from the island of her birth, Lesbos, and her name is the origin of the word sapphic.
