Cambridge
We have only few dozen verses composed by Sappho of Lesbos more than 26 centuries ago, and yet her life, work, and sexuality have made her one of the most famous authors in history. This talk explores the little we know about her life, then looks at some of the representations, misrepresentations and cultural echoes of Sappho in more recent times, asking what truth, they contain, if any.

Edith Hall is Professor of Classics at King's College, London.

This event is followed by a drinks reception kindly hosted by the Master of Selwyn College, Roger Mosey.
