Episode 27c: Sappho: The Translations (reprised)

October 20, 2018

Sappho: The Translations (reprised)

The Lesbian Historic Motif Podcast - Episode 27c

Due to scheduling issues, I’m reprising a pair of shows I aired two years ago about Sappho and her poetry. I hope you enjoy either revisiting this material or discovering it for the first time.

In this episode we talk about

  • How much poetry did Sappho write, and how much survives? Why was it lost, and why were the bits we have preserved?
  • What was the changing image of Sappho from the middle ages through the 19th century? How did people reconcile their admiration for Sappho’s poetry and their disapproval of homosexuality?
  • Who translated Sappho’s works and how did their opinions of her affect those translations?

The show will include recitations of the following poems:

  • Ode to Aphrodite & Fragment #31: Jane McIntosh Snyder from Lesbian Desire in the Lyrics of Sappho (20th century)
  • “On a Lady Named Beloved” inspired by fragment #31: Anne de Rohan (1617), translated from the French
  • Fragment #31: John Hall (1652)
  • Fragment #31: Joseph Addison (1735)
  • Ode to Aphrodite & Fragment #31: Abrose Philips (1748)
  • “Eleanore” inspired by Fragment #31: Lord Tennyson (1832)
  • Fragment #31 & “Imitation of Sappho” inspired by Fragment #31: Mary Hewitt (1845)
