Dubbed the ‘Tenth Muse’ by Plato, Greek lyrical poet Sappho has been immortalised as both an icon and an enigma.
Though history has painted a colourful picture of lesbian affairs and a dramatic suicide, knowledge of The Poetess’s life is as fragmented as her works; just 650 lines of poetry are known to have survived. And yet one thing is for sure – Sappho’s deeply moving lyrics on sex, love and motherhood continue to captivate listeners and cement her as a symbol of feminist and queer culture.
Poet In The City welcomes you back to Wilton’s for a decadent - dissident - evening of music and revelry evoking the spirit of the world’s first female poet.
