An experiment in combining visual art with translations of Sappho, Part 2

2015.11.09 | By Gregory Nagy

On 2015.10.9 Classical Inquiries published the first in a series of experiments combining the artwork of cartoonist, painter, and archaeological illustrator Glynnis Fawkes with my translations of Sappho.  This second installment presents one of the “newest Sappho” fragments known as the “Brothers Song.”1
