Description : These love songs are, of course, Sufi poems, and a few odds and ends formed out of that same Source of all joy. They follow no formal rhyme or metre, except when they do, and have only the path of love as a common theme.
Description : Falling in love is a complicated, messy, mad endeavour - and staying in love is even worse. All too often our hopes end in heartbreak and our dreams in tatters, but there is a rational alternative to romantic despair. Drawing on her own experience as a psychoanalyst, and the combined wisdom of philosophers, poets, scientists and singers, Anouchka Grose offers some serious solutions to the conundrums of love.
Description : Called the Tenth Muse by the ancients, Greece's greatest female lyric poet Sappho (ca. 610-580 b.c.e.) spent the majority of her life on the famed island of Lesbos. Passionate and breathtaking, Sappho's poems survive only in fragments following religious conspiracies to silence her. Sappho penned immortal verse on the intense power of the female libido; on the themes of romance, love, yearning, heartbreak, and personal relationships with women. This work retains the standard numerical order of the fragments and has been arranged in six sections. Distinguished poet and lecturer Paul Roche's translation of The Love Songs of Sappho is enhanced with his brilliant essay, Portrait of Sappho, as well as a lucid historical introduction by celebrated feminist and classicist Page duBois.
