A broken doric column from which emerges the beautiful work of a much maligned and misunderstood poet. She was the first female poet, commanding great respect in Ancient Greece. Parents would send their daughters to her as to a finishing school. It is only recently, in more repressive times, that Sappho's life has been somewhat slandered. Yet her poems (fragments as they are) remain among the most beautiful ever written.
