Lawrence Durrell was married four times, and Sappho, born in in Oxford, was a daughter of the second marriage. After the birth the family eventually returned to Cyprus, where the mother, Eve Cohen, had a nervous breakdown and asked Lawrence Durrell’s mother to move in to look after Sappho. daughter called Cleis, who is like a golden flower I wouldn't take all Croesus' kingdom with love thrown in, for herDon't ask me what to wear I have no embroidered headband from Sardis to give you, Cleis, such as I wore and my mother always said that in her day a purple ribbon looped in the hair was thought to be high style indeed but we 3/5.

Sappho in the introduction (pg. ) is said to be married and have a daughter. This would lead some readers astray as they would find out the unreturned love to be female, not male. According to the introduction (pg. ) we know very little about same sex relationships and how people viewed them in Greece. Sapphos poems were the inspiration. He specifically disclaims Menander’s version about Sappho’s being the first to take the plunge at Leukas. Instead, he offers a version of “those more versed in the ancient lore,” according to which Kephalos son of Deioneus was the very first to have leapt, impelled by love for Pterelas (Strabo C).

  The papyrus line reads "She [Sappho] had a daughter Cleïs named after her mother." (Duban , ) Two preserved fragments of Sappho's poetry refer to a Cleïs. In Fragm Sappho addresses Cleïs, saying that she has no way of obtaining a decorated headband for her. Book I, poems composed in the Sapphic stanza, stanzas in all. Her mother’s name was Cleis, and Sappho had a daughter of the same name. The husband of the poetess was probably named Cercolas, and there is a faint suspicion that he was a man of property.

Little is known with certainty about the life of Sappho, or Psappha in her native Aeolic dialect. She was born probably about B.C. to an aristocratic family on the island of Lesbos during a great cultural flowering in the area.

Apparently her birthplace was either Eressos or Mytilene, the main city on the island, where she seems to have lived for some time. In Sappho’s household is a beautiful young female slave named Melitta, who was taken into Sappho’s home as a small child. For some years, the girl is very close to her mistress.
