Sappho born 630 B.C. in Lesbo. She was lyric poet. She wrote poetry that was admired by ancient world. Her poetry work was very personal in nature .She talk about herself, family , daughter and lovers. She also introduces ancient Greece to the word by her poetry .But

The theme of her poetry is emotions, love, passion and hatred. Most of her poems is about other woman‘s love. Her writing is not formally literary. There are also many incomplete poems and fragments in her poetry collection. She seem to be very modern in her thoughts, especially when it is about love, she likes to describe every detail about her lovers and sex. I wonder, even in the modern age, we could not find such open minded poet who has modern sense of exclusivity to her sex.

I wonder, even in the modern age, if we can find such an open-minded poet who writes openly about homosexuality.
