Sappho of Lesbos

(1960)
A novel by

 
 
Sapphos of Lesbos lived for love, as these unashamed memoirs show. It has always been widely believed that Lesbos, basking in the blue Aegean Sea, was an island where lesbianism held full sway - but this is only partly true. Married to a wealthy merchant, the legendary voluptuary found his frequent absences provided just the freedom she desired to satisfy her amorous needs beyond the limited circle of her beautiful handmaids. For though sensuous Sappho certainly knew well how to please a woman, she also knew how to please her men. Her numerous lovers, Phaon and Alexander, Kressim and Alcaeus among many others, were beguiled by her beauty and seduced by her sensual charm.
