In ancient times, Sappho was widely regarded as one of the greatest lyric poets and was given names such as the “Tenth Muse” and “The Poetess”.Beyond her poetry, she is well known as a symbol of love and desire between women,with the English words sapphic and lesbian being derived from her own name and the name of her home island respectively.
