"[Sappho's] verse has been elevated to new heights in [this] gorgeous translation." --The New York Times "This Sappho is whispering in our ear in a language we can understand." --Time Out New York "Carson is in many ways [Sappho's] ideal translator. . . . Her command of language is honed to a perfect edge and her approach to the text, respectful yet imaginative, results in verse that lets Sappho shine forth." --Los Angeles Times "A selfless, faithful, and boldly delicate achievement." --Boston Review
