In this collection of poetry, Bliss Carman imagines the words of the Greek poet Sappho, whose work has mostly been lost. The book is structured as a series of poems (one hundred), as if written by Sappho, using fragments of her surviving work. Carman seems to do well in capturing her voice and perspective. The result if a lovely, imaginative set of poems, mostly focused on love and the beauty of nature.
