My Thoughts

A neat collection containing Greek on the left and English on the right. Anne Carson included everything from full poems to one-word fragments. The fragmented poems were so interesting. You just get a few words here and there and just sort of wonder what the full poem contained. The unfinished poems allow you to imagine your own ending. The whole Sappho experience was quite interesting and there are a few of her poems, sometimes containing just a line or two, that really stick with you.
