Sing, O Muse

This week's Times Literary Supplement includes a new poem by Sappho, greatest of the Greek lyric poets, and more than 2500 years young. Here's hoping those X-rayed rolls papyri turns up more gems (I heard there's some choice Sophocles fragments in there). And maybe TLS will get with it and let people permanently access this stuff, including the original Greek. Philistines.
