Example text

Swift could write no more. Fragments, when they are but motes (the unfinished works of a Spenser or Michelangelo are a different matter), touch us as the baby glove of a pharaoh which moved William Carlos Williams to tears, or the lock of Lucrezia Borgia’s hair which drew Byron back day after day to gaze (and to steal one strand for Landor); they “brave time” with a mite’s grip, missing by a rotten piece of linen or a grammarian’s inadvertent immortality the empty fame of the sirens’ song. To exist in fragments and in Greek is a doubly perilous claim on the attention of our time.

Her imagery is as stark and patterned as the vase painting of her time: long-legged horses with dressed manes, marching men, ships, women in procession to a god’s altar. Her words are simple and piercing in their sincerity, her lines melodically keen, a music for girls’ voices. and dancing. Never has poetry been this clear and bright. “Beautiful Sappho,” said Socrates. Somewhere, in the white ruins of Sardis or even on an unexamined shelf or a jar still intact in a midden, there is perhaps a copy of Sappho’s poems complete.

We live in the age of Picasso, who has given us a new vision of the classical world’s acrobats, mimes, street actors and singers as they have survived through the unbrolren lineage of festival, Italian comedy, the circus. The same figures who cavort at Mardi Gras throughout civilization today could be seen before Aristophanes was born–we have the evidence of painted vases to guide us here–wearing the same carnival costumes, hilarious mash, impersonating the same kind of comic types. We live in the age of Fellini, of Beckett, of Marcel Marceau.
