The Stratofortress poems and adaptations
Stone, James N.
MetadataShow full item record
The poems of The Stratofortress include adaptations into English of two Greek poets: Sappho, circa 650 BCE, whose poems were composed in the Ancient Greek dialect of her birthplace, the island of Lesbos, Greece; and Constantine P. Cavafy, who lived from April 29, 1863 to April 29, 1933, wrote his poems in Modern Greek, and lived most of his life in Alexandria, Egypt. My adaptations of Sappho’s fragments from the Ancient Greek are presented as songs, and numbered according to the standardized textual organization of the most reliable and commonly referenced scholarly editions of her fragmentary compositions (Lobell and Page, D.A. Campbell, E. Voigt, G. Nagy, D. Yatromanolakis).
