"Mr. Carman has undertaken in attempting to give us in English verse those lost poems of Sappho of which fragments have survived. The task is obviously not one of translation or of paraphrasing, but of imaginative and, at the same time, interpretive construction."- Introd.
"Of the edition, five hundred copies were printed ... by the De Vinne Press ... in October MDCCCCIII."
Incorporating translations of the fragments of Sappho.
