Speaker information

Sophia Blackwell

How the first female poet of the ancient world looks at love and loss in the 21st century. What would a lyric poet from Ancient Greece make of our modern romantic confusion? London's 'Sassy Sappho' Sophia Blackwell explores the poet's themes of love, loss, motherhood and women's place in society and the arts.

Part of LGBT History Month 2012.
