Will the real Sappho please stand up?

Throughout history, Sappho has been
labeled a genius, a pervert, a lovely
blushing maiden, a homely bluestocking,
a nymphomaniac, an uptight schoolmistress,
a solitary, a diva, a cult leader, an
abandoned lover, an irresistible seducer,
the "Tenth Muse," a mother, a feminist,
a victim, a masochist and a sadist.
