New Sappho and new libraries


New Sappho and new libraries 13 May 2015 1.00pm — 1.30pm Venue: Lecture Theatre, Weston Library Speaker(s): Dr Dirk Obbink Description Lunchtime lecture accompanying the exhibition Marks of Genius: Masterpieces from the Collections of the Bodleian Libraries. A new papyrus published last year of Sappho's first book, largely overlapping with the Bodleian's extensive copy (MS. Gr. Class. c. 76 (P)/2 = P. Oxy. 1231) which facilitated its identification, sheds new light on the structuring of the Hellenistic poetry book and the ordering principles of the Alexandrian library - as well as providing several new poems of Sappho's. The talk will be followed by a Q&A session.
