i impulse-bought myself if not, winter (all of sappho’s work translated by anne carson) a while ago and it arrived yesterday and since then i’ve spent many of my waking hours enthralled by it. as a woman-loving woman and a poet i find it so gripping and beautiful and it rings true for me in many ways i highly recommend it
and while we’re at it, here’s a friendly reminder that feminism doesn’t mean you’re forced to like and respect every single female individual if someone gave you plenty reasons not to. There’s evil women and cruel women and women who will lie to you and cheat on you and do anything to put you in a bad position, there’s women who will manipulate you, play you, hurt you, women who don’t grant you a single fucking thing, and you are, in no way, obliged to forgive and treat them well just cause they’re women like you. What they do and say has absolutely nothing to do with their gender but solely with the fact that they are evil and rotten on the inside and you’ve got every right in the world to ignore them and deny them your support and fight back if they attack you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
