Lists with This Book. Nov 26, Markus rated it really liked it Shelves: The author was just 26 years old. The idea of Sappho, born in Mytilene, singing to her lyre, and falling in love with Phaon, is based on historical backgrounds of ancient Greece.
Other than her crown of victory, she grillparzeg back a young athlete and lover, beautiful and slender Phaon. It seems that Sappho is not sure of Phaon, and in an attempt to ascertain his lover forever, she performs a ceremony and song addressed to Aphrodite, asking for help from her protective goddess. Sappho quickly observes the situation, and even though she loves Melitta like her daughter, organizes the exile of the child to Chios, grillpadzer the sea, to some friends.
Sappho by Franz Grillparzer
Meanwhile, Phaon gets do know about the planned shipment. He snatches the little girl and uses the swppho vessel for his escape, together with Melitta. As destiny would have it, they are soon caught up with and brought back before Sappho. Sappho has the right to condemn Melitta, her servant, and slave to death.
Melitta in tears and obedience accepts the verdict willingly. Phaon, in the name of love and youth, pleads for her life and his liberty. Sappho, in deep pain and suffering, returns to her goddess to ask for advice and decision.
The outcome is the griillparzer end, as was recorded by history some years before Grillparzer set out to write his drama. For me, the beauty of this work, is in the extraordinary quality of the language of poetic verse, throughout the play.
