    Little is known with certainty about the life of Sappho, or Psappha in her native Aeolic dialect. She was born probably about B.C. to an aristocratic family on the island of Lesbos during a great cultural flowering in the area. Apparently her birthplace was either Eressos or Mytilene, the main city on the island, where she seems to have lived for some time.   Author: Virgil (70–19 BCE) Translator: Robert Fagles Publisher: Penguin Books () Bought from: Book Depository Introduction The Aeneid is an epic poem composed by Virgil in Latin and is his most famous work.

THE BLACK MAN. FIRST CHAPTER. “That time changes all things” is a saying so old and so true as to admit of no argument. It is exemplified in so many different ways as to require no comment, and yet when we hear the phrase used glibly and thoughtlessly, every day, it is but natural to wonder if the one who uses it realizes what he is saying, or rather, if he knows what those few.
