Isle of Lesbos: Poetry : Historical


Historical Lesbian Poetry

On these pages you'll find poetry celebrating love between women. Not all poets on the page are lesbians or bisexual women (especially not the men!) and in some cases the orientation of the author is still being disputed by biographers. Please read the poet biographies and consult reference material for more detail as to why a particular poet's work is included in this collection.

Poets are listed in chronological order of birth
