Hatzis sees these songs as representing three different aspects of Sappho’s creative personality. The first, Invocation to Aphrodite, is a calling on goddess Aphrodite for her help in attracting a lover. The second song, The Marriage of Hector and Andromache, is an outpouring of joy and panache with little panache regard for musical sophistication or overall structure …just like a Greek wedding party after its first hour or so. The third song, Anaktoria, is the most reflective of the three. In contrast to the naive and occasionally sinister desire for possession of the first song or the frivolity of the second – where the citizens of Troy seem more impressed with Andromeche’s dowery than with the ominous implications this union has for their city – Anaktoria is about opting for the simple things in life – love being one of them – rather than the larger-than-life heroic acts that bring people and countries to their ruin.
