Home | Lesbian Erotic Poetry
Over the last few decades, the tradition of love poetry has witnessed revolutionary changes. While writing within the love poetry tradition, several women poets have also subverted the heteronormative conventions of the genre by expressing same sex desire. Lesbian love poetry traces its origins to the poet Sappho, now universally recognised as a symbol of same sex love.
