Books – Sappho, The Awakening & Fifty Shades of Grey

In the wake of the recent success of E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey, Book Talk takes a close look at three major female writers from the past who have challenged the conventions of their day. I first look at the life of the Greek poet Sappho, one of the first ever known female writers. I then move stateside and examine the social challenges brought forward in Kate Chopin’s The Awakening. I finally, I discuss why so many women today are gobbling up Fifty Shades of Grey.
