I am writing what is in effect an extended commentary of Sappho's Fragment 130--the 'sweetbitter' love fragment.  Although I am not finished I have posted what I have so far on Medium: Sappho's "Sweetbitter": Her Taste, Its Legacy & The Implications.  One important takeaway from the research I have done for this is that Apuleius's Metamorphoses and especially the Cupid & Psyche episode is of far more importance to appreciating Sappho's influence than most people realize.
