9780674995345: Pindar: Nemean Odes, Isthmian Odes, Fragments: 2

Of the Greek lyric poets, Pindar (c.519-438 BC) was "by far the greatest for the magnificence of his inspiration" in Quintilian's view; Horace judged him "sure to win Apollo's laurels". The esteem of the ancients may help explain why a good portion of his work was carefully preserved. Most of the Greek lyric poets come down to us only in bits and pieces, but nearly a quarter of Pindar's poems survive complete. William H. Race now brings us, in two volumes, a new edition and translation of the four books of victory odes, along with surviving fragments of Pindar's other poems. Like Simonides and Bacchylides, Pindar wrote elaborate odes in honour of prize-winning athletes for public performance by singers, dancers and musicians. His 45 victory odes celebrate triumphs in athletic contests at the four great Panhellenic festivals: the Olympic, Pythian (at Delphi), Nemean, and Isthmian games. In these complex poems, Pindar commemorates the achievement of athletes and powerful rulers against the backdrop of divine favour, human failure, heroic legend and the moral ideals of aristocratic Greek society. Race provides brief intoductions to each ode and full explanatory footnotes, offering the reader guidance to these often difficult poems. His new Loeb Pindar also contains an annotated edition and translation of significant fragments, including hymns, paeans, dihyrambs, maiden songs and dirges.
