Pindar and the cult of heroes by Bruno Currie( )

22 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 1,728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With a distinctive double focus on cultural history and literary criticism, this book challenges received opinion on both the cult of men in ancient Greece and the interpretation of Pindar's odes. As well as offering a new look at the genre of the victory ode, the book interprets five odes in detail, combining historicist, formalist, and philological perspectives. It constitutes a major contribution to the study of Greek poetry and culture during this period."--Jacket
