Pythian eleven by Pindar( Book )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pindar's Pythian Eleven is a miniature masterpiece: a poem praising a young athlete which presents a vivid and important account of the Agamemnon legend. Yet it contains so many difficulties (of text, metre, dating and interpretation) that even Wilamowitz regarded it as one of Pindar's most obscure poems. This new edition (the first full-scale treatment that the poem has ever received) provides answers to the problems that have prevented proper appreciation of the work. In addition to the full introduction and commentary, the book also has a new text based on re-examination of the manuscripts, detailed metrical discussion and a translation."--Jacket

Pindar's Paeans : a reading of the fragments with a survey of the genre by Pindar( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The paean, or sacred hymn to Apollo, had a central place in the song-dance culture of classical Greece. The most celebrated examples of the genre in antiquity were Pindar's paeans, which became known to scholars in this century thanks to the discovery of papyrus fragments, some published as recently as 1989. This book offers the first comprehensive re-evaluation of the poems. It includes a text and translation of all the paeans of Pindar, newly classified, with a supplement comprising fragments from poems of uncertain genres. Dr Rutherford accompanies each fragment with an interpretation dealing with issues of religion, performance, and genre. A two-part comprehensive introduction looks at general aspects of the genre, including early history, functions, performance, form, eidographic indeterminacy, use in Greek tragedy, and paeanic ambiguity - as well as offering an overview of the Pindaric paeans and their Hellenistic edition."--Jacket
