Of the Greek lyric poets, Pindar (ca. 518-438 BCE) 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 honor of prize-winning athletes for public performance by singers, dancers, and musicians. His forty-five 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 favor, human failure, heroic legend, and the moral ideals of aristocratic Greek society. Readers have long savored them for their rich poetic language and imagery, moral maxims, and vivid portrayals of sacred myths. Race provides brief introductions to each ode and full explanatory footnotes, offering the reader invaluable guidance to these often difficult poems. His new Loeb Pindar also contains a helpfully annotated edition and translation of significant fragments, including hymns, paeans, dithyrambs, maiden songs, and dirges

Pindar's songs for young athletes of Aigina by Anne Pippin Burnett( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of the forty-six surviving victory odes of Pindar, eleven give praise to athletes from the island of Aigina in the Saronic Gulf. This book offers studies of those eleven songs, preceded by a brief survey of the island's history, a sketch of its peculiar aristocracy, and a description of the sculptural programme of its early fifth-century temple of Aphaia--because the author's concentration is always upon effects produced within the immediate audience when the odes were performed. As hosts or guests, members of a small commercial elite watched while dancers celebrated the athletic success of one of their own number, and the conditions of performance remained essentially unchanged from the 490s through the 460s BC, in spite of Aigina's gradual loss of power. The songs that Pindar supplied for these occasions invite a close consideration of the epinician mode, for all are ample in scale and complex in design, while at the same time all share a local awareness of the pediments of the Aphaia Temple and all (so it is argued) salute victors who are under 18 years of age. In addition, each performance displays a mythic marvel, and Anne Pippin Burnett argues that these segments of narrative are meant to bring a touch of performance to a worldly celebration, offering to the gathered masculine auditors imperishable proofs of their common identity. Burnett's overall concern is with Pindar's techniques for leading spectators into a shared experience of inspired success, but she is also alert to the historical realities of Greek athletic contest.--Book jacket
