Podrobný popis:

Publikace: The Complete Odes (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - Pindar. An excellent new translation of the Greek poet Pindar's victory

odes for winners in the ancient Games, with comprehensive,

up-to-date introductory material and annotation, of special

interest in Olympic years. This collaboration between translator

and leading scholar produces an accurate, readable text and

first-class contextualization. Anthony Verity's translation is

readable, lucid, and keeps close to the Greek without lapsing into

obscurity. The succinct introduction by Stephen Instone outlines

the essential nature of Pindar's odes as well as explaining the

nature of the Games, the events, and the participants Explanatory

notes help the reader to navigate Pindar's sometimes compressed and

allusive expressive technique. 'we can speak of no greater contest

than Olympia' The Greek poet Pindar (c. 518-428 BC) composed

victory odes for winners in the ancient Games, including the

Olympics. He celebrated the victories of athletes competing in foot

races, horse races, boxing, wrestling, all-in fighting and the

pentathlon, and his Odes are fascinating not only for their poetic

qualities, but for what they tell us about the Games. Pindar

praises the victor by comparing him to mythical heroes and the

gods, but also reminds the athlete of his human limitations. The

Odes contain versions of some of the best known Greek myths, such

as Jason and the Argonauts, and Perseus and Medusa, and are a

valuable source for Greek religion and ethics. Pindar's startling

use of language - striking metaphors, bold syntax, enigmatic

expressions - makes reading his poetry a uniquely rewarding

experience. Anthony Verity's lucid translations are complemented by

an introduction and notes that provide insight into competition,

myth, and meaning. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford

World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature

from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's

commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a

wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions
