Pindar's Songs for Young Athletes of Aigina

Anne Pippin Burnett

  • Concentrates upon choral performance, audience response, and the poetic means Pindar used to control this response
  • Explores the ways in which myth was used to define a communal character
  • Makes use of non-literary evidence, such as vase paintings and the sculptures of the Aphaia Temple
