Thucydides and Pindar

Historical Narrative and the World of Epinikian Poetry

Simon Hornblower

Thucydides was one of the greatest of the ancient Greek historians and Pindar one of the greatest Greek poets, specializing in celebratory odes for victors in the great games--above all at Olympia. Simon Hornblower puts these two towering figures side-by-side for the first time, demonstrating a thematic and literary kinship.
