This issue celebrates one of ancient Greece’s most eloquent and celebrated poets, Pindar.

Pindar of Thebes (522-443 B.C.) utilized a style of lyric verses which survives to this day. Almost all of his early poems have been lost, but his reputation was probably established by his later hymns in honor of the gods. He developed into the greatest lyric poet of ancient Greece, respected throughout the Greek world. Of his 17 volumes, comprising almost every genre of choral lyric, only four have survived complete, however, they lack his musical settings. The extant poems, probably representing his masterpieces, are odes commissioned to celebrate triumphs in various Hellenic athletic games. Proud and religious in tone, they are noted for their complexity, rich metaphors, and intensely emotive language and it is this work from the ancient Greek lyric poet that was best preserved.
