This collection of essays, although written over a period of almost 30 years, deals with one problem: who is the I in the odes of the most celebrated ancient Greek poet, Pindar?. since antiquity, the complex and allusive language of the first-person statements has provoked many different answers, Professor Lefkowitz describes the function and nature of Pindar's I statements and proposes a controversial solution that would cause some histories of Greek literature to be rewritten. Rather than accept the view that the identity of the speaker could be subject to instant and unannounced change, she proposes that the voice of the victory odes is the poet himself, in his most professional persona. Professor Lefkowitz also refutes the traditional belief that the odes were sung by a chorus. She shows that in most, if not all cases, they were sung as solos and that Pindar was continuing the tradition established by the Homeric bards.

About the Author:

Mary R. Lefkowitz is at Wellesley College, Massachusetts.

Review:


"An essential preliminary to the serious study of Pindar."--Choice


"Lefkowitz's picture of Pindar and his poetry is clear and readily comprehensible....The major achievement of this series of articles is the establishment of Pindar's identity in his epinicians as a rhetorical construct, and the subjection of the scholia to a rigorous and enlightening...examination."--Bryn Mawr Classical Review
