Price: $ Until a century ago, the fifth-century Greek poet Bacchylides was known only by nonsequential lines buried as quotations in the writings of other ancient authors.

With the discovery in of a papyrus containing his work, 1, lines were reassembled and the poems of Bacchylides finally began to take shape for the modern reader.

In this landmark collection of essays, renowned classicist Charles Segal offers detailed analyses of major texts from archaic and early classical Greek poetry - in particular, works of Alcman, Mimnermus, Sappho, Pindar, Bacchylides, and Corinna.

Titles include: A Complete Manual. BACCHYLIDES 17 Bacchylides specialized in writing odes, mainly to the winners of different athletic competitions. However, as one of Pindar’s contemporaries, his work did not gain much recognition during his lifetime.

Many of his works that we know of today were assumed to be lost until his papyrus texts were discovered in the late 19th century. Bacchylides, nephew of Simonides and rival of Pindar, wrote choral poetry of many types.

We have a number of his victory odes—poems celebrating victories in athletic contests—as well as dithyrambs and other hymns. He was a master of the captivating narrative. These three odes are the final odes in the Nemean book of odes, and there is a reason for their inclusion.

Anne Burnett shows us the art of Bacchylides in the context of Greek lyric traditions. She discusses the beginnings of choral poetry and the functions of the choral myth; she describes the purposes of the victory song in particular and the practices of Bacchylides and Pindar as they fulfilled their victory commissions.

In analyzing individual poems Burnett's approach is two-fold, for each ode. Another, earlier, version than that of Herodotus by the poet Bacchylides about the salvation of Croesus is depicted on an Attic Greek amphora, which shows a slave lighting fire to the funeral pyre that Croesus has voluntarily erected in order to burn himself and his family rather than suffer defeat by Cyrus.
