          About This Event

          Summary

          Please join us for a lecture by Classical Studies faculty candidate James B. Wells who will present a lecture based upon his research:

          "How to Do Things with Pindar's Words"

           

          The ancient Greek poet Pindar (518-438 BCE) composed choral songs celebrating the achievements of athletes who were victorious in games held in such venues as Olympia. Pindar's lyricism enchants or mystifies, making him an exemplar of the lyric mode. The difficulty of Pindar's language has made him a touchstone for philological acumen. His thumbnail encapsulations of traditional wisdom are epitaph-ready. Pindar is variously quotable or obtuse, soaring or suffocating. This presentation will explore Pindar and his afterlives by way of illustrating Wells's research, recent and future.
