Abstract:

The Greek poet Pindar (c. 520-440 BC) wrote odes honouring the victors of
Greek sporting festivals such as the Olympic Games. They have long been a
source of curiosity to scholars, particularly since they appear to mention
the victor only in passing. This book, using the methodology of Charles S.
Peirce's semiotics and by reconstructing the cultural historical setting,
reveals that this impression is misleading: in songs with a coherent and
meaningful structure, Pindar uses elaborate sporting metaphors to praise
the victors exuberantly and presents them as present-day heroes.
