Abstract:

The Greek poet Pindar (c. 520-440 BC) wrote odes honouring the victors ofGreek sporting festivals such as the Olympic Games. They have long been asource of curiosity to scholars, particularly since they appear to mentionthe 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 andmeaningful structure, Pindar uses elaborate sporting metaphors to praisethe victors exuberantly and presents them as present-day heroes.
