Sample text

But in fact one finds this verb associated with the noun \omos several times and in each instance the spatial implications are different— a warning to anyone who thinks he can slip through Pindar's passages of "conventional diction" quickly. 6-9) Zeus is also asked to welcome the kpmos for a victor in Kamarina and now the prayer is specifically addressed to the Zeus that holds the heights of nearby Aetna. 18-20) Apollo is said to have welcomed the victor "from Kirrha, crowned with the flowers of Parnassos and with a Dorian \dmos"; the far-darting god seems to be smiling on the victor both in the original procession and crowning at the sacred site of the games and then again on his return home to Aegina.

In Sophocles the unity of poet, dancer, and musician reaches its a\me among dramatists, the moment of perfec­ tion just before the flower withers. ) (3) In Pindar the unity of poet, dancer, and musician reaches its perfection among choral poets, and that means among poets who under optimal conditions were present as leaders, in propria persona, of the choruses for which they devised the words and music and choreography alike.
