By Pindar

Nella presente edizione vengono pubblicate tutte le opere di Pindaro (520-518 a.C.), il più grande esponente della lirica corale arcaica. Nell'edizione alessandrina, l. a. produzione di Pindaro, eccezionalmente ampia, occupava 17 libri ordinati according to generi: Inni, Peani, Prosodi, Parteni, Iporchemi, Encomi, Treni, Epinici. Sopravvivono integralmente solo quattro libri degli Epinici, divisi secondo le gare panelleniche di cui celebravano i vincitori: essi contengono rispettivamente 14 odi Olimpiche, 12 Pitiche, eleven Nemee, eight Istmiche. Le altre opere sono word solo da numerosi frammenti in cui appaiono grandiose descrizioni del mondo divino, racconti mitici, solenni enunciati etici e anche tratti di arguta grazia e voci d'amore. L'epinicio di Pindaro si articola secondo tre linee tematiche svolte con grande varietà di motivi: l'elogio, che contiene un succinto riferimento al vincitore e all'occasione sportiva; il mito, collegato sovente con los angeles famiglia o con los angeles patria del celebrato, che costituisce l. a. parte di maggiore ampiezza e impegno poetico; e l. a. gnome, ossia l'enunciazione di sentenze religiose e morali. Enzo Mandruzzato ci restituisce con los angeles sua traduzione un "Pindaro arcaico" in tutta los angeles sua lontananza: considerato according to tutta l'antichità di gran lunga il maggiore dei lirici, come diceva Quintiliano, parrebbe infatti inassimilabile al mondo moderno. Eppure il soggiorno nel suo mondo arcaico — è los angeles tesi del saggio introduttivo — non è meno attraente di quelle civiltà lontane che proprio oggi si cerca di conoscere e di non lasciar perire. Ma con los angeles luce del mondo greco, l'energia dell'intelligenza e il gusto del gratuito, che sono il seme di tutte le conquiste della civiltà occidentale.

This air of realism was heightened by a promotional stunt Irving pulled off with the help of Henry Brevoort and James Kirke Paulding. In the weeks prior to publication, he published a report in the New York Evening Post that an elderly gentleman by the name of Knickerbocker had wandered off from his lodgings without paying his rent, leaving behind only a collection of papers in manuscript. In a subsequent issue, a letter to the editor reported that a gentleman matching Knickerbocker舗s description had been seen in the Hudson River Valley, walking north toward Albany.

Thus accoutred, he gravely walked into the room, with his ivory-headed ebony cane in one hand, and gently swaying his three-cornered beaver with the other.
