A heartwarming, illustrated story of Mesteño, a mustang colt born wild, then captured and torn from his mother. Adoption saves this yearling, freeing him again. Appropriate for children of all ages.
Arguably the greatest Greek lyric poet, Pindar (518-438 B. C.) was a controversial figure in fifth-century Greece - a conservative Boiotian aristocrat who studied in Athens and a writer on physical prowess whose interest in the Games was largely philosophical. Pindar's Epinician Odes - choral songs extolling victories in the Games at Olympia, Delphi, Nemea and Korinth - cover the whole spectrum of the Greek moral order, from earthly competition to fate and mythology. But in C. M. Bowra's clear translation his one central image stands out - the successful athlete transformed and transfigured by the power of the gods.
Translated with an introduction by C. M. Bowra.
