Siegeslieder

Griechisch - Deutsch

Author: Pindar

Publisher: Walter de Gruyter

ISBN: 3050092173

Category: History

Page: 416

Pindar, geboren 522/518 v. Chr. bei Theben, hat Chorlyrik überwiegend religiösen Inhalts geschrieben: Hymnen, Paiane und Dithyramben, aber auch Mädchenlieder, Tanzlieder und Trauergesänge. Vollständig erhalten geblieben sind die vier Bücher Siegeslieder (Epinikien), die den strengen Stil mythischer Dichtung mit der Sprache der sportlichen Wettkämpfe verbinden. Mit dieser Verschränkung von aktuellem Anlass, mythischem Hintergrund, überlieferter Lebensweisheit und poetologischer Reflexion werden Spannungsbögen entworfen, die in der antiken wie in der modernen Lyrik einzigartig sind. Bereits in hellenistischer Zeit galt Pindar als der Lyriker schlechthin. Nicht anders sahen ihn die Römer, wobei Horaz in seiner Ode 4,2 warnt, der Versuch, Pindar nachzuahmen, könne leicht wie der Flug des Ikaros mit einer Bruchlandung enden. In Deutschland beginnt die Wirkungsgeschichte mit Klopstock, reicht über Hölderlin und die Dichter des Sturm und Drang, wie den jungen Goethe, hin zu Nietzsche und den George-Kreis. Auch in der Lyrik Ezra Pounds sind Nachklänge der Oden Pindars unverkennbar. Die vorliegende Ausgabe der Siegeslieder bietet neben dem griechischen Text eine Übersetzung, deren Präzision es dem Kenner des Griechischen ermöglicht, sich in den Urtext einzulesen. Pindars Bildwelt wird exakt reproduziert, gewissermaßen "dokumentiert", in einer rhythmisierten Prosa, die eigenständig neben früheren Pindar-Verdeutschungen steht. Die sprachliche Struktur des Originals wird in ihrer harten Fügung bewahrt und nicht einer Umsetzung in das Gewohnte geopfert. Zugleich wird eine Annäherung an eine unserer Zeit gemäße Sprachform erreicht, die dem literarisch Interessierten den Zugang zu Pindar entschließt. Eingehende Analyse zur Deutung und zur Wirkungsgeschichte können zu einem vertieften Verständnis führen.

Song Exchange in Roman Pastoral

Author: Evangelos Karakasis

Publisher: Walter de Gruyter

ISBN: 3110227061

Category: History

Page: 385

Agonistic or friendly song exchange in idyllic settings forms the very heart of Roman pastoral. By examining in detail the evolution of a wide variety of literary, linguistic, stylistic, and metrical features, the present book focuses on how politics, panegyrics, elegy, heroic, and didactic poetry function as guest genres within the pastoral host genre, starting from Vergil and continuing with Calpurnius Siculus, the Einsiedeln Eclogues and Nemesianus.

The Aeneid is a landmark of literary narrative and poetic sensibility. This 2004 guide gives a full account of the historical setting and significance of Virgil's epic, and discusses the poet's use of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, as well as the most celebrated episodes in the poem, including the tragedy of Dido and Aeneas' visit to the underworld. The volume examines Virgil's psychological and philosophical insights, and explains the poem's status as the central classic of European culture. The final chapter considers the Aeneid's influence on later writers including Dante and the Romantics. The guide to further reading has been updated and will prove to be an invaluable resource to students coming to The Aeneid for the first time.

Die aus Deutschland stammende und von der Aufklärung beeinflusste spätere Zarin Katharina die Große schildert in ihren eigenhändig verfassten, bis 1759 reichenden Memoiren die ersten Jahre am Hof ihres Ehemanns Zar Peter III., den sie 1762 stürzen sollte. Die Erinnerungen geben dabei einen überaus intimen Einblick in das Leben am Zarenhof und das feudalistische Herrschaftssystem der Epoche. Ergänzt werden die von Alexander Herzen übersetzten Memoiren mit zahlreichen Texten anderer Höflinge aus Katharinas Umgebung.
