Gildersleeve (1831 1924) was an American classicist who spent much of his career at Johns Hopkins University. This is his influential 1895 edition of Pindars Olympian and Pythian Odes, a body of work notable for its insights into lyric poetry and modes of self-understanding.

Gildersleeves remarkable introductory essay outlines Pindars lineage, patriotism, and poetic development, as well as his poetic themes and structures. It focuses particularly on Pindars new approach to old themes, his view of government and the human condition, and his role as a conveyer of Greek ethics.

The poems are presented in the original Greek, followed by extensive notes that gloss the historical specificities and grammatical structures. Gildersleeves index highlights major characters, battles, forms and metaphors. Although the scholarly analysis later in the book is very thorough, Gilderdales introduction itself is accessible to anybody interested in ancient Greek poetry.
