Costruire l’immortalità

Studio comparativo sulla composizione ad anello della Terza Pitica di Pindaro.

Seminar "Lavori in Corso per ... Roberto Velardi"

Napoli, Università di Napoli ‘L'Orientale', Antisala del Gabinetto degli Specchi. 22.02.2023

Abstract: This presentation inaugurates my new project LORACOLA. It is a comparative analysis of a ring composition. I will read and comment on some passages from Pindar's Pythian Three. I will then focus on a possible Old Indic parallel, namely: a Rigvedic hymn to the Aśvins, the healing deities of the Vedic pantheon. My comparative study reveals a number of precise matches between the themes, phraseology and structure of the two poems.
