Comments

A fine collection of examples of the Pindarique Ode, named for Greek poet Pindar (c. 522-433 BC) who was famous for lyric poems which celebrated momentous events and heroic achievements. The form was widely admired and imitated, most notably by Horace, but also much later by numerous English poets in the 17th and early 18th centuries.
