Pindaric Metre: The ‘Other Half’

This chapter describes the current trends of understanding of the metre which are not dactylo-epitrite. West follows Snell, whose analysis as aeolic embraces curious forms and does not make clear what forms are usual and what are not. Dale introduces the concept of link anceps into ‘the other half’. Although it is helpful, it is still wrong to analyse all the Pindaric verses on a single basis.

Keywords:   West, Snell, Dale, link anceps, Pindaric verses
