Lowell Edmunds

 Return to Rutgers Classics Home Page





This bibliography includes neither studies of individual odes nor notes on isolated lines or passages of individual odes, except that honoris causa I included Bundy's famous studies. Ilja Pfeijffer's Pindar bibliography includes nineteenth-century commentaries not listed here. For these earlier works, see also D. E. Gerber, A Bibliography of Pindar 1513-1966 (Case Western Reserve University Press, 1969). Please send additions and corrections to lowedmunds@gmail.com.
