Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Long regarded as the most accurate rendering of Platos Republic that has yet been published, this widely acclaimed work is the first strictly literal translation of a timeless classic. This second edition includes a new introduction by Professor Bloom, whose careful translation and interpretation of The Republic was first published in 1968. In addition to the corrected text itself there is also a rich and valuable essay—as well as indexes—which will better enable the reader to approach the heart of Platos intention.

Synopsis:

"Long regarded as the most accurate rendering of Platos Republic that has yet been published, this widely acclaimed work is the first strictly literal translation of a timeless classic. This second ed"

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 439-472) and index.
