Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Focus Classical Library is dedicated to publishing the best of Classical literature in contemporary translations with notes and introductions so as to provide modern students access to the thought and context at the roots of contemporary culture.

“I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciate this book, which is clearly the work of a scholar who has integrated many aspects of classics, philosophy and philology into an exceptionally useful, engaging and accessible guide to two dialogues of Plato. Such work is not easy and Bailly has presented us with a very frank and useful introduction that shows his skill as a philosopher, commentator, and classicist.”

—G.S. Bowe, Bilkent University, Bryn Mawr Classical Review May 2004
