If you are looking for a book including Plato's most essential writings for a price that will not dissuade you, your search is over. Rouse's translation is rich and his notes provide wonderful insight into Greek customs, Homer's works (to which Plato refers copiously in the Republic), and Plato's texts themselves. Must buy!
