Meet the Author

Plato (c. 427–347 b.c.) founded the Academy in Athens, the prototype of all Western universities, and wrote more than twenty philosophical dialogues.

W.H.D. Rouse was one of the great 20th century experts on Ancient Greece, and headmaster of the Perse School, Cambridge, England, for 26 years. Under his leadership the school became widely known for the successful teaching of Greek and Latin as spoken languages. He derived his knowledge of the Greeks not only from his wide studies of classical literature, but also by travelling extensively in Greece. He died in 1950.

    Great Translation, Great Notes, Essential Read

    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!

    Hooked

    I'm very particular when it comes to books, at least ones that are not mystery/suspense novels, so when I was hooked by simply reading the sample I knew it was wonderful.
