Seth Benardete's authoritative and beautiful translation of Plato's immortal work on the power and meaning of human eros. Benardete is widely recognized as the most brilliant translator of classical Greek in the last century. This translation of the Symposium of Plato so carefully follows the original ancient Greek text that one could reconstruct the original from it, were it ever lost. Amazingly, Benardete never sacrifices the graceful beauty of Plato's language, and is able to capture the tone and imagery of the original. It is truly a connoisseur's translation of the first order, a gem for the genuine lover of classical literature, and a gift for those wishing to experience Plato without knowing Greek.
