The dialogue begins with a playful discussion of erotic passion, then extends the theme to consider the nature of inspiration, love and knowledge. The centerpiece is the myth of the charioteer - the famous and moving account of the vision, fall and incarnation of the soul. Professor Hackforth here translates the dialogue for the student and general reader. There is a running commentary on the course of the argument and the meaning of the key Greek terms, and a full intoduction to explain the philosophical background and the place of this work among Plato's writings.

Review:

This is a fine translation, both fluent and accurate. It captures the range of tonalities of the original in elegant English that is neither stiffly formal nor cheaply colloquial....The supplementary matter is appropriate and useful. The introduction is crisp and clear, the interpretive essay illuminating...Scully has done a sound and serious job of translating and annotating for the general reader. Above all, his translation is excellent in respect to style and clarity: really a pleasure to read.

-- David Konstan, Brown University

From the Back Cover:

Translation in English with introduction, notes, glossary, appendices, interpretive essay and introduction. The text includes new insights into the nature of Greek love, including rarely seen illustrations (stone carving and vase painting).
