Phaedrus : With a Selection of Early Greek Poems and Fragments About Love Paperback

Edited by Alexander Nehamas, Paul Woodruff

Description

"A superb translation that captures the rhetorical brilliance of the Greek...The translation is faithful in the very best sense: it reflects both the meaning and the beauty of the Greek text...The footnotes are always helpful, never obtrusive.

A one-page outline is useful since there are no editorial additions to mark major divisions in the dialogue.

An appendix containing fragments of early Greek love poetry helps the reader appreciate the rich, and perhaps elusive, meaning of eros...The entire Introduction is crisply written, and the authors' erudition shines throughout, without a trace of pedantry...this is an excellent book that deservedly should find wide circulation for many years to come". --Tim Mahoney, University of Texas at Arlington
