Product description

New translation by Tom Griffith In Symposium, a group of Athenian aristocrats attend a party held by Agathon to celebrate his victory in the drama festival of the Dionysia. They talk about love until the drunken Alcibiades bursts in, and decides to talk about Socrates instead. "Symposium" gives a picture of the sparkling society that was Athens at the height of her empire. This classic discussion on love is presented in its ideal medium: a multi-voice recording.

Review quote

'Tell me the truth about love' nicely summarises Plato's Symposium thanks to the liveliness of Tom Griffith's translation. Spirited readings from David Shaw-Parker as Socrates and a strong supporting cast make the listener feel that they, like Apollodorus' friends, have a seat at the most famous philosophical dinner party of all time.' -- Christina Hardyment "The Times, February 4, 2006"
