Description

The revised edition of Grube's classic translation follows and furthers Grube's noted success in combining fidelity to Plato's text with natural readability, while reflecting the fruits of new scholarship and insights into Plato's thought since publication of the first edition in 1974. A new introduction, index, and bibliography by Professor Reeve are included in this new rendering.

Review quote

C.D.C. Reeve has taken the excellent Grube translation and, without sacrificing accuracy, rendered it into a vivid and contemporary style. It is intensity that is often lost in translation, but not here. This is not just a matter of style. The "Republic" is full of brilliant thoughts, and one needs to preserve brilliance to capture them. In the cave of translations, Reeve s revision of Grube's "Republic" is closest to the sun. --Jonathan Lear, University of Chicago"
