      That’s a fair point. I’m hoping that someone here will propose the next selection from more contemporary fare. My problem is I’m really out of touch with good fiction, especially newer stuff.

      Maybe one of the Leaguers would like to do the next book?Report

    This is a *GREAT* one to start with. (The only other one I’d feel a worthy challenger to start with would be the Lysistrata.)

    It’s been a while since I’ve read this (well, excepting Arisophanes’s story… I keep coming back to that one). I look forward to reading it again!Report

    Looking forward to it. Haven’t read any Plato since a high-scool trip to Greece about 10 years ago.Report

    Rufus,

    My collected dialogues is the Bolligen Series edited by Edith Hamilton and Huntington Cairns. My Symposium translation is Michael Joyce’s. Did I buy the wrong collection?Report
