Republic: ED.F.M.Cornford


Product Description
Product Details


The old Greek chestnut gets a new translation by Allen, who has received kudos for his lively translation of Plato's dialogs. Students mystified by the old Cornford translation (I know I was) might find this one easier to grasp. This edition also has an intro by Allen. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

"Very readable translation....The synopses at the start of each chapter are also quite helpful. The division into more natural chapters and sections is far superior to the 10 book divisions."--Janet L. Binder, University of Minnesota "Remains the most accessible and readable of the Republic translations. AN excellent introduction to the literary beauty of Plato."--Charles S. Brown, Emporia State University "A classic! Well presented for introductory courses."--Gray Cox, College of the Atlantic "The translation is clear, the notes useful, and the preface a fine introduction to principles of translation--all this for a reasonable price."--Robert C. Bennion, Brigham Young University "I've found that Cornford's translation is understandble to beginning students and his summaries help clarify the texts for students."--Stephen R. Dickerson, South Puget Sound Community College "The clearest, most readable and philosophically most reliable translation of the Republic available."--Harvey Burstein, Queens College "The clearest and most lucid translation of Plato's meaning in language that is both simple and colloquial and yet faithful to the philosophical complexity of Plato's ideas."--Harvey Burstein, Queens College "Still one of the best!"--Katherine King, University of California, Los Angeles "Without question the best available edition...for the beginning student. Cornford's translation and arrangement are unsurpassed."--Phillip B. Greene, Oxnard College
