Symposium of Xenophon of Athens: A New Critical Edition with a Facing-Page English Translation
|Author: ||Jackson, Donald F|
This work is a critical text of The Symposium, written by Xenophon of Athens in the fourth century B.C. Each page of Greek text is faced with a contemporary English translation which richly embodies the original meaning of the author.
“Xenophon’s genteel Symposium is no Satyricon. Yet it is outrageously homosocial and goes far beyond the subtle homo-eroticism of Plato’s dialogue of the same name... Symposium is the eighth in the series of
bi-lingual editions of Xenophon’s works published by The Edwin Mellen Press.
