One of the most famous works from classical antiquity is Plato's "Symposium". The symposium of this work is more literally translated to mean a dinner-party. At this dinner-party several notable figures from classical antiquity, including Phaedrus, Pausanias, Eryximachus, Aristophanes, Agathon, and Socrates in turn give speeches in praise of the god of love. An intriguing dialogue, "Symposium", is a must read for any student of classical antiquity. This edition includes the classic introduction and translation of Benjamin Jowett.
