Plato Gorgias (Penguin Classics), 8 Dec 2009
When i bought this book i wanted to get acquainted with a appropriate English translation of Gorgias. And i am quite satisfied with what i got. As i haven't read the original non-translated work i can't say anything else about the translation, although one thing i disliked was the replacing of original Greek terms by English counterparts, which don't provide the whole meaning of the original. The book also had a short introduction on Plato and some explanations at the end of the book. Short summaries by the translator were also giving at the end or beginning of each chapter along with his opinion. All in all, i got what i wanted.
