1.  Four Texts on Socrates: Plato's "Euthyphro," "Apology of Socrates," "Crito," and Aristophanes' "Clouds" by Aristophanes
The list author says:

Symposium Of Plato: Shelley Translation
9.  Symposium Of Plato: Shelley Translation by Plato
The list author says:
  "I believe that Shelley, a master of the English language and insightful reader of Plato, is better able to capture the immediacy and meaning of Plato's text than most (if not all) modern Classical scholars. His poetic sense will serve our study of Plato's dialogue on Love well."

I have benefited immensely from Benardete's careful renderings of Ancient Greek poetry and philosophy, and the interpretive essays in this volume are certainly worth the price of the book. This text is NOT required."
