Format: Paperback
Bowen offers a great edition of the Greek text designed for intermediate readers at a new-to-prose pace. His text is covered in helpful contextual as well as grammatical and vocabulary notes. His introduction succeeds at setting up the social and historical context of this work, and offers a short comparison with Plato's more famous counterpart.

I have one complain--this entire series has the horrible habit of printing in courier font. I find it hideous.

1 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Luc REYNAERT on July 8, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This is a more naturalistic version of Plato's Symposium, invented by Xenophon.

The ingredients are a copious meal and a drinking bout 'adorned' by a female acrobat. It all ends with a highly stimulating performance of the 'Dionysos and Ariadne' dance: 'Those who were not married swore that they would do it soon. Those who were, mounted on their horses and stormed home to enjoy their wives.'

The discussions don't attain far and away the philosophical heights of Plato. They centre on perfume, dance, wine and courage. The participants are also asked of which feature they are most proud. The answers vary from wealth, poverty, beauty, friendship, literature and justice.

Socrates explains his preference for spiritual love which never dies, whereas physical love passes away.

This symposium is sociologically interesting because it gives a fair impression of the daily life of Greek citizens.

Not a masterpiece.
