"Ledbetter's argument is original and will excite discussion."--Choice
From the Inside Flap
"This is an excellent book that should change the ways in which we approach Plato's views on art, especially literature. Ledbetter unearths many riches as she places Socrates, and by implication Plato, in the context of what poets and other literary figures have said about the nature of poetry. Her book is highly original and strikes out along a new path."--Julius M. Moravcsik, Stanford University
"Ledbetter's views are bold and brilliantly argued. Her book solves some of the most critical and controversial problems in early Greek poetics."--Jenny Strauss Clay, University of Virginia
