The Trial and Death of Socrates presents the trial and subsequent execution of Socrates in 399 BCE. Socrates was tried on the basis of two ambiguous charges: corrupting the youth and impiety. Euthyphro, one of Plato's early dialogues, takes place during the weeks leading up to Socrates' trial. Apology is Plato's version of the speech given by Socrates as he defends himself against the charges of being a man who corrupted the young, refused to worship the gods, and created new deities. Crito, a short dialogue by Plato, is a conversation between Socrates and his wealthy friend Crito regarding justice, injustice, and the appropriate response to injustice. Phaedo, depicts the death of Socrates, and is Plato's last dialogue covering Socrates' final days.

    " The hour of departure has arrived, and we go our ways--I to die, and you to live. Which is better God only knows. "

    " I personally found this edition very useful in its footnotes, and the translation was very concise and easy to read. I got this version for my intro to philosophy class, but I have also read some of these translations by W.H.D. Rouse. Both G.M.A. Grube and Rouse create a readable translation. Unless you need this version for a class, though, I'd suggest buying the complete dialogues of Plato (better buy for the money; the complete dialogues of Plato translated by Rouse only cost me $6.95).

    " This needs to be a stage play! The actual existence of Socrates is still a matter of dispute among scholars, but this is among Plato's finest dialogs. As Socrates' final moments draw near you can actually place yourself in the room with him and his students. A riveting work! "

    " Oh man. Haaaaated this book. Torture to get through. I'm sure the plot was decent but I was too distracted by how much I hated the book to notice. I want to give it zero stars. "
