The definitive translation of Plato'sRepublic, the most influential text in the history of Western philosophy

Long regarded as the most accurate rendering of Plato'sRepublicthat has yet been published, this widely acclaimed translation by Allan Bloom was the first to take a strictly literal approach. In addition to the annotated text, there is also a rich and valuable essay -- as well as indices -- which will enable readers to better understand the heart of Plato's intention.

This edition includes an introduction by renowned critic Adam Kirsch, setting the work in its intellectual context for a new generation of students and readers.

Allan Bloom, 1930-1992, was a professor of social thought at the University of Chicago. He was the author of many books, including the number one bestsellerThe Closing of the American Mind.


Adam Kirschis a poet and critic whose work appears regularly in theNew York Review of Books,New Yorker,Tablet, and other publications. The author of three books of poems and several books of criticism and biography, Kirsch lives in New York City.
The best available English translation....It compels intelligent readers to come to grips with what Plato actually wrote. American Political Science Review
