PREFACE
THIS book, which is intended principally for
the large and increasing class of readers who
wish to learn something of the masterpieces
of Greek literature, and who cannot easily
read them in Greek, was originally published
by Messrs. Macmillan in a different form.
Since its first appearance it has been revised
and corrected throughout, and largely re-
written. The chief part of the Introduction
is new. It is not intended to be a general
essay on Socrates, but only an attempt to
explain and illustrate such points in his life
and .teaching as are referred to in these
dialogues, which, taken by themselves, con-
tain Plato's description of his great master's
life, and work, and death.
The books which were most useful to me
in writing it are Professor Zeller's Socrates and
the Socratic Schools, and the edition of the
VI PREFACE.
Apology by the late Rev. James Riddell,
published after his death by the delegates
