Based on a fresh survey of the work, this revised edition of the late E.R. Dodds's standard edition of Plato's Gorgias includes two major manuscripts, collated here for the first time, and examines new papyri. A full introduction by E.R. Dodds, who was for many years Regius Professor of Greek at Oxford, supplements the text, explaining the subject and structure of the dialogue, its characters and historical setting, the real date of composition, and background to Plato and Athens at the time of composition.
