SELECT BIBLIOGRAPHY
Further books and articles are mentioned as appropriate in the notes at the end of the book. This bibliography contains only the works I consider the most important and helpful companions to reading Gorgias--works which are unlikely to be superseded for some time yet, or at least display a variety of interpretations.
A. Translations
The three best previous translations are:
HAMILTON W., Plato: Gorgias (Harmondsworth: Penguin, 1960)
HELMBOLD W. C., Plato: Gorgias ( Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill, 1952)
ZEYL D. J., Plato: Gorgias ( Indianapolis: Hackett, 1987)
Two recent translations are rather plain and literal:
ALLEN R. E., The Dialogues of Plato i. ( New Haven: Yale University Press, 1984)
IRWIN T., Plato: Gorgias ( Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1979)
Nevertheless, Irwin's book is an essential companion to reading Gorgias, because the commentary is crammed with acute philosophical analysis of the text.

B. Editions
The only edition now worth consulting is:
DODDS E. R., Plato: Gorgias ( London: Oxford University Press, 1959)

C. Plato in General
Plato is set in his general ancient philosophical context, with admirable precision, by:
IRWIN T., Classical Thought ( Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1989)
The best introductions to and surveys of Plato's work as a whole are:
FIELD G. C., The Philosophy of Plato, 2nd edn. ( London: Oxford University Press, 1969)
GOSLING J. C. B., Plato ( London: Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1973)
