Plato: Trial and The Death of Socrates (The) - Apology / Phaedo (Unabridged)
Plato
Read by G. Griffin
The Trial and Death of Socrates remains a powerful document, partly because it was a true - perhaps in certain parts verbatim - account of the end of one of the greatest figures in history. In Apology Socrates defends himself before the Athenian court against charges of corrupting youth. Phaedo is the account, by a young man, of the actual last words and moments of Socrates. These are presented with scene-setting introductions to the historical situation. They are performed, unabridged, by a cast led by Bruce Alexander as Socrates, following his successful reading of The Republic for Naxos AudioBooks.
