Phaedrus, authored by Plato, is a dialogue between Socrates, a protagonist and Phaedrus, an interlocutor. Written around the same time as Plato's major works including Republic and Symposium, Phaedrus focuses on the important topic of love and discusses the use of rhetoric while also touching on other similar subjects including reincarnation and eroticism. This is an excellent book for those who are interested in the major works of Plato and also those just starting to discover Plato's writings.
