Three of the Dialogues of Plato form a drama of the trial and last days of Socrates before his death. These Dialogues are: Euthyphro, Apology, and Crito. In this book, the author adds choruses to the Dialogues in order to make the Dialogues suitable for presentation as a three-act drama. The choruses reflect the changing mood of Athenian citizens as Socrates at first approaches his trial and later waits for the day of his execution. The choruses also clarify some of Plato's ethical ideas. This book is a useful text for courses in Ancient Philosophy, History of Philosophy, or Introduction to Philosophy. The book might also be used in drama courses as 'an inspiration to students to dramatize some of the other dialogues.'
