Politeia

Reading experience

Evidence

"With Shakespeare also I hold much gay and serious intercourse; and I have read, since coming here, three or four dialogues of Plato, with the critical diligence of a junior sophister. The ""Politeia"", indeed, as a gentle exercise of my mind, I am writing out in literal bald English; which I do chiefly with a view to compel myself to read Greek accurately, and not to gobble it, bones and all."
