From science fiction novels to films, Atlantis has held powerful sway over the popular imagination, providing a seductive image of a civilization, a sibling to our own, which seems just out of reach beneath the waves. The roots of this enchanting story stretch all the way back to the ancients. The first account of this mythical city is in the dialogues of Plato, and from his version all modern retellings are derived. First published in 1980, Plato's Atlantis Storyis the only connected commentary on the whole of Plato's writings on Atlantis. In this revised edition, Christopher Gill has collected the relevant sections of the Timaeusand the Critiasto present a full view of Plato's conception of Atlantis in the original Greek, as well as translations in English. To supplement the text, Gill has provided a revised commentary, vocabulary list, introduction, and a brief index. A valuable resource for scholars of classics, this book also contains the tools for Greek students at all levels to be able to read and understand Plato's writings on Atlantis.
