Plato's style is as fine as any in Greek literature, and though frequent attempts have been made to render his works into equally good English, they have hardly succeeded. Grote was one of the greatest of the expounders of Platonic philosophy, and among later scholars the name of the late Professor Jowett must be mentioned. His translation of the Dialogues is considered masterly. The first complete translation into English was that by Taylor and Sydenham, published in 1804.
