Synopsis

'I'll stop doing it as soon as I understand what I'm doing.'

Somewhere between a historical account and work of philosophy, Socrates' Defence details the final plea of Plato's beloved mentor.

Introducing Little Black Classics: 80 books for Penguin's 80th birthday.

Here are stories lyrical and savage; poems epic and intimate; essays satirical and inspirational; and ideas that have shaped the lives of millions.
