Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book on Plato and the poets contains a table of contents, list of contributors, and acknowledgements. Platos discussions of poetry and the poets stand at the cradle of Western literary criticism. Plato is, paradoxically, both the philosopher who cites, or alludes to, works of poetry more than any other, and the one who is at the same time the harshest critic of poetry.

Keywords: Plato; poets
