Which translator for Plato's Republic?

Recommended Posts

IME, the longtime favorite among scholars of ancient political thought is Allan Bloom's translation, which hews quite literally to the original Greek. That is the one I use and like, but I don't read Greek so I can't speak meaningfully to the quality of the translation. It is also possible that classicists, who come at the text a bit differently, may have a different preference -- I do not know about that.
