Read in April, 1996

Read this for AP English my senior year of high school, and it was probably the most challenging thing I ever read for a school assignment. I remember five or six of us from that class getting together on a Saturday afternoon and trying to decipher this book together, because none of us were getting it by ourselves. I liked the parts we were able to unlock, though, and I remember some of Socrates' comebacks being very clever. Maybe someday I'll go back and re-read it now that I'm older, and see if I understand it any better.
