Plato’s Republic is the Ferrari/Griffith edition, while Symposium is Gill’s. More’s Utopia is Turner’s translation. R.U.R. is the Selver/Playfair edition. Njál’s Saga is Dasent’s translation. The Tao is Legge’s translation.

Yay for reading more – fourteen completed reads in a calendar month is my best effort since I started this blog, surpassing the twelve in March 2016. That said, four of the reads were plays, so I suppose there’s an asterisk here.
