Among them is the hitherto unedited Epistola de lamentabili statu Francie, which was ap- parently written soon after the defeat at Agincourt (1415). The text, arranged as an allegorical vision, describes the negative consequences of the inner-French conflicts and calls for an end to them. From a formal point of view, the text is impressive for its prose, which largely approximates metrical poetry.</p> </div> </div> </div> Thomas Haye Copyright (c) 2023 Thomas Haye Mon, 27 Feb 2023 00:00:00 +0100 Crito's Social Circles in Plato's Crito <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>In this paper I identify and discuss three different circles concerning Crito’s social relations: the internal circle of those who know him well; the external circle of those who are Crito’s fellow citizens but who do not know him well; and the third circle which is the <em>polis</em> with its laws. Crito uses – both consciously and unconsciously – different stratagems in dealing with these different circles. The speech of the Laws is Socrates’ attempt to allow Crito to see his actual behavior, as if reflected in a mirror. In fact Crito harms his friends, cheats his fellow citizens and destroys the <em>polis</em>.</p> </div> </div> </div> Yosef Z. Liebersohn Copyright (c) 2023 Yosef Z.
