The march up country : a translation of Xenophon's Anabasis by Xenophon( Book )

1,382 editions published between 1400 and 2018 in 24 languages and held by 5,137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Xenophon (ca. 430 to ca. 354 BCE) was a wealthy Athenian and friend of Socrates. He left Athens in 401 and joined an expedition including ten thousand Greeks led by the Persian governor Cyrus against the Persian king. After the defeat of Cyrus, it fell to Xenophon to lead the Greeks from the gates of Babylon back to the coast through inhospitable lands. Later he wrote the famous vivid account of this 'March Up-Country' (Anabasis); but meanwhile he entered service under the Spartans against the Persian king, married happily, and joined the staff of the Spartan king, Agesilaus. But Athens was at war with Sparta in 394 and so exiled Xenophon. The Spartans gave him an estate near Elis where he lived for years writing and hunting and educating his sons. Reconciled to Sparta, Athens restored Xenophon to honour but he preferred to retire to Corinth. Xenophon's Anabasis is a true story of remarkable adventures
Xenophōntos Peri hippikēs by Xenophon( )

101 editions published between 1539 and 2019 in 8 languages and held by 3,782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On horsemanship deals with the selection, care and training of horses in general. Military training and the duties of the cavalry commander are dealt with in the Hipparchicus. Written in about 350 BC, the treatises of Xenophon were considered the earliest extant works on horsemanship in any literature."--Page 4 of cover
Memorabilia by Xenophon( Book )

545 editions published between 1542 and 2019 in 12 languages and held by 2,704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An essential text for understanding Socrates, Xenophon's Memorabilia is the compelling tribute of an affectionate student to his teacher, providing a rare firsthand account of Socrates' life and philosophy. The Memorabilia is invaluable both as a work of philosophy in its own right and as a complement to the study of Plato's dialogues. The longest of Xenophon's four Socratic works, it is particularly revealing about the differences between Socrates and his philosophical predecessors.Far more obviously than Plato in the dialogues, Xenophon calls attention in the Memorabilia to his own relationship with Socrates. A colorful and fully engaged writer, Xenophon aims above all to convince his readers of the greatness of Socrates' thought and the disgracefulness of his conviction on a capital charge. In thirty-nine chapters, Xenophon presents Socrates as an ordinary person and as a great benefactor to those associated with him
Symposium by Xenophon( )

40 editions published between 1530 and 2019 in 7 languages and held by 1,984 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Symposium that Xenophon wrote has lived in the shadow of the more famous one by Plato, so much so that it has not received a full commentary in English for well over a hundred years. Yet it is a work as useful for its Greek as it is precious for its content." "Socrates is the hero of each Symposium, but most of our understanding of him is usually owed to Plato; we risk assuming that his portrait of Socrates is right. Xenophon saw the man differently: his picture is independent, and it is the only significant surviving alternative view." "Moreover, the scene that Xenophon paints in his Symposium has a vigour and wit of its own. The work is a document of prime importance for the classical Greek society which we study most and know best: it is set at the male heart of it." "Thirdly, Xenophon's Greek is lucid and unforced. The editor has been using the text for a number of years to help students bridge the gap between what they learn from their beginners' courses and the richer Greek of more fashionable texts. Hence an unprecedented amount of help with the language, and a large vocabulary, as well as the notes usual in this series on the content."--Jacket
Agesilaus by Xenophon( )

26 editions published between 1754 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Apologie de Socrate by Xenophon( )

21 editions published between 1829 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the greatest and most influential thinkers in human history, Greek philosopher Socrates was ultimately sentenced to death after being convicted of impiety and corrupting the minds of Athens' youth. However, rather than shirking his death sentence, Socrates emphatically embraced it. In The Apology, Socrates' student Xenophon explains why his prominent teacher chose what some would consider an ignominious end
The memorabilia : recollections of Socrates by Xenophon( )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 1,841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Greek philosopher Socrates was accused of and ultimately put to death for impiety and corrupting the youth of Athens. This extraordinary volume from his friend and follower Xenophon offers a spirited defense of the philosopher, including a summary of Socrates' own closing argument to the court
The cavalry general by Xenophon( )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The anabasis of Cyrus by Xenophon( )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 1,600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the foundational works of military history and political philosophy, and an inspiration for Alexander the Great, the Anabasis of Cyrus recounts the epic story of the Ten Thousand, a band of Greek mercenaries hired by Cyrus the Younger to overthrow his brother, Artaxerxes, king of Persia and the most powerful man on earth. It shows how Cyrus' army was assembled covertly and led from the coast of Asia Minor all the way to Babylon; how the Greeks held the field against a superior Persian force; how Cyrus was killed, leaving the Greeks stranded deep within enemy territory; and how many of them overcame countless dangers and found their way back to Greece.Their remarkable success was due especially to the wily and decisive leadership of Xenophon himself, a student of Socrates who had joined the Ten Thousand and, after most of the Greek generals had been murdered, rallied the despondent Greeks, won a position of leadership, and guided them wisely through myriad obstacles.In this new translation of the Anabasis, Wayne Ambler achieves a masterful combination of liveliness and a fidelity to the original uncommon in other versions. Accompanying Ambler's translation is a penetrating interpretive essay by Eric Buzzetti, one that shows Xenophon to be an author who wove a philosophic narrative into his dramatic tale. The translation and interpretive essay encourage renewed study of the Anabasis as a work of political philosophy. They also celebrate its high adventure and its hero's adroit decision-making under the most pressing circumstances

The Expedition of Cyrus tells the story of the march of the Ten Thousand.

Their long march, across mountains and plateaux to the sight of 'The sea! The sea!', back to the fringes of the Greek world, is the most exciting adventure story to survive from the ancient world. - ;'Men, the enemy troops you can see are all that stands between us and the place we have for so long been determined to reach. We must find a way

Memorabilia ; Oeconomicus by Xenophon( Book )

38 editions published between 1923 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Xenophon (ca. 430 to ca. 354 BCE), a member of a wealthy but politically quietist Athenian family and an admirer of Socrates, left Athens in 401 BCE to serve as a mercenary commander for Cyrus the Younger of Persia, then joined the staff of King Agesilaus II of Sparta before settling in Elis and, in the aftermath of the battle of Leuctra in 371 BCE, retiring to Corinth. His historical and biographical works, Socratic dialogues and reminiscences, and short treatises on hunting, horsemanship, economics, and the Spartan constitution are richly informative about his own life and times. This volume collects Xenophon's portrayals of his associate, Socrates. In Memorabilia (or Memoirs of Socrates) and in Oeconomicus, a dialogue about household management, we see the philosopher through Xenophon's eyes. Here, as in the accompanying Symposium, we also obtain insight on life in Athens. The volume concludes with Xenophon's Apology, an interesting complement to Plato's account of Socrates's defense at his trial."--Publisher website
