Phèdre

By Plato

Remark parler, pourquoi écrire ? Voilà de quoi discutent, en cette fin du Ve siècle avant J.-C., deux Athéniens étendus près d'un gattilier en fleur, à l'ombre d'un platane sous lequel coule une resource, sur les bords de l'Ilissos, à quelques centaines de mètres de l'Acropole. Mais remark évoquer le pouvoir du discours sans parler de l. a. réalité qui produit le discours et sur laquelle s'exerce son pouvoir, l'âme humaine, résidu de ce principe qui meut les corps célestes et même l'univers en son entier ?

Extraordinairement riche par les thèmes qui y sont abordés l. a. mort, l'amour, l. a. rhétorique et l'écriture comme par sa forme on y trouve dialogues, discours, descriptions, mythes et prières , le Phèdre, qui témoigne de l'art littéraire de Platon, est l'un de ses plus grands et plus célèbres dialogues.
