Hackett Classics

Galileo displaying his telescope

The texts within the Hackett Classics series encompass both literary classics and non-fiction philosophical, historical and political academic discourse. It includes full-length texts, as well as anthologies of shorter texts such as poems and famous letters. Intended for use in contemporary study, many of the editions in this series are modern translations of original novels and plays, such as the works of Plato and Euripides. These translations render the dense language of the past accessible to modern students, while still staying true to the original texts. Detailed accompanying footnotes also contribute to this comprehensible style, as well as expert introductions, analysis of important quotes, and glossaries of terms.
