I acquainted myself with Symposium back highschool along with a few other of Plato's dialogues. I find myself now eager to reacquaint myself with the work in hopes of actually adapting a screenplay; I'm a beginner and I thought it'd be fun to write my first script, or perhaps one of my first, based on such a wonderful dialogue. Does anyone know of any good newer translations of Plato's Symposium that I could get a hold of at the Barnes and Noble?

@dancinginchains,
I have Plato's complete works, I forget the translator, and the translation of the Symposium is wonderful. I'll check the book tomorrow.

@Aedes,
I recommend John Madison Cooper's translation of the Symposium; I've found it to be most poetic of the translations. You might also want to read Soren Kierkegaard's In Vino Veritas (In Wine, Truth); it's a contemporary version of Plato's Symposium.
