Edward Bysshe translated Xenophone's work in 1702. This translation has continued to have an excellent reputation. In this work, Xenophon discusses the views of life taught by Socrates. His writing is clean and direct. Xenophon does not idealize Socrates, but he feels strongly, and he shows clearly the worth of the wisdom that touches at every point the actual conduct of the lives of men.

Philosopher, Soldier, Historian and Mercenary
I love Xenophon. He is a rare breed: philosopher, soldier, historian and mercenary. I imagine him as a 4th century BC combination of Teddy Roosevelt and William T. Vollmann. Memorabilia is a nice piece to read along with Plato's dialogues. While Plato's remembrances of Socrates are more philosophic and cerebral, Xenophon presents a slightly different and more down to earth picture of the great ethical philosopher.
