The Real Apology of Socrates was written in 1931 by the Modern Greek poet and satirist Kostas Varnales. As the title suggests, the theme is the trial of the philosopher Socrates by the Athenians in 399 B.C. Written in response to the fascist movements of the time, The Real Apology of Socrates presents a scathing attack on the political, social and religious institutions of 'Modern' Greece as seen through the sarcastic and often damning eyes of Socrates. In a surprising turn of events, Socrates reluctantly admits his guilt and accepts his fate. A classicist and avowed communist, Varnales brilliantly evokes the atmosphere of Classical Athens by skillfully weaving it with aspects of his own time. This work is as pertinent today as it was when Varnales wrote it, and will appeal equally to students of classical history and political activists alike.
