if he does not mind, let us talk no more of poems and verses, but
consider the points on which I questioned you at first, Protagoras,
and on which I should be glad to reach, with your help, a conclusion.
For it seems
to me that arguing about poetry
is comparable to the
wine-parties of common market-folk. These people,
owing to their inability to carry on a familiar conversation over
their wine by means
of their own voices and discussions

price, and carry on their intercourse by means of its utterance.
