Lucian's Dialogues Volume 3: The Dialogues of the Dead

1 - Dialogue I. Diogenes commissions Polydeukes, about to return to the upper world, to inform Menippus of the actual condition of things in the land of shades, and to deliver admonitory messages to various sorts of men-the rich, the powerful, the proud; and, finally, to the poor, whom, when they complain of their lot on Earth, he is to console by representing the complete equality which prevails in the regions of the dead.
