The cinematic additions make Socrates day in court as visual and audible as it is readable, while incorporating material that would otherwise be footnoted.

The cinematic technique of the novella helps the reader to construct a movie in her or his head - a movie of one of the most renowned defense speeches in history. The cinematic additions are largely based on John Burnets classic 1924 notes and commentary on the Apology and on the the testimonia of courtroom equipment and procedure in The Lawcourts at Athens (The American School of Classical Studies at Athens, 1995).
