Alle otto della sera : Alexandros

Description: Raccontare Alessandro è un'impresa impegnativa, per l'enormità dell'impresa del Macedone, per la complessità delle situazioni e dei problemi, per le molte zone d'ombra che si annidano nella sua vicenda. La narrazione comincia dalla nascita del principe, lo segue attraverso le vicende della sua giovinezza, nei giorni drammatici che fecero seguito all'assassinio del padre Filippo, tuttora avvolto nel mistero, e poi nella fulminea campagna in Oriente che a soli 23 anni lo consacrò virtualmente signore del mondo. Si cerca di analizzare la sua personalità così fortemente simboleggiata dal mito dell'occhio nero e dell'occhio azzurro, simboli si può dire della sua duplice natura: barbarica e selvaggia come quella della madre Olympias, razionale e coraggiosa come quella del padre Filippo. E si indugia sull'influsso del grande maestro Aristotele che lo educò per un periodo di quasi tre anni nel ritiro di Mieza.

Alexander: Vid världens ände (Book 3)

Description: Sedan Alexander erövrat Mellanöstern och Egypten vänder han sig nu mot perserkungen Darius kärnländer. En efter en faller Österns mytomspunna städer, Darius dödas av sina egna, Alexander utropas till världshärskare och möter sitt öde i den sköna drottning Roxane. Alexander den store (356-323 f Kr) blev kung vid 20 års ålder sedan hans far Filip av Makedonien mördats. Tre år senare hade han krossat den dåtida supermakten Perserriket och dess härskare Darius. Han var en bildskön yngling, hade en utsökt bildning som givits honom av självaste Aristoteles, och var desutom ett militärt geni. Var det möjligt att han var en vanlig dödlig människa och inte en gud?
