Plutarch's Life of Alexander - Blackie's English Text

£6.99

Product description

In 336 b.c. Philip of Macedonia was assassinated and his twenty-year-old son, Alexander, inherited his kingdom. Immediately quelling rebellion, Alexander extended his father s empire through-out the Middle East and into parts of Asia, fulfilling the soothsayer Aristander s prediction that the new king should perform acts so important and glorious as would make the poets and musicians of future ages labour and sweat to describe and celebrate him. The Life of Alexander the Great is one of the first surviving attempts to memorialize the achievements of this legendary king, remembered today as the greatest military genius of all time. 
This edition, in the series Highways and Byways of English Literature, was published in paperback
