Biographies of Alexander the Great

I’m working through some of the recent biographies of Alexander the Great and comparing them to the classical texts and should have a little report soon. It’s been quite enjoyable reading them and trying to sort out the story of his conquests and the lasting effects — for good and for ill — they left on the world. More later.

After Saturday I may diminish my posts until January 3 or 4, as I will be off on the evening of the 25th to a tiny village in Steiermark (Styria) in Austria, where I’ll get in touch with my Alpine side.
