Alexander in Babylon ist ein historischer Roman von Jakob Wassermann, der 1905 in Berlin erschien. Über den historischen Recherchen zum Roman habe der Autor vier Jahre verbracht. Zur Handlung: Im Frühling des Jahres 324 v. Chr. erreicht Alexander mit den Resten seines Heeres Susa. Alexander hält ein fürchterliches Strafgericht unter Statthaltern, Richtern und Steuerverwaltern ab, die seine lange Abwesenheit in Indien zur Bereicherung ausgenutzt hatten. Unter den Makedoniern in der Truppe Alexanders behauptet ein Soldat, der aus Ekbatana kommt, von dort aus rückten dreißigtausend junge Perser, in makedonische Rüstung eingekleidet und in allen Übungen der Phalanx geschult, an. Die Makedonier fürchten, Alexander vertraue ihnen, seinen Landsleuten, nicht mehr. Phason, einer ihrer Hauptleute, vernimmt das dumpfe Grollen des Aufruhrs. Probleme werden auf der Stelle mit dem Schwert gelöst. Phason tötet den Soldaten, der die Nachricht überbrachte. Alexander heiratet Stateira, Tochter des Dareios. Das Gesicht der Braut ist von einer merkwürdigen bösen Regungslosigkeit. Vielleicht denkt sie an ihre Nebenbuhlerin Roxane, die im Königspalast zu Babylon auf Alexander wartet. Hephästion fängt an der Hochzeitstafel einen einzigen Blick Alexanders auf und meint daraus ablesen zu können: Der König weiß alles über die letzte Verschwörung. Arrhidäos, zwei Jahre jünger als Alexander, ist Sohn des Königs Philipp und einer thessalischen Tänzerin...

With a forged of slaves, traditional Roman humans, exiles and entertainers, it's thorough in its ancient interpretation and in its selection to make the earlier obtainable and readable.

Written in 1938-9, the unconventional includes many symbolic parallels to the increase of ecu fascism within the Thirties and the determined plight of persecuted minorities comparable to the Jews and the left-wing activists with whom Naomi Mitchison for my part campaigned on the time.

The Blood of the Martyrs is the least autobiographical of Mitchison’s significant works of fiction, but, with its implicit credo, is her such a lot passionately self-revealing.

Example text

I mean it's not that old thing again, is it, when people asked why men climbed Mount Everest and they said, “Because it's there”? I never understood. ' Five minutes, he thought. Time ticking . . his wrist-watch . . a wheel in a wheel . . little wheel run by . . big wheel run by . . way in the middle of . . four minutes! the men snug in the rocket by now, the hive, the control board lit like Christmas morning. . His lips moved. 'All I know is it's really the end of the beginning.

It was white as the whitest vanilla ice-cream, as the bottled milk in tenement halls at dawn. White as a winter cloud all alone in the moonlit sky late at night. Seeing it here in the warm summer night room made their breath almost show on the air. Shutting his eyes, he could see it printed on his lids. He knew what colour his dreams would be this night.
