If you follow The Second Achilles on Tumblr you will know that I have begun a daily chapter-by-chapter guide to Plutarch’s Life of Alexander.
The series is an attempt (occasionally successful) to write a short post on each chapter, accompanying each one with images relevant to the text.
Every seven chapters I’ll link to them all here for anyone who would like to read them but without joining Tumblr.
- Prologue/Chapter One Plutarch’s Introduction
- Chapter Two – Alexander’s Ancestry & Parentage
- Chapter Three – Alexander’s Birth
- Chapter Four – Alexander’s Physical Appearance & Character
- Chapter Five – More on Alexander’s Character & his teachers
- Chapter Six – The Calming of Bucephalas
- Chapter Seven – Aristotle
