Do the 'classics' still have relevance at the start of the 21st century? Or are they just an outdated repository of pedantic obscurantism, rooted in abstruse texts and concerned almost entirely with the activities of dead white males? In this wise and witty work, Frederic Raphael springs to the defence of a much-maligned but bracingly elitist world. An erudite, wide-ranging, fluent and original piece of writing, Some Talk of Alexander leads the reader from the personal experiences of the author in modern Greece into the rich store of Greek civilisation: its art, politics, philosophy, warfare, ethics, personal relationships, government, literature and much much more. A captivating personal journey through history.
