    Summary

    They say, then and later, that madness and magic come in the month of Boedromion. The sea cooks and boils. The air singes and curls. In the nights, gods walk the earth beside men. The fair-haired goddess, laughter-loving Aphrodite, comes to her then, sitting in the courtyard, weaving with her hands as her mind flies free.

    Summary

    My subject in this tale is the life of Alexander the King. The career of this man embraced such a multitude of events that my preamble shall consist of nothing more than this one plea: if I do not record all his most celebrated achievements that you not regard this as a fault. Plutarch, Life of Alexander

    Alexander at the tomb of Achilles: Oh fortunate youth, to have found Homer as the herald of your glory! Cicero, Pro Archia

    With love and undying fame at stake, Alexander takes matters into his own hands.

    Summary

    When old age shall this generation waste,
    Thou shalt remain, in midst of other woe

    'Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all
    Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.'

    Plato's Symposium has a few holes in it.
