Three brilliant novels resurrecting one of history's most mesmerising figures - Alexander the Great. Daniel Mendelsohn, New Yorker columnist introduces the first illustrated edition. Few historical novelists have ever rivalled the achievements of Mary Renault. Between 1969 and 1981, in three brilliant novels, she resurrected one of history's most mesmerising figures: Alexander the Great. The Alexander Trilogy tells his extraordinary story, from his childhood in a 'savage' backwater of Greece to his conquest of the known world and the splintering of his empire after his premature death. In these novels Renault does for ancient Greece what Patrick O'Brian did for the Napoleonic era.
