A significant contribution in the formation of 20th-century German literature, this historical fantasy takes Alexander the Great for its subject, looking at his life and career, and examining his obsession with conquest and supremacy regardless of its effects on his friends and lovers. A novel that explores Klaus Mann���s ambiguous sexuality, it was written in 1920s Germany in the aftermath of World War I and can also be viewed as a fascinating study of power with highly political connotations.
