" ... Alexander is the protagonist of a large number of works in both prose and verse as well as being the hero of countless folktales. The best known of these books in modern Greece is the Book of Alexander the Great (in Greek, He Phyllada tou Megalexantrou). It was first printed in Venice in 1670, though the earliest surviving copy is from the edition of 1699 ... The standard edition for most of the twentieth century was that of A.A. Pallis (1935) ... His edition was based on a nineteenth-century version; in 1977 a new scholarly edition was prepared by G. Veloudis, and this is now the standard ... The 'Middle Greek' version is the proximate source of the Phyllada, which is written in a simple, folksy form of modern Greek rather than the more elevated style of its predecessors."--Introduction, p. vii-ix

Main description: Unter den verschiedenen Stücken, welche unter dem sogenannten Alexanderroman erscheinen, tritt jene, konzentriert auf die Eroberung von Theben und die dramatische Gegenüberstellung von Alexander und dem Flötisten Ismenias, hervor, wegen der zahlreichen Bezüge auf die Mythologie, wegen der gehobenen Sprache und leider wegen des teilweise verdorbenen Textes. Dieser Band enthält eine neue kritische Edition des Gedichtes, welches weitgehend die alte armenische und syrische Übersetzung benutzt, sowie einen großen Kommentar und eine lange Einleitung, welche unter anderem von den engen Beziehungen dieses rätselhaften Textes mit der Poesie der späten Kaiserzeit handelt
