143 Eck, Bernard LA MORT ROUGE Homicide, Guerre Et Souillure En Grèce Ancienne
Les Belles Lettres 2012 2251326820 / 9782251326825 Softcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Softcover is fine with very light shelfwear to DJ. ; Collection D'Études Anciennes 145. Série Grecque; 448 pages; Tuer quelqu'un, ou l'absolue transgression : l'Antiquité grecque, une fois de plus, nous parle. > Le parricide Oreste subit les assauts des impitoyables Érinyes. Dans la plaine de Troie, Achille et Hector, tueurs héroïques, sont portés par un instinct de mort qui a nom Arès. Aux rives de la mer Noire, vers 400 avant J. -C. , les rescapés de l'armée des Dix Mille prennent part à une mystérieuse cérémonie de purification. Ailleurs, l'orateur Antiphon agite une étrange croyance : la souillure de l'homicide se répandrait partout, le fantôme de la victime criant vengeance. Et, dans un coin de la Sicile, la magie de rituels curieux chasserait les démons du meurtre. L'Athènes démocratique, inventive, n'est pas en reste ; ici, elle laisse s'exiler l'assassin, s'il le veut, avant même la fin de son procès ; là, elle promulgue une loi encourageant l'assassinat de quelque apprenti tyran qui menacerait son existence. Mais Aristote met en garde : l'homicide constitue en toute circonstance, sans exception, une faute. > Littérature, histoire, droit, philosophie, anthropologie contribuent à cette étude approfondie des représentations, lato sensu, de la mort violente chez les Grecs. Le tableau d'ensemble est, pourrait-on dire, versicolore. Versicolores, aussi, les paroles ailées de l'immortel Homère, pour l'instant fatal où le guerrier s'effondre : > "La mort rouge et le puissant destin se sont emparés de ses yeux". Versicolores, aussi, les paroles ailées de l'immortel Homère, pour l'instant fatal où le guerrier s'effondre : > "La mort rouge et le puissant destin se sont emparés de ses yeux".

Pages lightly browned. General shelfwear. ; Omega Books; 568 pages; Tough, resolute, fearless, Alexander was a born warrior and ruler of passionate ambition who understood the intense adventure of conquest and of the unknown. When he died in 323 BC aged thirty-two, his vast empire comprised more than two million square miles, spanning from Greece to India. His achievements were unparalleled - he had excelled as leader to his men, founded eighteen new cities and stamped the face of Greek culture on the ancient East. The myth he created is as potent today as it was in the ancient world. Robin Lane Fox's superb account searches through the mass of conflicting evidence and legend to focus on Alexander as a man of his own time. Combining historical scholarship and acute psychological insight, it brings this colossal figure vividly to life.
