A legend in his own lifetime, Alexander the Great continued to inspire a fertile and entertaining tradition of European, Jewish and Arabic folklore until the 15th century. Stoneman's selection presents five texts describing adventures such as Alexander's encounters with monstrous animals, his voyage up the Ganges, his debates with Brahman sages and the journey to Paradise. This revised edition features a substantial new introduction, and an appendix brings together seven early English versions of Alexander-legends.
