schema:description"What are ancient texts saving to us when they describe Alexander the Great's romantic relationship with his wife Barsine, or comment on his homosexual relationship with Hephaestion? What did it mean when the ancient writers told that Alexander had been sired by a thunderbolt or by a gigantic snake? What did it mean when they represented his mother Olympias as a witch? These are some of the questions addressed in Alexander the Great: Myth, Genesis and Sexuality. In Ins latest book, Daniel Ogden discusses the mythologizing of procreation and sex in the ancient traditions surrounding Alexander. --Book Jacket."
