Alexander in Babylon ist ein historischer Roman von Jakob Wassermann, der 1905 in Berlin erschien. Über den historischen Recherchen zum Roman habe der Autor vier Jahre verbracht. Zur Handlung: Im Frühling des Jahres 324 v. Chr. erreicht Alexander mit den Resten seines Heeres Susa. Alexander hält ein fürchterliches Strafgericht unter Statthaltern, Richtern und Steuerverwaltern ab, die seine lange Abwesenheit in Indien zur Bereicherung ausgenutzt hatten. Unter den Makedoniern in der Truppe Alexanders behauptet ein Soldat, der aus Ekbatana kommt, von dort aus rückten dreißigtausend junge Perser, in makedonische Rüstung eingekleidet und in allen Übungen der Phalanx geschult, an. Die Makedonier fürchten, Alexander vertraue ihnen, seinen Landsleuten, nicht mehr. Phason, einer ihrer Hauptleute, vernimmt das dumpfe Grollen des Aufruhrs. Probleme werden auf der Stelle mit dem Schwert gelöst. Phason tötet den Soldaten, der die Nachricht überbrachte. Alexander heiratet Stateira, Tochter des Dareios. Das Gesicht der Braut ist von einer merkwürdigen bösen Regungslosigkeit. Vielleicht denkt sie an ihre Nebenbuhlerin Roxane, die im Königspalast zu Babylon auf Alexander wartet. Hephästion fängt an der Hochzeitstafel einen einzigen Blick Alexanders auf und meint daraus ablesen zu können: Der König weiß alles über die letzte Verschwörung. Arrhidäos, zwei Jahre jünger als Alexander, ist Sohn des Königs Philipp und einer thessalischen Tänzerin...

Jakob Wassermann (1873-1934) conflict ein deutsch-jüdischer Schriftsteller.

Example text

This little river of ours runs right into a great big river! Just like the song says. Young Sam: That sure is the biggest river I ever did see! My, how all that ice glitters in the moonlight, like it’s twinkling stars. Young Ellie: And over across the ice, on that point of land where the two rivers meet— Young Sam: Why, there’s a big fire burning there. Young Ellie: And there’s a man standing beside it. 33 Young Sam: He’s waving his arms. Do you reckon he’s waving at us? Young Ellie: He sees us in the moonlight.

The men were bigger and heavier than we were. They’d been all bunched up close together. A hole had broken through the ice, and one of the men was in the water. 35 Slave hunter 1: Help! I’ve fallen in! Get me out of here. Old Ellie: We kept moving. By and by, we were climbing up the riverbank. Old Sam: The old man who had waved towered over us in the firelight. He looked out over the ice. Zeke: (chuckling) Look at that poor devil yonder! He’s soaked to the skin in this freezing weather. He’s likely to catch his death of cold.

Young Ellie: He sees us in the moonlight. I think he wants us to come walking across the ice. Young Sam: Do you reckon it’s safe? Young Ellie: It’s got to be. We don’t have a choice. Come on, let’s go. Old Ellie: So we started walking across the ice. Old Sam: It was slippery and cold under our feet. Young Sam: Oh, Ellie—what’s that groaning sound? Young Ellie: That’s the ice creaking under us. Young Sam: Can it hold us? Young Ellie: It ought to. We’re neither one of us much more than skin and bone.
