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) warfare ein deutsch-jüdischer Schriftsteller.

Sample text

A master craftsman wanted his subordinates to be obedient as well as skillful, Tom knew from his own experience of being the hirer. Bishop Roger was sketching a two-story building with large windows in three sides. He was a good draftsman, making straight lines and true right angles. He drew a plan and a side view of the building. Tom could see that it would never be built. ” Tom pretended to think he was being asked for his opinion of the drawing. ” The bishop looked at him with irritation. ” John shrugged and turned to Tom.

To his left, the road by which Tom—and presumably the thief—had come to Salisbury, the Portway, curled up over a hill and disappeared. The thief would almost certainly take the Portway. Tom went down the hill and through the cluster of houses at the crossroads, then turned onto the Portway. He needed to hide himself. He walked along the road looking for a suitable spot. He went two hundred yards without finding anything. Looking back, he realized that this was too far: he could no longer see the faces of people at the crossroads, so that he would not know if the man with no lips came along and took the Winchester road.

One of the master builder’s problems was often to calm the fevered imaginations of the clerics and set practical limits to their soaring fantasies. But it would be John of Shaftesbury who hired men. The carter nodded at Tom’s satchel of tools. ” “Yes. ” “You may find it,” the carter said neutrally. ” Of course, Tom thought. He had heard of the powerful Roger of Salisbury, who had been close to the king for as long as anyone could remember. They passed through the gateway into the town. The place was crammed so full of buildings, people and animals that it seemed in danger of bursting its circular ramparts and spilling out into the moat.
