ARRIAN ANABASIS PDF

When I began this Translation, more than two years ago, I had no intention of publishing it; but as the work progressed, it occurred to me that Arrian is an Author deserving of more attention from the English speaking races than he has yet received. No edition of his works has, so far as I am aware, ever appeared in England, though on the Continent many have been published. In the following Translation I have tried to give as literal a rendering of the Greek text as I could without transgressing the idioms of our own language. My theory of the duty of a Translator is, to give the ipsissima verba of his Author as nearly as possible, and not put into his mouth words which he never used, under the mistaken notion of improving his diction or his way of stating his case.

The Anabasis is by far the fullest surviving account of Alexander 's conquest of the Persian empire. It is primarily a military history, reflecting the content of Arrian's model, Xenophon's Anabasis ; the work begins with Alexander's accession to the Macedonian throne in BC, and has nothing to say about Alexander's early life in contrast, say, to Plutarch 's Life of Alexander. Nor does Arrian aim to provide a complete history of the Greek-speaking world during Alexander's reign. Arrian's chief sources in writing the Anabasis were the lost contemporary histories of the campaign by Ptolemy and Aristobulus and, for his later books, Nearchus. The Anabasis gives a broadly chronological account of the reign of Alexander the Great of Macedon — BC , with a particular focus on military matters. After a short Preface concerning Arrian's sources, Book 1 covers the early years of Alexander's reign — BC , including notable descriptions of Alexander's sack of Thebes in and the battle of the Granicus in summer BC. Book 2 is dominated by three large set-piece military operations: the campaign and battle of Issus BC and the sieges of Tyre and Gaza BC.

It is a comparatively easy thing to give a paraphrase of a foreign work, presenting the general drift of the original; but no one, unless he has himself tried it, can understand the difficulty of translating a classical Author correctly without omission or mutilation.
