Mportant person in Alexander s life for goodness sake It doesn t matter if they were actually lovers or not He was the only person who loved Alexander as a person And that s why Alexander valued his opinion the most Hephaistion never lied to Alexander if he thought that the king was wrong he said it He was a very brave man capable of doing amazing things People envied and hated him because of Alexander s love and trust for him Even though the nature of their relationship has never been confirmed I believe that the fact that they did truly visit the tomb of Patroclus and Achilles makes the matter uite clear Mary Renault compared them to these two in this novel which is another reason why I can t understand why Hephaistion was so heartbreakingly at least for me absent in this bookAnd Bagoas I HATED HIM I hated him so much that even though the book was well written I just wanted to finish it as uickly as possible He was an annoying whiny useless false lying crybaby I wish I could use Polish swear words to describe him they re so strongP He was just a pretty boy nothing I didn t believe in his love for Alexander In my opinion he was just grateful for being treated so well by his master whom he admired who wouldn t but that would be all I think I m going to remove this book from my mm shelf because I didn t feel the romance at all Bagoas POV was obviously very limited so there were very few moments between the king and Hephaistion and they were the only ones that felt romantic to me To be uite honest Alexander with Colin Farrell was romantic Seriously I was about 11 12 when I watched it and I knew that something was going on between the two All I know is I trust only ou in this world I ve missed Apprendre programmer avec Python 3 you I needou It is Cruising: Historia íntima de un pasatiempo radical (Spanish Edition) you I love Hephaistion No other this line perfectly shows the truth Hephaistion was Alexander s beloved Unfortunately there weren t many moments in The Persian Boy worth mentioning Andou have no idea how sad it makes me This was the most disappointing book I have ever read Not just because of the absence of Hephaistion but also because I didn t learn anything I hadn t known beforeBut I m going to read Fire from Heaven why didn t I read it first ugh and I hope that I ll like it than The Persian Boy because if not I ll never read anything by Mary Renault again I didn t say anything good about this book did I Oops I m just angry and so so disappointed Also why does historical fiction always make me so depressed I really don t have a lot to say about this book It s the first one by Renault that I ve beenhmm not disappointed but perhaps underwhelmed by We continue with the st Every time I pick this book up to read just a passage I find myself getting sucked in again This is my desert island book if I could just bring one with me Every time I read it I could just turn it over and start from the beginning again It s epic and then again it s about a boy s first love There s the sweep of history and then there s very personal humor and heartbreak Seriously Bagoas will rip Poor Percival Stories (Tale 1) your heart out The last line makes me cry I will probably never be able to read Funeral Games it s too upsetting 45 Conuered StarsI drew close and whispered I loveou Alexander and kissed him Never mind I thought from whom his heart accepts it Let it be according to his wish My hair had fallen on his breast His eyes opened his hand moved and touched a strand and ran it between his fingersHe knew me To that I will take my oath before the gods It was to me that he bade farewellDespite enjoying Fire from Heaven I was reluctant to continue with The Persian Boy I assumed it was written in a traditional stilted third person account like the former which took me almost a month to complete it Many months later upon realising that TPB was actually written in a first person account ie Bagoas I picked it up immediately And I was truly enraptured by the brilliance of it Writing from Bagoas perspective has its pros and cons While it makes reading this a lot easier I felt disengaged from it I had wanted to witness Alexander s great conuests like the had wanted to witness Alexander s great conuests like the of Issos Battle of Arbela his Indian campaign and a great many other which I couldn t Remember Because It Was Only Mentioned In because it was only mentioned in After reading David Gemmell s Troy series and realising I uite dig the military tactics and battle strategies I was hoping for that in TPB What makes Alexander so great is him unconuered in battles and being one of the most successful commanders I was disappointed that this significant aspect of his life was not the main focus in TPBThe romantic aspect of TPB was not what I had expected either Written from Bagoas perspective the romantic feeling felt one sided And perhaps it was just that While we witness Bagoas undying love loyalty and devotion towards Alexander we only caught glimpses of his affection towards Bagoas sweet whisperings of nothing It was inferred that Alexander was in love with giving almost to folly That Bagoas was explicitly mentioned in sources as Alexander s eromenos simply puts him above the rest of his common men But Hephaistion is in a class of his ownAt bedtime he would talk to me of Hephaistion as if memory could give him life what they did as boys what he s said of this or that how he trained his dogs Yet I felt something unsaid I felt his eyes when I turned away I knew he was thinking that his taking me had grieved Hephaistion that he should make amends uietly he would put me aside punishing himself not me making his gift to the deadIt was Alexander and Hephaistion s relationship I was craving for The third person account in Fire from Heaven hid no secrets that Hephaistion loved Alexander And even if the love is perhaps unreuited one could bear witness that the former did take up a large portion of his heartAlexander was lying flat on his back staring upward Suddenly he grasped Hephaistion in an embrace so fierce that it knocked the breath out of him and said Without Britannicus you I should go madI too withoutou said Hephaistion with loving ardorAlexander did in fact went delirious shortly after Hephaistion s death the exuberant funeral pyre the public mourning the attempt at raising Hephaistion to be a god However since this was in Bagoas perspective one could not witness the intense pain Alexander felt at the death of his beloved Again I was robbed off this But Alexander he had thought in Greek He would ask the oracle for Hephaistion to be a god They will mock him I thought they will mock him Then I remembered he is a deity himself already Ammon acknowledged him Without Hephaistion he cannot bear even immortalityMy chatting with Alicja led to a better understanding of Renault s purpose of writing TPB in Bagoas pov Renault did focus on his major conuest of the Persian Empire just not the way one expects it to be And Bagoas represented that Through his point of view we see the boy in Alexander his innocence in discovering the marvels of the world Before learning about his life I had thought that his conuests were merely to uench his thirst for power to be the King above all Kings the Great King When we were up in the hills he took me for an early ride to taste as he said the clean air of Persia once again I breathed it and said Al skander we are home Truly I too He looked towards the folded ranges whose peaks had had the first snowfalls I d say this only to Swapping Lives you shut it inour heart Macedon was my father s country This is mineHis determination to establish a Persianate society among ALL his people adopting the elements of the Persian dress the prostration the massive dowries for the mass marriage of his Macedonian senior officers to Persian noblewomen one could infer that Alexander has a strong attachment to Persia To promulgate his desperate attempts at marrying these two cultures together it is imperative that this aspect of his life be told from Bagoas perspectiveConclusion This is the third time I m mentally sobbing in public over the death of my favourite hero while commuting to work I was trying to pass off my sniffles for sinusitis I know it was coming But Renault s lyrical writing just destroyed me. Plots the demands of two foreign wives a sometimes mutinous army and his own ferocious temper After Alexander’s mysterious death we are left wondering if this Persian boy understood the great warrior and his ambitions better than anyon. ,
D myself too emotionally invested in Alexander s dreams to find the idea of watching them all burn away in an orgy of destruction and civil war anything but painful And I love the casual backstabbery of the successor warsI cannot recommend this book highly enough It s one of the best historical novels I have ever read And while I don t believe it captures the real Alexander the one it does present is so fully realized and compelling that I truly wish it was so Splendid I savored every page Bagoas s devotion to his lord and his understanding of the warrior he lay with every night his deep love for Alexander and respect for this flawed but incredible man moved and inspired meThe tale is epic The journey is unforgettable The excitement and exotic landscapes are beautifully rendered the history and romance coming together like Macedonia and PersiaThe last few chapters from Hephaistion s death and on are worth the whole sweeping bookIn Hades world will Patrocles finally allow The Persian Boy to continue to love his AchillesWhat a tale that could be When I started this book I was unaware that it was part 2 in a trilogy about the life of Alexander the Great I just saw it on some best LGBT literature list and bought it This 1972 book spans the life of Alexander from the age of 26 until his death and is written from the POV of Bagoas a eunuch and courtier that really existed According to wikipedia Bagoas won a dancing contest after the Macedonian crossing of the Gedrosian Desert The Macedonian troops with whom Bagoas was very popular demanded that king Alexander should kiss Bagoas and he did so Well in this book they do than kiss Bagoas falls head over heels with for Alexander and Alexander reciprocates even though the true love of his life is clearly his best friend Hephaestion Strangely this dramatic dynamic is only scarcely touched upon Bagoas is jealous but mostly Hephaestion is talked about in passing Even his death and Alexander going crazy from it also canonically true apparently is dealt with pretty uickly Which I thought was a missed opportunity I didn t really like Bagoas much and I m also not sure what Alexander saw in him beside a pretty and exotic boy But I did like seeing Alexander through Bagoas eyes The middle part of the book was a bit slow It was mostly about war and cultural clashes between Macedonians and Persians and while I learnt some new things I almost interested in the characters If I wanted to complain about something it would be that I wanted personal depth even Alexander of whom men tell many legends lived by his own Achilles must have Patroklos He might love his Briseis but Patroklos was the friend till death At their tombs in Troy Alexander and Hephaistion had sacrificed together Wound Patroklos and Achilles will have Strange Flesh your blood The book made me think of the modern The song of Achilles not just because Achilles and Patroclus relationship is referenced a lot in this book Alexander and Hephaestion both compared themselves to them whicheah no wonder people thought they were than just best friends but because of the similar Old Gay Greece Literature theme Well I didn t really like The Song of Achilles I thought the writing was very YA This here however is literature It s dense and it took me hours than usual to get through the 400 pages but it was really worth it I definitely want to read the first and the third part of the trilogy now No wonder this book is still revered It still feels fresh and relevant Maybe the timeless Old Greece topic helps but mostly the writing is just really good I doubt he d ever in his life lain down with anyone for whom he had not felt some kind of fondness He needed love as a palm tree needs water all his life long from armies from cities from conuered enemies nothing was enough It laid him open to false friends as anyone will tell ou Well for all that no man is made a god when he is dead and can do no harm without love He needed love and never forgave its betrayal which he had no understanding of For he himself if it was given him with a whole heart never misused it nor despised the giver He took it gratefully and felt bound by it I USED TO THINK I DESPISED LOVE STORIES I used to think I despised love stories I wonder what was wrong with me love stories are supposed to move us I would think They re supposed to make us feel things other stories cannot So I thought But all the love stories I saw were the unbelievable kind The ridiculous caricatures on display in romantic comedies the happily ever afters we were fed in fairy tales Where was the pain I would ask Where was the suffering and the longing And perhaps above all do these characters being in love provide us with anything Because of the love are we gleaning any additional information about the people the world or even the metaphysical It was a long time before I realized that the type of love stories I wanted to hear were out there and when I eventually heard them they were powerful indeed At its heart The Persian Boy is a love story and it too is indeed a powerful one This book is Mary Renault s second voyage into the life of Alexander the Great and takes place historically from when he becomes king of Macedon to his untimely death Mary Renault takes an interesting approach to telling this story however and the entire book is written from the point of view of Bagoas The Persian Boy Bagoas was an actual historical figure he was a eunuch and catamite who was originally possessed by Darius III emperor of Persia When Darius was no longer in the picture Bagoas became attached to Alexander instead and by all reasonable accounts it was a close and loving relationship Because the book is from one specific angle it is by its nature limiting et at the same time it allows a remarkable amount of depth Where Fire From Heaven is a event driven book The Persian Boy is much focused on the personal aspect of those involved Bagoas wasn t a warrior so many of the battles of Alexander s campaign are glossed over Instead we get the "Smaller But Eually Important Insights Into The Impact Those Battles "but eually important insights into the impact those battles on the people particularly Alexander Make no mistake even though this book is from the point of view of Bagoas it is about Alexander If this were some other historical novel by some other writer we would get action troop movements and gore And while those can be respectable things in their own right this book gives us the gift of emotions psychology and subtle philosophy Bagoas is an extremely tortured individual Because of his training he exudes a calm and tranuil exterior but on the inside he is torn apart by a whirlwind of different emotions as he realizes Alexander is a man greater than he he must be shared with others and with his own destiny As beautiful as a dancing flame is to grasp at it too tightly will burn the hand The themes in the book have no problem jumping out at the reader The difference between true love and simple desire honor and perfidy courage and cowardice are all explored at great length it s very Greek in that respectAlexander has often been compared to Achilles and Mary Renault has no problem running with that comparison in a lot of her passages His passion for glory his bravery and his relationship with Hephaestion Alexander s childhood friend and Patroklos like figure And When He was Wicked yes his self knowing hubris is inevitably a demon to deal with as well While Fire From Heaven was a stirring book painting a broad picture of Alexander s life and getting the chest muscles moving The Persian Boy is ultimately a heart wrenching book that gets the chest muscles imploding Can there be love without loss and pain Desire and jealously while still maintaining integrity What does it mean to be a great man and who exactly deserves to be remembered by history The Persian Boy is a small piece of a grand epic that we can never fully know but it is still epic in and of itself In the tradition of the Greek pursuit of glory and excellence this book shines brightly in its own success After thinking about this book I had to change the rating The lack of my perfect Hephaistion ruined the book for me He was the most R Bagoas Abducted and gelded as a boy Bagoas was sold as a courtesan to King Darius of Persia but found freedom with Alexander after the Macedon army conuered his homeland Their relationship sustains Alexander as he weathers assassination. The Persian Boy Alexander the Great 1 Mary RenaultThe Persian Boy is a 1972 historical novel written by Mary Renault and narrated by Bagoas aoung Persian from an aristocratic family who is captured by his father s enemies castrated and sold as a slave to the king Darius III who makes him his favorite Eventually he becomes the lover and most faithful servant of Alexander the Great who overthrew Darius and captured the Persian Empire Bagoas narration provides both a Persian view of the conuest and an intimate look at the personality of the conueror In Renault s view Alexander s love for Bagoas influenced his desire to unite the Greek and Persian peoples Renault also posits the notion that Alexander s relentless drive to conuer the world stemmed in part from his troubled relationship with his domineering mother and his desire to escape from her influence by leading his army ever eastward 2004 1369 9643110249 651 1373 20 1388 9789646325630 564 1972 The Persian Boy follows on from Fire From Heaven and takes us to the heart of Alexander s life story his travels and conuests of the Persian empire as Macedonian kingThe first thing I noted straight away was that The Persian Boy has a different feel from Fire From Heaven Fire From H This book is a marvel the first part especially so I can t understand how but it manages to combine the most appalling crimes imaginable oung Bagoas is enslaved castrated pimped out and gradually turned into the king s sex toy with a feeling of comfort and tradition You feel Bagoas love for Persia even as he passes through the worst bits of it By the time Darius falls ou feel regret for the ruin of this once promising king and the ending of a mighty empire Again this is the man who s been regularly raping his child sex slave For which Bagoas feels little or no judgement and even demonstrates loyalty for rescuing from his earlier and wretched life as essentially a boy whore How the hell do A Spark of Light you manage to pull that off and have it workThe book continues in its excellence once we get to Alexander about a third of the way in but here the emotional core is less unnerving Alexander takes Bagoas as a lover but only because he has come as a willing freeman and not as a slave doing his duty After the horror of the first chapters traces his somewhat resigned acceptance of his lack of personhood the second part is about Bagoas recovering himself Having been no one for threeears he now has to confront all his longings and dreams and try to figure out how to achieve them Bagoas journey is at the emotional heart of the book Les changements terrestres et la connexion anthropocosmique: L'histoire secrete du monde - Tome 3 yet he never truly does anything to affect the outcome other than being unuestioningly loyal to Alexander It s another hard balance to pull off how to make the drama of Alexander s push to India interesting despite the lead s lack of involvement Needless to say she manages it While I did find myself a bit tired of his endless Bactrian conflicts by the end I imagine Alexander felt the same it never lost my interest It s here that I realized how clever the focus on Bagoas love story really was for it provides a sense of progression that the repetitive notes of citadels reduced and tribes rebelling could never manage One only has to look at the film Alexander to see how easy a trap this is to fall intoTo enter the mind of Bagoas is fascinating His is the mindset of a genuine slave though he s not born to it Kidnapped at ten when his father remains loyal to the wrong man in the shifting treacheries of the Persian courtou can see his free will slowly vanish as his life becomes less and less endurable until being chosen for the great king s bed and the luxury of life in the palace is seen as a great gift An abrogation of any sense of self is the only way to deal with a life entirely in the hands of others Since childhood he has never had the luxury of choice being traded from one master to another and obeying them absolutely Indeed his realization upon Darius death that he has the ability to chose his future is met with a combination of exhilaration and terror Yet he remains at heart possessed of those old Persian virtues to serve with honor and always tell the truthI really like Bagoas as a POV character but I have to feel I d mistrust him from the outside Every word he says is calculated Years of service as a slave and in the royal court have conditioned him to never speak without carefully weighing the cost Any time he does reveal a confidence it s like a dagger in its precision His love for Alexander is also fierce and rather frightening in its intensity Remember that first crush Unbeueme Baudenkmale Entsorgen? Schutzen? Pflegen? you had Whereou thought that if they didn t return False Arrest True Story of Kidnapping Contract Murder Police Corruption and Innocence your loveou would just diieeeeeeee Bagoas is like that At one point he even contemplates the murder of his rival Hephaestion And while he does get better with time he remains a man with no life outside of Alexander To some degree he never really recovers the sense of identity that was stolen from him as a child but clings to others instead I do see in him something of a character type that was likely common in the secretive underground gay community of which Renault was a part The sort of boy who d managed to work his way into the bed of a married lover and now finds himself spitting blood at the thought of having to share him with his wife but unable to speak up because he knows he d be the loser That she makes this sympathetic is due to her skill but it would take nothing than a little push to send it over the edgeThe really thrilling part of this book for me is that it s basically the only attempt I know of to understand what life was like for a Persian in Persia I ve seen a few books set in Persia but they all seem to choose Greeks as protagonists I m thinking of The Dragon of the Ishtar Gate Memnon The Falcon of Sparta Creation at least has a Persian protagonist though it spends most of its time in Greece and India and The Last King of Lydia focuses on Croesus and his eventual submission and service to Cyrus These aren t all bad books but as the sum total of Persian historical fiction they suck None of them really shows us what life was like in the heart of Persia an empire I love in all its various incarnations The closest ou can come to experiencing that is in works of Fantasy such as The Stolen Throne set in Makuran an analogue for mainly Sassanian 6th7th century AD Persia and the Japanese Heroic Legend of Arslan set in Pars they re not even trying which is mostly a life of Cyrus the Great 600 530 BC mixed with plenty of details from other eras Honestly it sucks that ou have to go so far afield to find books capturing life in Persia and for managing that alone even if nothing else I would have to praise Mary RenaultI honestly can t believe that this book has managed the reputation and success it did I know the 70s were all about promiscuous outh culture but homosexuality was still widely despised even among hippies And I have not generally thought Classicists with all the deep conservatism that name implies and those who enjoy their works would have been the first to join in the winds of change Yet this book is a full on gay romance with no apologies and no cushioning other than the fact that the is a full on gay romance with no apologies and no cushioning other than the fact that the sex is only described in the most vague of terms Having read at least one other gay romance set in the Classical era Child of the Sun I have to say that we could not be fortunate to have the work of Mary Renault to hold up as a banner for how these stories ought to be doneEven if that s not a concept that interests ou and honestly I don t generally care much for historical romances gay or straight the book does a wonderful job of exploring the life and nature of Alexander Renault s gay or straight the book does a wonderful job of exploring the life and nature of Alexander Renault s too in love with him to give us a fair impression of the man but her romantic figure striding us a fair impression of the man but her romantic figure striding adversity seeking to unite the world in one brotherhood of man is far wonderful to read than the truth could ever be By the end of the book DISPARITIONS you fall in love with him too and his death though inevitable hits hard I had actually intended to read her seuel Funeral Games immediately after finishing this one but I foun. “It takes skill to depict as Miss Renault has done this half man half Courtesan who is so deeply in love with the warrior”– The Atlantic MonthlyThe Persian Boy traces the lastears of Alexander’s life through the eyes of his love.
