"When Kleon heard the news from Capua he rose early one morning, being a literatus and unchained, crept to the room of his Master, stabbed him in the throat, mutilated that Master's body even as his own had been mutilated: and so fled from Rome with a stained dagger in his sleeve and a copy of Plato's Republic hidden in his breast." I could go on about why I love this book, but why? The opening line has it all. If that opening doesn't thrill you the way it did me, doesn't make you have to read t [...]
The Spartacus legend has been re-told many times by everyone from Stanley Kubrick (in 1960, with Kirk Douglas as the unlikely Thracian hero) to more recent accounts by Ben Kane (2012) and the strangely compelling ‘Starz’ cable TV version (with Australian actor Liam McIntyre, on 'location' in New Zealand). It is refreshing, therefore, to return to the original 1933 novel by Scottish author James Leslie Mitchell under his pen name of Lewis Grassic Gibbon.Fast-paced, the original Spartacus nove [...]
Well worth the read if you are a Spartacus fan. The style of writing for me was a little hard to follow but the story builds up nicely and I really enjoyed reading it. I advise anyone who starts to read this book to keep going and finish it, it's well worth it
Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s Spartacus may be your grandfather’s Spartacus, but is not likely your father’s or Kirk Douglas’ Spartacus from his 1960 motion picture. In a bit of prophecy from the final chapter, Gibbon, through the voice of Kleon, one of the slave commanders, said,“As this story will grow, dim and confused, in the ages to be, the story of the slaves’ insurrection. They’ll mix the marches and forget our names, and make of Grannicus a loyal hero and of Gershom…a strayed Ga [...]
Lewis Grassic Gibbon's (LGG) Spartacus is one of several novels that tell the story of the gladiator turned revolutionary.The novel has obvious socialist overtones with the slaves in revolts against their masters. Interestingly LGG tried unsuccessfully to join the British Communist Party. The Hollywood movie Spartacus was based on the novel by Howard Fast. Fast finished his book in 1951 but because he was a member of the USA Communist Party until 1956, Hollywood producers did not feel confident [...]
I liked this one better than Howard Fast's (I thought his portrayals of Crassus and Cicero were way off). It's told more from the viewpoints of the people around Spartacus than from his. It starts with a Greek eunuch killing his master and running off to join Spartacus' band - he's one of the characters who keeps reappearing. There's also a Jewish general who fought in Judea, and was captured and sold into slavery in Syria. Spartacus himself is kind of boring when we finally meet him. Once in a [...]
Recent viewing of the movie Trumbo reminded me that I read Spartacus, the novel, in high school a couple of years before I saw the Kirk Douglas movie. I remember being uncertain at the time whether this leader of a slave revolt was a real, historical figure or whether this was entirely fictional character placed in a historic setting.
Nasty and brutish portrayal of the slave revolt.No one comes out of this tale particulary shiny, it is not some kind of hagiography on Spartacus which I initially thought it might be considering Gibbon's politics.In this there are (to quote the McNeill song) "no gods and precious few heroes".
very well written, Great read.
I really wanted to like this. The description talks about how great it is but I found it unreadable. Hard to follow and not well written, in my opinion.
grrrrrrrr. it was hard to get into but what you did get into was very interseting
Amazing historical novel in the same genre as Ben Hur or the ten commandments. I loved it
