Un homme sous un porche s'abritait
Et il a crié ton nom Barbara

Et tu as couru vers lui sous la pluie
Ruisselante, ravie épanouie

Et tu t'es jetée dans ses bras
Rappelle-toi cela Barbara...

Laurent Gaudé : Pour seul cortège

A la fin d'un ultime banquet, Alexandre le Grand s'effondre, terrassé par la fièvre. Il est mourant. Fidèles et généraux se pressent autour de lui. dans la douloureuse inquiétude de la succession et de la pérennité de l'empire.
Alexandre, le plus grand des conquérants, assoiffé de puissance et de terre se transforme sous nos yeux en un être humain foudroyé par la maladie. Mais le temps d'un récit digne d'une tragédie grecque, il redevient  le meneur d'hommes, le combattant mythique que l'Histoire connaît.
Babylone déroule ses fastes et excès, délices et barbarie, cruauté et soif de pouvoir. Toute la noirceur de l'homme apparaît et malgré le lyrisme persistant, la fureur ne quitte pas la scène.
Alexandre fait entendre sa voix, insuffle sa grandeur et traverse le temps.
A travers le récit d'une femme, princesse tragique, et de quelques proches, nous accompagnons le cercueil d'Alexandre dans son dernier voyage. Le cortège de pleureuses donne à cette marche initiatique dans le désert la force du rêve.
Alexandre n'était pas assez vaste pour lui et il habite l'éternité à jamais, son ombre plane sur les déserts de l'Orient et son histoire devient une légende.
Laurent Gaudé mêle récit, vérité, rêve dans une prose riche très visuelle. Le désert et la chaleur nous enveloppent et le temps reste suspendu. 
Un petit livre qui n'apporte pas de précisions historiques mais  questionne sur la vie d'un homme d'une intelligence politique féroce qui a su imposer la Macédoine en tant que royaume glorieux.
Le style très lyrique, les voix entrecroisées dans le rêve ou la réalité peuvent dérouter mais il faut se laisser porter par le récit et par la voix d'outre-tombe du grand Alexandre.

May I simply say what a comfort to find an individual who actually understands what they're discussing on the net. You actually know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people should look at this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you are not more popular given that you definitely possess the gift.
