Espartaco, la rebelión de los gladiadores

Henry Jiang rated it liked it Mar 04, Want to Read saving…. Questi due ultimi vengono da Koestler considerati insiti nella natura umana e quindi nucleo dell Bel libro politico, scritto alla fine degli anni trenta da un comunista loestler. It is an ignoble, even ignorant, attitude, but the cynicism of the fat, equally self-indulgent and also deeply unhappy Roman banker-become-general, Marcus Crassus, quite reflects Crixus’ own.

The first of three novels concerned with the ‘ethics of revolution’, it addresses the gladiaadores debate of koeztler the end justifies the means, an argument continued in his classic novels Darkness at Noon and Arrival and Departure.

Es una manera de imaginarse a Espartaco y compararlo con los locos revolucionarios de hoy. Far more enjoyable a read than Darkness at noon. His early career was in journalism. The historical events were sensational enough in their own right.

Now to re-read the next one in the trilogy – Darkness at noon – which I read in college. The army of slaves, eventually growing to more than , survived events such as a siege inside Mount Vesuvius to defeat Roman legions and capture several towns. But it reminded me of how tiny is the number of slaves of whom anything whatever is known.

The Gladiators

These allusions end up seeming anachronistic. Far more enjoyable a read than Darkness at noon.

In a scene of a pre-‘last battle’ interview between Crassus and Spartacus, the latter actually notes even the physical resemblance between the rich man and the proletarian slave-gladiator which of course is a recognition of kindred motivation, the union of ‘eaters’ from ‘above’ and ‘below’, so to speak.

Lists with This Book. A polemic imagining of the Spartacus wars, written fron within the rebels’ camp.

Read this book in the Spanish version published by “Circulo de Lectores” ages ago. Sep 09, Sarah Presto agitato rated it it was ok Shelves: The characterizations are finely drawn, complex and varied, and the novelized history is fascinating.


There is plenty of mayhem in this g,adiadores but essentially it is for those who are willing to ask questions about base human nature and live with the results.

Books by Arthur Koestler. Read this book in the Spanish version published by “Circulo de Lectores” ages ago. Thousands of survivors of the slave army were crucified for miles along the Appian Way. The Gladiators is a philosophical novel focused on Spartacus and his failed uprising. Crixus est sans fond.

Refresh and try again. Lenin’s favorite character in history is said to have been precisely the gladiator of the school in Capua, Spartacus, who emerged as the primary commander of the slave forces; however, the real leader, in Koestler’s novel, is the gladiator without ambition or ideals, ‘the man with the seal’s head’, Crixus. Rome did not take the uprising seriously at first, but eventually was forced to send out armies led by Crassus and Pompey to crush it.

Spartacus, I suppose, is much the most widely known slave there ever was.
