Of all the generals in the ancient world, none matches the accomplishments of Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, and Hannibal of Carthage. This audiobook will look at the lives and leadership styles of these three commanders. Alexander conquered the fullest expanse of the known world and brought Europe and Asia under one sovereign. Julius Caesar was a master statesmen, capable of translating military victory into long-term political gains. His vanquishing of the Gauls and his political opponents laid the groundwork for several centuries of Roman imperial might.

Much like the fencer who must constantly read and respond to her opponent´s tactics during a fencing bout, this debut collection by Mary Jean Chan deftly examines relationships at once conflictual and tender. Flèche (the French word for ´arrow´) is an offensive technique commonly used in épée, a competitive sport of the poet´s teenage and young adult years. This cross-linguistic pun presents the queer, non-white body as both vulnerable (´flesh´) and weaponised (´ flèche ´) in public and private spaces. Themes of multilingualism, queerness, post-colonialism, psychoanalysis and cultural history emerge by means of an imagined personal, maternal and national biography, spoken by a polyphony of female voices. The result is a series of poems that are urgent and hard-hitting as Chan keeps her readers on their toes, dazzling and devastating them by turn.
