Ciropedia (Biblioteca Clásica Gredos) (Spanish Edition) by Jenofonte,Ana Vegas Sansalvador,Carlos García Gual

By Jenofonte,Ana Vegas Sansalvador,Carlos García Gual

Jenofonte compone una imagen idealizada de Ciro el Grande, rey de Persia, con una intención didáctica y moralizante: mostrar en qué consiste y cómo se forma el gobernante virtuoso. En ello se advierte, como en Platón, el magisterio de Sócrates, maestro de ambos.
Hijo de una Atenas que iba perdiendo su antiguo esplendor, Jenofonte (h. 430-354 a.C.) es uno de los mejores prosistas áticos y un muy lúcido testigo de su época. Aventurero y escritor, discípulo de Sócrates, apasionado de l. a. historia, los angeles educación, los angeles equitación y l. a. caza, trató todos estos intereses particulares en sus diversas obras. l. a. Ciropedia («educación de Ciro») es una suerte de novela de formación protagonizada por Ciro el grande, rey de Persia, de intención ethical y didáctica, en el que Jenofonte se propone componer un «espejo de príncipes». Para ello crea un personaje idealizado, el perfecto estadista, gobernante y common, de hábitos un tanto espartanos y awesome magnanimidad. Con ello el autor pone de manifiesto l. a. influencia del magisterio de Sócrates, de quien fue discípulo, en su concepción de l. a. educación para l. a. virtud, l. a. areté (concepción análoga a los angeles que Platón argumentó en los angeles República, escrita en los angeles misma época). En su exposición del modelo, Jenofonte describe los angeles constitución y el sistema educativo de Persia, preceptos y tácticas militares, y todo cuanto contribuye a l. a. formación de un gran gobernante.
Jenofonte supo amenizar su tratado ejemplarizante con una variada colección de recursos narrativos (cuento renowned, biografía y romance), que se combinan con los angeles narración política y militar.
