Lebendig und geradezu romanhaft schildert Curtius Rufus den Feldzug Alexanders des Großen. Besonders eindringlich verfolgt er dessen Entwicklung vom kameradschaftlichen Heerführer hin zum orientalischen Despoten. Anekdoten zu fremdländischen Sitten und Beobachtungen zu Besonderheiten aus Natur und Geographie finden sich in dem Werk genauso wie dramatische Schilderungen, wenn etwa Alexanders Soldaten durch die Wüste marschieren, bis sie halb verdurstet den Fluss Oxus erreichen, oder wenn sie gegen die Kriegselefanten des indischen Königs Poros ankämpfen: All dies macht die »Historiae Alexandri Magni« zu einer abwechslungsreichen Lektüre und damit besonders geeignet für den Einsatz im Unterricht.

The relevance of this work on lexicosemantic memory for studies of autobiographical memory resides in the fact that the vast majority of such studies are driven by words-as-cues. ) This is the CrovitzSchiffman (1974) word-cue technique in which participants hear or see a word, retrieve the semantic referent of that word, and then use that meaning (referent) to search for a personal memory.
