Seller Inventory GI3N Published by Forgotten Books Plutarch's Lives according to modern historians and specifically Plutarchean scholars apparently range from semi-legendary to outright legendary and therefore myth.
It is traditionally called the Life of Alexander. As well as other figures covered.
Scholars today read Lives by relying on, not the originals which are called autographs, but copies of the originals. In fact the oldest copy dates to the 10th and 11th centuries AD. This introduces a gap of time from the original autograph to the copies of about 1, years. A substantial amount of time which no copies exist, to then reconstruct the original for an English translation. There are also indications of tampering with the text by later writers. From Plutarch as an ancient biographer of first-rate, not only historical facts of ancient Greek and Roman lives can be found.
Even more importantly what Plutarch represents is the fundamentals of how to actually write history through the literary genre of ancient biography. It is because of the work of Plutarch historicity of the time periods of the individuals he covered can be discovered. The wider sociocultural context naturally flows as a result. Examples of a legendary account by Plutarch is the Life of Theseus.

William Shakespeare to even took liberties with the work of Plutarch and interacted with his Life of Coriolanus for the popular political tragedy called Coriolanus. The play was made in , close to the end of Shakespeare's life. The Oxford Companion to Shakespeare declares that the biography of Gaius Marcius Coriolanus by Plutarch is semi-legendary with little explanation.
Coriolanus lived in the 5th century BC and had a great deal to do with military sieges against the Volscians.
