A thoroughly engaging fictional autobiography of nobleman Claudius during the glory of Rome. Claudius's wry worldliness is reminiscent of Mantel's Thomas Cromwell.
One of the perennial classics of historical fiction. The life of Emperor Claudius as fictionalized - with a wonderfully winning authorial voice - by Graves.

Graves' book is an excellent literary imagining of the life of the Roman emperor Claudius written as an autobiography. Graves’ rigorously researched ancient Roman texts in preparation for this novel. The follow-up book is Claudius the God.

[Ancient Rome] I know... another false-memoir by another Roman Emperor – but this one is much more... Roman? Robert Graves weaves the murder and intrigue of Roman’s new first family into a masterful tale.
