Robert Graves’ “I, Claudius” is also known as The Greatest Historical Novel Ever Written. “I, Claudius” is about the private (and public) lives of the early emperors of Rome—beginning with Augustus—and their sometimes virtuous, conniving, or debauched family members. As history, it is impeccable. Robert Graves was a great scholar and a poet, who wrote historical novels for a living. Topic and author combine to create a masterpiece. We’ll look at the historical sources, politics, philosophy, art. All things ancient Rome. For lovers of literature and history. Beginner or expert. On Campus.
