With the same brilliance that characterized I, CLAUDIUS, Robert Graves continues the tumultuous life of the Roman who became emperor in spite of himself and his handicaps.
CLAUDIUS THE GOD captures the vitality, splendor and decadence of Rome just entering its decline. It is a superb re-creation of a colorful moment in history, and through the eyes of the bemused and wry Claudius, a compelling and ironic account of human nature.
"This book, with or without its predecessor, is amusing and illuminating to a high degree." (The New York Times)
