I, Claudius: from the autobiography of Tiberius Claudius, born B.C. 10, murdered and deified A.D. 54 ..., Parte54
The Modern library, 1934 - 427 páginas
"The story of the Emperor Claudius, an historian, can finally be told when his famous lost autobiography is located." Also: "Claudius is lame and a stammerer who seems unlikely to carry on the family tradition of power in ancient Rome. Immersing himself in scholarly pursuits, Claudius observes and lives through the plots hatched by his grandmother, Livia, political conspiracies, murders, and corruption, and he survives a number of emperors. He becomes emperor at last and is a just and well-liked ruler, incontrast to those who preceded him."
