Vintage Books, 1989 - 468 páginas
Tiberius Claudius Drusus Nero Germanicus lived from 10 B.C. to 54 A.D. Despised as a weakling and dismissed as an idiot because of his physical infirmities, Claudius survived the intrigues and poisonings that marked the reigns of Agustus, Tiberius, and the mad Caligula to become Emperor of Rome in 41 A.D. I, CLAUDIUS, the first part of Robert Graves two-part account of the life of Tiberius Claudius, is written in the form of Claudius's autobiography and stands as one of the modern classics of historical fiction.
