The Twelve CaesarsBliographical works of the Roman Empire and discusses the critical period in Roman history known as the Principate from the end of the Republic to the reign of Domiti If you enjoyed Robert Graves' I Claudius and Claudius the God the Penguin edition of Suetonius' The Twelve Caesars is a must have in your collection Graves wields a rich command of English vocabulary to capture the subtle nuances of Suetonius' original Latin words The result is a tremendously readable and clear rendition of this ancient text with the business of language barrier thoroughly put away It puts the reader right back in that timeNo need to echo what many other reviewers have already assessed as the virtues of this work The 150 years or so featured here from the reign of Julius Caesar through that of Domitian are some of the most turbulent scandalous and horrifying in the history of the Roman Empire Highly recommended for all history buffs
