I, Claudius by Robert Graves Summary

“One of the really remarkable books of our day”—the story of the Roman emperor on which the award-winning BBC TV series was based (The New York Times). Once a rather bookish young man with a limp and a stammer, a man who spent most of his time trying to stay away from the danger and risk of the line of ascension, Claudius seemed an unlikely candidate for Emperor. Yet, on the death of Caligula, Claudius finds himself next in line for the throne, and must stay alive as well as keep control. Drawing on the histories of Plutarch, Suetonius, and Tacitus, noted historian and classicist Robert Graves tells the story of the much-maligned Emperor Claudius with both skill and compassion. Weaving important themes throughout about the nature of freedom and safety possible in a monarchy, Graves’ Claudius is both more effective and more tragic than history typically remembers him. A bestselling novel and one of Graves’ most successful, I, Claudius has been adapted to television, film, theatre, and audio. “[A] legendary tale of Claudius . . . [a] gem of modern literature.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

I, Claudius by Robert Graves (Book Analysis) by Bright Summaries Summary

Unlock the more straightforward side of I, Claudius with this concise and insightful summary and analysis! This engaging summary presents an analysis of I, Claudius by Robert Graves, the fictionalised autobiography of the titular character, who unexpectedly became emperor in CE 41. Claudius was seen as a fool by his family and was sidelined from the power struggles at the heart of the imperial dynasty, which both kept him out of danger and enabled his rise, and made him a brilliant, insightful observer of the debauchery and turmoil of the early Roman Empire. I, Claudius won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize and the Hawthornden Prize, and was followed by the acclaimed sequel Claudius the God, which provides an account of Claudius’ time as emperor.

Claudius the God by Robert Graves Summary

Claudius has survived the murderous intrigues of his predecessors to become, reluctantly, Emperor of Rome. Here he recounts his surprisingly successful reign: how he cultivates the loyalty of the army and the common people to repair the damage caused by Caligula; his relations with the Jewish King Herod Agrippa; and his invasion of Britain. But the growing paranoia of absolute power and the infidelity of his promiscuous young wife Messalina mean that his good fortune will not last forever. In this second part of Robert Graves's fictionalized autobiography, Claudius - wry, rueful, always inquisitive - brings to life some of the most scandalous and violent times in history. Includes an introduction by Barry Unsworth, as well as explanatory footnotes.
