With the same brilliance that characterized his classic I, Claudius, Robert Graves continues the tumultuous life of the Roman who became emperor in spite of himself and his handicaps. Claudius the God reveals the splendor, vitality, and decadence of the Roman Empire through the eyes of the wry and bemused Claudius, who reigns as emperor for 13 years.

The crippled Claudius describes himself as the fool of the royal family, whom none of his ambitious and blood-thirsty relatives considered worth the trouble of killing. Once on the throne, however, he finds himself at last at the center of the political maelstrom.

    " The continuing tale of the life of former Roman Emperor Claudius. This novel picks up where the previous one left off, with the death of Caligula and Claudius reluctantly taking charge. It's interesting enough, mostly because most of the stories are so wild they couldn't be made up and Graves sticks as close to the truth as possible. "

    " I was thinking how to describe this historical novel and frankly said it is hard to do so. Robert Graves focused his two novels on one of the most interesting person who ruled the Roman empire. Man who was survivor in the environment where others perishes so easily he maneuvered so skillfully partly due the fact the everybody considered him to be stammering idiot not even worth of killing in power struggles and yet Claudius crisply made his observation about people around him and about the fact that he saw his relatives dying and fighting each other. The vivid picture of the gluttony and darkness of the court of the roman emperors is masterfully presented and drags reader closer, perhaps more closer then reader wants. Even in the death of Claudius is strange irony. "
