"Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus, commonly known as Suetonius (c. 69 after 122), was a Roman historian belonging to the equestrian order who wrote during the early Imperial era of the Roman Empire. His most important surviving work is a set of biographies of twelve successive Roman rulers, from Julius Caesar to Domitian, entitled De Vita Caesarum. He recorded the earliest accounts of Julius Caesar's epileptic seizures. Other works by Suetonius concern the daily life of Rome, politics, oratory, and the lives of famous writers, including poets, historians, and grammarians. A few of these books have partially survived, but many have been lost."--Wikipedia

"The translation of the Lives of the Caesars is based upon the text of Maximilian Ihm, Leipzig, 1907 (editio minor, 1908) with some slight changes in punctuation, capitalization, and orthography, to conform more nearly with English and American usage. Where Ihm does not offer a readable text, conjectures have been admitted and mentioned in the footnotes, and in a few other cases a different reading from his has been adopted. The aim has been a translation, rather than the easier task of a paraphrase. The version of Philemon Holland (London, 1606) cannot be surpassed in style and spirit, and it is more accurate than any other English translation. An attempt has been made to compete with it in the only possible way, namely in greater fidelity to a better text than was available in his day, and in a nearer approach to the manner of Suetonius. The text and interpretation of Suetonius offer many difficulties, all of which have received careful consideration; but it is hardly to be hoped that the results have been satisfactory in all cases ... To the Lives of the Caesars have been added those extracts from the Lives of Illustrious Men which afford a continuous text and are generally regarded to be authentic." Preface
How to be a bad emperor : an ancient guide to truly terrible leaders by Suetonius( )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus was secretary of correspondence for the emperor Hadrian and author of the multi-part biography, Lives of the Caesars. A landmark in the development of realistic biography-writing, this work gives an account of twelve emperors, beginning with Julius Caesar. In each biography, Suetonius moves beyond the great events of Roman history and sets out to reveal the small and telling details of his subjects' lives. Suetonius' zeal in accumulating and relating what may appear to be trivial has sometimes led to the charge that he was little better than a gossip. Yet he was interested in deeper questions that fascinate political observers today. It is Suetonius' view that emperors ultimately had the power to achieve much both for good and for ill. Augustus beautified Rome, improved its infrastructure, restored its religion, and promoted discipline in the army. But other emperors, such as Tiberius, Caligula, and Nero, infamously used their power to indulge vice and harm others. Ever since their publication, Suetonius' imperial biographies have appealed to readers, both because of their sensational stories and the larger questions of power they raise. They spawned many sequels in antiquity (as well as more recent works like Robert Graves's famed, I, Claudius). While a number of good English translations are in print, reading Lives of the Caesar from cover to cover can be daunting, so many details are included. Also general readers, including students, are really interested in the stories of the bad emperors. This book, then, in a reversal of the usual self-help formula that Suetonius would appreciate, offers selections from the lives of four bad emperors (Julius Caesar, Tiberius, Caligula, and Nero) to create a guide on how to be a bad leader. own worst qualities and become more dangerous to us than any enemy. Osgood will start the volume with an introduction to Suetonius and his biographies, and also include introductions and (as appropriate, epilogues) to the individual selections. These will offer a reader already acquainted with Suetonius a better sense of the biographer's achievement and value as well as some ideas on why autocrats, or would-be autocrats, have always proven a rich subject for biographers"--
