"The story of the Emperor Claudius, an historian, can finally be told when his famous lost autobiography is located." Also: "Claudius is lame and a stammerer who seems unlikely to carry on the family tradition of power in ancient Rome. Immersing himself in scholarly pursuits, Claudius observes and lives through the plots hatched by his grandmother, Livia, political conspiracies, murders, and corruption, and he survives a number of emperors. He becomes emperor at last and is a just and well-liked ruler, in contrast to those who preceded him."

The reader over your shoulder : a handbook for writers of English prose by Robert Graves ( Book )
96 editions published between 1943 and 1979 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 2,042 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This witty, learned, entertaining and enlightening book, by two masters of English prose, is an invaluable guide to anyone who has to write or teach English on any level. For although it is not true, as most other nations believe, that English is "an illogical, chaotic language, unsuited for clear thinking," it is undeniable that English is less structured grammatically than French, Spanish, Italian or German and therefore prone to slipshod usage and ambiguity. On the other hand, no other European language "admits of such poetic exquisiteness" or offers so many opportunities for individuality, development and growth. - Back cover

King Jesus by Robert Graves ( Book )
56 editions published between 1946 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Graves' unique retelling of his life, Jesus is very much a mortal, and the grandson of King Herod the Great. When his father runs afoul of the King's temper and is executed, Jesus is raised in the house of Joseph the Carpenter. The kingdom he is heir to, in this version of the story, is very much a terrestrial one: the Kingdom of Judea. Graves tells of Jesus' rise as a philosopher, scriptural scholar, and charismatic speaker in sharp detail, as well as his arrest and downfall as a victim of pitiless Roman politics. Bringing together his unparalleled narrative skill and in-depth expertise in historical scholarship, renowned classicist and historical novelist Robert Graves brings the story of Jesus Christ to life in a strikingly unorthodox way, making this one of the most hotly contested novels Graves ever wrote, and possibly one of the most controversial ever written. It provides a fascinating new twist to a well-known story, one that fans of this historical period are sure to love

Wife to Mr. Milton; the story of Marie Powell by Robert Graves ( Book )
56 editions published between 1941 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The famous poet John Milton, author of Paradise Lost, had a wife, and their story is both strange and tumultuous. Consummate historical novelist and poet Robert Graves tells the story from the perspective of the wife, Marie Powell, a young woman who married the poet to escape a debt. From the start, the couple proves mismatched; Milton is a domineering and insensitive husband set on punishing Marie for not providing the promised dowry. John Milton and his young wife are both religiously and temperamentally incompatible, and this portrait of their relationship is spellbinding, if not distinctly unflattering to Milton. It also provides fascinating accounts of the political upheavals of the time, including the execution of Charles I. This book is an excellent read for fans of historical fiction
