"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 )
101 editions published between 1943 and 1979 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 2,048 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

Immortalized in the film "Lawrence of Arabia," the real T.E. Lawrence was a leader, a war strategist, and a scholar, and is here immortalized in an intimate biography written by his close friend, the award-winning British novelist, poet and classicist Robert Graves. As a student at Oxford, T.E. Lawrence was fascinated with Middle Eastern history and culture, and underwent a four-month visit to Syria to study the fortifications built by the Crusaders. Later, he returned to the region, this time as an archaeologist working with the British Army's Intelligence unit in Egypt during World War I. From there, in 1916, he joined Arab rebels fighting against Turkish domination. His brilliance as a desert war tactician earned him the respect of the Turkish fighters and worldwide renown. This is the real story of T.E. Lawrence's life, told by one of the most influential British writers of the 20th century, and a personal friend
King Jesus by Robert Graves( Book )
57 editions published between 1946 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,636 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
