Picking up the place the terribly attention-grabbing I, Claudius ends, Claudius the God tells the story of Claudius' 13-year reign as Emperor of Rome. Naturally, it ends while Claudius is murdered--believe me, it isn't giving whatever away to claim this; the shock is whilst a person does not get poisoned. whereas Claudius spends so much of his time sooner than changing into emperor tending to his books and his writings and attempting to remain out of the final line of corruption and killings, his lifestyles at the throne places him into the guts of the political maelstrom.

After giving "I, Claudius" a less-than-perfect review, i am doing an about-face and pointing out that I loved this sequel and want Robert Graves had written a complete sequence concerning the personalities of the Roman Empire Read Claudio, El Dios (Claudius #2) by Robert Graves: djvu, PDF. whereas Claudius certainly wasn't infallible (and there have been occasions he was once downright stupid), he finally proved himself to be tremendous and brave. i assumed it was once unlucky that the ebook ended with Seneca The Younger's satirical poem/essay approximately Claudius, "The Pumpkinification of Claudius". as the poem was once easily mean-spirited and overlooked Claudius' nice accomplishments. whereas Claudius used to be completely flawed to have accomplished such a lot of humans after being manipulated via his wife, Messalina, he is in no way the 1st guy to were fooled via a woman, and it should not negate his nice achievements (like the rebuilding of the harbor, the development of latest aquaducts, the conquering of Britain, his skill to prevent wars with Jewish faction, etc.). he is the single Roman emperor that i have learn of (so far) who did not appear to be corrupted by way of his success, and who wasn't pushed through a hope for extra power Read Claudio, El Dios (Claudius #2) by Robert Graves: djvu, PDF. i really think that during his heart, Claudius simply desired to be a very good chief for the Roman empire Read Claudio, El Dios (Claudius #2) by Robert Graves: djvu, PDF. regardless of how a lot Seneca and others could have cheered the demise of Claudius, i might guess that when many years of Nero they learned how reliable they as soon as had it.

Yes, we're all mad, we Emperors. we start sanely, like Augustus and Tiberius or even Caligula (though he used to be an evil character, he was once sane at first), and monarchy turns our wits Read Claudio, El Dios (Claudius #2) by Robert Graves: djvu, PDF. This booklet is way extra tragic than the last. Claudius turns into the divine emperor of Rome - opposed to all odds - and ideas for 13 years. whereas the 1st ebook has no genuine narrative arc, this one is framed through factors: Claudius's love for his younger wife, Messalina, and his wish for Rome to come to republican government. i presumed this used to be a pretty attention-grabbing analyzing that explains the tip of Claudius's reign and the ascendance of Nero, but in addition wraps up the sequence on a bittersweet note. Messalina's betrayal and Claudius's cynicism create the climax of the book, and his reign then spirals depressingly downward till he is poisoned by way of Agrippina.Graves does create a believable reason behind Claudius's marriage to Agrippina, that is anything i would categorize below "what used to be Claudius thinking?" forever. (view spoiler)[Claudius's gradual draw back from republicanism - whereas expected, in case you be aware of whatever in regards to the heritage of Rome - is rooted in his cynical (and maybe untrue) awareness that the folks and Senate of Rome deserve the govt. that they have got lower than the Julio-Claudians Read Claudio, El Dios (Claudius #2) by Robert Graves: djvu, PDF. He makes an attempt via overall state of no activity to make Nero into the worst attainable ascendant Caesar, and hopes that Nero will so mistreat the population that they are going to revolt. Britannicus will lie in wait till that day, at which aspect he will restoration the Republic. (Alas, this is often evidently now not how issues end up at all.) this is often a method to provide an explanation for how Claudius can have in all probability concept that marrying Agrippina and adopting Nero was once an excellent idea, yet it is a lovely miserable one. i am not convinced how i believe approximately it. On one hand, it truly is lovely tricky to make the tip of Claudius's reign whatever yet depressing; at the other, it implies that Claudius spends the final 5 years of his existence simply whiling away time, trying to make Nero as bad as attainable (by bringing Seneca again from Corsica! such a lot of pictures fired). (hide spoiler)] Basically, all of it boils right down to ladies, amirite? cannot stay with 'em (you get poisoned), cannot reside with out 'em (you lose the desire to live). it is acceptable yet unhappy that this booklet ends with Seneca describing Claudius's arrival in heaven and next dismissal to hell. it is yet one more one that hated Claudius (he exiled Seneca from Rome for 8 years) conversing up his faults, disregarding the nice that he did for Rome. i have used the be aware "depressing" a number of occasions during this review, and that i imagine that sums up my strategies at the book. it really is well-written and that i loved it greater than the 1st (especially Herod Agrippa! what a life), yet there is simply no technique to positioned a good spin at the ending. it is not that literature inevitably wishes a cheerful finishing - so much reliable literature actively steers clear of that, really - yet it is in order that challenging to examine Claudius's efforts should you be aware of that Nero is subsequent in line Read Claudio, El Dios (Claudius #2) by Robert Graves: djvu, PDF. not anyone merits that, least of all Claudius. "I talked liberty to lots of my associates and, you know the way it it is, whilst one talks liberty every little thing seem
