Beach Reads: I, Claudius
Once a rather bookish young man with a limp and a stammer, Claudius spent most of his time trying to stay away from the danger and risk of the line of ascension. Yet, on the death of Caligula, Claudius finds himself next in line for the throne, and must stay alive as well as keep control.
Drawing on the histories of Plutarch, Suetonius, and Tacitus, noted historian and classicist Robert Graves tells the story of the much-maligned Emperor Claudius with both skill and compassion.
Dennis McGlade will read one chapter of the book.
