The reigns of the Julio-Claudian emperors were characterized by murder and debauchery. This book presents a narrative of these reigns, ranging from Augustus to Nero, with passages in original Latin from Tacitus, Suetonius and Seneca. The text accordingly exposes Augustus' adulterous affairs; the depraved Tiberius; the extravagance and madness of Caligula; the ineffective Claudius; and Nero's artistic pretensions. Featuring a comprehensive introduction, detailed notes and an appreciation of each writer, the volume is essential reading for students who have completed an introductory Latin course.
