Shelves: ancient Love this book probably the most out of the series. Everitt does an amazing job of showing how a child who was limp, deaf, and had a speech impediment brought the army and Rome to love him through his knowledge of philosophy, oration, and politics. Definitely would recommend this book to fellow students who brush over Claudius to focus on the more famous Nero. I mistakenly assumed that it would take on the approach of a chronological biography and as a result i was a bit let down as the biography is structured in categories rather than chronology.

Also the writing style of Barbara did not really suit me. I had previously came off reading Augustus by Goldsworthy, Tiberius and Caligula and I could not put them down, I buzzed right through them. This book for me is quite a I really wanted to like this book but I found it very awkward to read. It could simply be that there is not an abundance of information about Claudius as he was not remembered as one of the more popular Roman emperors, wrongly considered a dunce by many.

Within the first 70 pages Claudius had died by mushrooms and then a poisoned feather at the supposed hands of Agrippina along with Britannicus his son who died at a party.

This timing through me off a little and then it jumped right into his politics. For me this approach was a bit jarring and it does not really gel with my reading style. Me parece meritorio el intento de separar el grano de la paja en la imagen proyectada por las fuentes primarias.

La lectura es todo lo entretenida que permite un ensayo de este tipo.
