    Physically weak and afflicted with stuttering, Claudius is initially despised and dismissed as an idiot. Shunted to the background of imperial affairs by his embarrassed royal family, he becomes a scholar and historian, while palace intrigues and murders surround him. Observing these dramas from beyond the public eye, Claudius escapes the cruelties inflicted on the rest of the royal family by its own members and survives to become emperor of Rome in A.D. 41.

    Robert says: "An..An..Ancient Rome comes to life, brilliantly"
    "I came, I listened, I liked."
    Overall

    Learn and like it. I, Claudius is a fine piece of historical fiction, in which the characters and events are historically accurate. Claudius begins life as an unwanted, physically impaired child of the royal family, who becomes emperor rather unexpectedly. Robert Graves uses a fictional autobiography of Claudius as a device to allow Claudius' story to be told in the first person, and does so well. Frederick Davidson's narration gives voice to Claudius which entirely suits the character: clever, kind, and at times even amused by the turmoil that surrounds him.
