The Lives of the Caesars: Caius Caligula
A gem of the biographical genre, this captivating book contains the life accounts of twelve Roman emperors, including Julius Caesar. Suetonius not only presents the emperors as formidable rulers but also throws light on their personal lives. His talent as a biographer is at its zenith as he takes us back in time with his eloquent narrative and vibrant descriptions. Magnificent!
