Through vividly imagined letters and documents, Wilder brings to life a dramatic period of world history and one of history's most magnetic, elusive personalities. In this inventive narrative, the Caesar of history becomes Caesar the human being. Wilder also resurrects the controversial figures surrounding Caesar--Cleopatra, Catullus, Cicero, and others. All Rome comes crowding through these pages--the Rome of villas and slums, beautiful women and brawling youths, spies and assassins.
