Robert Graves

Graves in 1929 Robert von Ranke Graves (24 July 1895 – 7 December 1985) was a British poet, historical novelist, critic, and classicist. His father was Alfred Perceval Graves, a celebrated Irish poet and figure in the Gaelic revival; they were both Celticists and students of Irish mythology. Graves produced more than 140 works in his lifetime. His poems, his translations and innovative analysis of the Greek myths, his memoir of his early life—including his role in World War I—''Good-Bye to All That'', and his speculative study of poetic inspiration ''The White Goddess'' have never been out of print.

He earned his living from writing, particularly popular historical novels such as ''I, Claudius''; ''King Jesus''; ''The Golden Fleece''; and ''Count Belisarius''. He also was a prominent translator of Classical Latin and Ancient Greek texts; his versions of ''The Twelve Caesars'' and ''The Golden Ass'' remain popular for their clarity and entertaining style. Graves was awarded the 1934 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for both ''I, Claudius'' and ''Claudius the God''. Provided by Wikipedia
