As one of the great figures of 20th century English poetry and literature, Robert Graves was acknowledged as a master of myth-inspired novels, stories based on literary events and translations of ancient Greek and Roman texts. In a deal brokered by Linda Shaughnessy on behalf of AP Watt at United Agents, and with the assistance of Jonathan Ward, head of the London office for RosettaBooks, and Roger Cooper, Associate Publisher, RosettaBooks published eBook editions of 18 Robert Graves titles, led by I, Claudius and Claudius the God.
