New York, NY (PRWEB) October 09, 2013
Leading independent digital publisher RosettaBooks has licensed United States eBook rights to I, Claudius and Claudius the God, the two most celebrated works of poet, novelist, critic and historian Robert Graves, who published more than 140 works during his long career.
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. He also wrote some of the most popular works on these same topics for children. “We are privileged to add these 18 works of Robert Graves to our major author collections at RosettaBooks,” said Arthur Klebanoff, CEO of RosettaBooks.
“The comprehensive publishing plan offered by RosettaBooks appealed to the copyright holders,” said Linda Shaughnessy on behalf of AP Watt at United Agents.
