Summary

"Augustus” en storslået og velskrevet roman, der laegger sig op ad "Jeg, Claudius" af Robert Graves. Den er en fascinerende og haesblaesende fortaelling om en raekke historiske personer fra det gamle Rom.

Octavius Caesar (Augustus) var blot 18 år gammel, da hans onkel Julius Caesar blev myrdet. I en alt for ung alder skulle Augustus overtage styret og magten over den romerske republik. Han var omgivet af magtsyge maend, der med alle midler kaempede om magten - Cicero, Brutus, Cassius og Markus Aurelius - og den unge Augustus måtte modstå det magtfulde romerske raenkespil for at sikre sig positionen som den første romerske kejser.

På baggrund af grundig research tegnes et fascinerende portraet af kejser Augustus og hans enestående historie. John Williams benytter sig af brevformen, og de mange stemmer tegner et inciterende portraet af hovedpersonen Augustus. En betagende fortaelling af forfatteren til "Stoner" og "Butcher’s Crossing". John Williams modtog National Book Award for romanen i 1972.
