Summary:
"Without seeking to rehabilitate the historical monster, Champlin renders Nero more intelligible by illuminating the motives behind his theatrical gestures, and revealing the artist who thought of himself as a heroic figure." "Nero is a reconception of a historical account that extends back to Tacitus, Suetonius, and Cassius Dio."--Jacket.
