    MOBI I, Claudius ePUB È · history books.co claudius book, mini series ebok, 1976 mobile, I, Claudius MOBIAfter reading the reviews on IMDb I bought the DVD set I have watched the series countless times since and still continue to marvel at the uality of this workFor anyone unfamiliar with the early Roman principate the Julio Claudian dynasty was in power for a period of about years from Augustus to the death of Nero in AD This TV series covers the period from about BC to AD the death of emperor ClaudiusThe story is semi autobiographical written by Claudius towards the end of his reign and covering the history of his family from Augustus down to the young Nero his successorMurder is the dominating theme as Augustus wife Livia artfully dispatches one imperial contender after another so that her son Tiberius can be emperor It is not simply vanity that drives her machinations but she is convinced that only Tiberius can keep the principate intact Should any other candidate take over from Augustus Rome would descend into civil war and anarchy It is mostly Li

    MOBI I, Claudius ePUB È · history books.co claudius book, mini series ebok, 1976 mobile, I, Claudius MOBIBased on Robert Graves famous novel I CLAUDIUS is the ultimate soap opera vicious cruel manipulative and this famous English miniseries grabs the attention and holds fast throughout the entire length of its complex tale of ancient intrigueThe great strengths of I CLAUDIUS are in the driving pace sharp wit and ferocity of Jack Pulmans script and the host of brilliant performers who play it out Chief among these are Sian Phillips as the calculating murderous and unspeakably cold Livia wife of Augustus although Derek Jacobi gives a justly famous performance in the title role it is Phillips who dominates and drives the story with this the most brilliant performance of her career But this is not to disparage the overall cast which is remarkably fine and includes such noted artis

    MOBI I, Claudius ePUB È · history books.co claudius book, mini series ebok, 1976 mobile, I, Claudius MOBIIn writing his epic novels `I Claudius and `Claudius the God from which this series is adapted Robert Graves reinvented the genre of historical fiction And he could hardly have chosen afascinating subject than the Julio Claudian dynasty Even a tame retelling based strictly on verified historical fact would have made an interesting tale But by embracing the lurid sensationalistic hyperbole heaped upon the founders of the Roman Empire by later writers Suetonius and Tacitus in particular Graves concocted the ultimate in dysfunctional families weaving a tale of scandal and debauchery capable of shocking even the most jaded of modern au

    MOBI I, Claudius ePUB È · history books.co claudius book, mini series ebok, 1976 mobile, I, Claudius MOBII wont add to the many superlatives ascribed to this wonderful series well deserved though they are But I would like to point out a few vital details that help explain just why it is so wonderful Much has been said about Siân Phillips intense projection of evil but just how does she do it? If you watch carefully youll see she never blinks in her close up takes some of which are very long This gives her a snakelike appearance which enhances her voice and cold beauty in imparting such an air of menace to everything she says Much has also been said about the lack of expensive sets location shots or special effects But the point is that this series is successful because of these apparent deficiencies and not despite them So much modern cinema and TV is swamped by expensive i

But I grudgingly watched and within minutes I was kicking myself for having missed episodes through This is simply one of the best film experiences Ive ever had Years after watching it the first time round I was delighted to have my hands on that new technology the VCR so that I could watch I Claudius whenever I liked In the meantime Id run out and purchased the Graves books not to mention Suetonius Lives of the Caesars Someone else here has written that this series has everything and indeed it does It has a fine sense of accuracy a
