This text by Suetonius, a Latin biographer, is a major source for the period from Julius Caesar to Domitian. He sets out a great range of aspects illuminating the emperors' characters, their habits - from table to bedchamber - their intrigues, their loves and their deaths. Himself, a court official, Suetonius quotes from a variety of sources, from official and private documents as well as from old anecdotes, gossip, songs and jokes.
Suetonius' book is fantastic, this book offers a real insight in to the lives Julius Caesar and the Emperors of Rome through to Domitian, Suetonius was uniquely placed to be able to gather a lot of information on these emperors, it's this dearth of information that makes this book so enjoyable to read.
