I had to read this for a classics course I recently took. I actually do own a hard copy of this text but when I saw this free version I thought I'd download it. Content-wise this is a text written by Seneca which is a parody of the deification of Claudius. It's one of my favorite Roman texts and it is absolutely hilarious. For this actual version, It has some small grammatical errors which of course really isn't that big of a deal. Also oddly, there is a sort of disclaimer at the beginning that this might not be written by Seneca, which I've never heard before. As far as I know it is completely attributed to Seneca, that he wrote this shortly after Claudius' death when he, Seneca that is, was brought back from exile to be Nero's tutor, as you will notice praise for Nero in the text, but I don't know. What really bugged me is I actually read some of this in Latin very recently, so it is fresh in my head and this version just seems too idiomatic. I just feel like when you're reading a text that is 2000 years old, you kind of expect some heftiness to the language. This definitely takes liberties with the syntax and words but the content and meaning are still there and it's still a great read. And best of all, it's free! So how much can you really complain I suppose.
I think it was a little harsh on Claudius, who from my understanding was quite the good administrator. It's curious how kindly Caligula is treated in this work as his violence, insanity, and atrocity are well known even in the modern world among those with even the most basic of classical educations.
Seneca, the ever wise, words Claudius into a lowly worm. Prior to the invention of the F Word, people had to use real insults to deride, and this text is a shining example of a roast so vicious and shrewd, that one cannot but feel the penetrating stabs eons later. A perfect how-to.
For any student of Roman history this short "book" is great. Aside from laughter it also grants insight as to the mindset of people towards Claudius. Apparently Seneca was not a fan. I guess we will never know if Claudius was an idiot or truly wise.
