From Mary Beard, one of the world’s leading classicists and cultural commentators, comes Twelve Ceasars: Images of Power from the Ancient World to the Modern. This fascinating work questions why murderous autocrats – from the ruthless Julius Caesar to the fly-torturing Domitian – have loomed large in art, from antiquity and the Renaissance through to today. Tune in as Mary Beard lets you in on the detective work that went into her literary creation, and offers the gripping stories behind some of the most challenging and disturbing portraits of power ever created.
