Robert Graves was a poet and author of historical novels and short fiction. The Introduction gives a brief biography of Graves, then looks at some elements of his creative life that are not examined in the collection of essays. It considers Graves’s use of classical tropes and characters in poetry, adaptation for stage and screen, the nature of translation, and Graves’s part in the evolution of the historical novel.
