The reader over your shoulder : a handbook for writers of English prose by Robert Graves( Book )

91 editions published between 1943 and 1979 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 1,998 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This witty, learned, entertaining and enlightening book, by two masters of English prose, is an invaluable guide to anyone who has to write or teach English on any level. For although it is not true, as most other nations believe, that English is "an illogical, chaotic language, unsuited for clear thinking," it is undeniable that English is less structured grammatically than French, Spanish, Italian or German and therefore prone to slipshod usage and ambiguity. On the other hand, no other European language "admits of such poetic exquisiteness" or offers so many opportunities for individuality, development and growth. - Back cover
King Jesus by Robert Graves( Book )

108 editions published between 1946 and 2014 in 12 languages and held by 1,683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Graves' unique retelling of his life, Jesus is very much a mortal, and the grandson of King Herod the Great. When his father runs afoul of the King's temper and is executed, Jesus is raised in the house of Joseph the Carpenter. The kingdom he is heir to, in this version of the story, is very much a terrestrial one: the Kingdom of Judea. Graves tells of Jesus' rise as a philosopher, scriptural scholar, and charismatic speaker in sharp detail, as well as his arrest and downfall as a victim of pitiless Roman politics. Bringing together his unparalleled narrative skill and in-depth expertise in historical scholarship, renowned classicist and historical novelist Robert Graves brings the story of Jesus Christ to life in a strikingly unorthodox way, making this one of the most hotly contested novels Graves ever wrote, and possibly one of the most controversial ever written. It provides a fascinating new twist to a well-known story, one that fans of this historical period are sure to love

Lawrence and the Arabian adventure by Robert Graves( Book )

102 editions published between 1927 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Immortalized in the film "Lawrence of Arabia," the real T.E. Lawrence was a leader, a war strategist, and a scholar, and is here immortalized in an intimate biography written by his close friend, the award-winning British novelist, poet and classicist Robert Graves. As a student at Oxford, T.E. Lawrence was fascinated with Middle Eastern history and culture, and underwent a four-month visit to Syria to study the fortifications built by the Crusaders. Later, he returned to the region, this time as an archaeologist working with the British Army's Intelligence unit in Egypt during World War I. From there, in 1916, he joined Arab rebels fighting against Turkish domination. His brilliance as a desert war tactician earned him the respect of the Turkish fighters and worldwide renown. This is the real story of T.E. Lawrence's life, told by one of the most influential British writers of the 20th century, and a personal friend
Wife to Mr. Milton; the story of Marie Powell by Robert Graves( Book )

70 editions published between 1941 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The famous poet John Milton, author of Paradise Lost, had a wife, and their story is both strange and tumultuous. Consummate historical novelist and poet Robert Graves tells the story from the perspective of the wife, Marie Powell, a young woman who married the poet to escape a debt. From the start, the couple proves mismatched; Milton is a domineering and insensitive husband set on punishing Marie for not providing the promised dowry. John Milton and his young wife are both religiously and temperamentally incompatible, and this portrait of their relationship is spellbinding, if not distinctly unflattering to Milton. It also provides fascinating accounts of the political upheavals of the time, including the execution of Charles I. This book is an excellent read for fans of historical fiction
