   schema:reviewBody ""First published in 1938, Count Belisarius is one of Robert Graves's most consistently popular novels. A historical romance of the sixth century AD, it tells the story of Belisarius, the last of the great generals of the Roman Empire, who reconquered Africa and Italy for the emperor in Constantinople, only to be rewarded with suspicion and humiliation." "Lawrence and the Arabs also tells the story of a military hero, but one whom Graves knew personally and who was still living when his first authorised biography was published in 1927. Both as an attempt to tell the story of the Arab Revolt and Lawrence's place in it, and as an instalment in the growth of the legend of 'Lawrence of Arabia', it is an important historical and literary document. Read together, these books show Graves exploring the nature of heroism in a world grown profoundly suspicious of heroes."--BOOK JACKET." ;
