Anyone have an opinion on Michael Grant's book Nero? There are no reviews here on LT.
and "for the "Times" part of this threadʻs title: The Satyricon of Petronius. Being an ally of Nero, he naturally left
Nero out of this satirical work, so no good for the "Life".
For the life, perhaps John Bishopʻs "Nero", which I havenʻt even seen for decades. I remember that, when the author begin a breif teaching stint at Boston University it was controversial among the small group of classicists there -- as being a near-"Whitewash" of Nero. (Bishop is "John Bishop" #6 among the many John Bishops in LT listings.
I should have read Michael Grantʻs book, (4) but havenʻt. Miriam Griffinʻs (4) is new to me.
