The Golden Fleece tells the age-old story of the capture of the fleece and of its dramatic and heroic recovery by Jason and the Argonauts. Combining in-depth research and scholarship with literary and imaginary prowess, Robert Graves has created a thrilling and dramatic story from the ancient myth. And in the fierce battles that rage for power and riches, he reveals a legend that transcends the barriers of time and serves as a universal allegory for mankind. AUTHBIO: Robert Graves was a prolific writer and turned his hand to essays, translations, historical works, novels and short stories. During his lifetime he was known for his highly unorthodox and individual views, in particular on religion, but it was for his poetry that he most wished to be remembered. Ranked among the twelve poets of the Great War, Graves' verse is marked for its intensity and fervent passion.

Shows the legendary cruise as one of the bawdiest, bloodiest, most boisterous expeditions of all time ( Time)About the Author:
Robert Graves was a poet, professor, and the author of Goodbye to All That (1929), a landmark anti-heroic memoir of life in the trenches during World War I. He is even better known for his historical novels about the Roman emperor Claudius: I, Claudius (1934) and Claudius the God (1935). Despite those successes, Graves was primarily a poet: he published dozens of volumes of his verse during his life, and was professor of poetry at Oxford from 1961-66. Graves lived most of his adult life on the island of Majorca, at first with fellow poet Laura Riding, and later with his second wife Beryl Hodge.
