Synopsis

Caligula: most notorious of the Roman Emperors, who seduced his own sister, installed a horse in the Roman Senate, turned his palace into a brothel, married a prostitute, tortured and killed hundreds of innocent citizens on a whim, and committed countless other acts of madness, cruelty and deviancy. Award-winning writers Stephen Barber and Jeremy Reed document in full the atrocities of Caligula and also the other mad Emperors, particularly the deranged Commodus and Heliogabalus, the teenage ambisexual “sun-god” whose arch-decadent proclivities would inspire Antonin Artaud to eulogise him in prose centuries later. Also included is a bloody history of Gladiators and the Roman Arena, the depraved circus where Christians, freaks and criminals were butchered by the thousand. DIVINE?CARNAGE is a shocking catalogue of incest, transvest­ism, torture, slaughter and perversity brought to life by Barber and Reed’s superb authorial skill, making it an essential and eloquent document of murderous decadence. This special ebook edition includes bonus material in the form of "The LIfe Of Nero", by Suetonius.
