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 â€œsun-godâ€ 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, transvestÂism, torture, slaughter and perversity brought to life by Barber and Reedâ€™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.
