Robert Graves (1895-1985) was a British novelist, poet, translator, and scholar. His iconoclastic study of poetic myth-making, The White Goddess (1948) has been a sourcebook for generations of poets and writers.  His most famous works are the historical novels I, Claudius (1934) and its sequel, Claudius the God (1935)—for which he won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize in 1934—and his autobiography, Goodbye to All That.
