Translated from Italian into English, The Life of Caesar, by thethe author, is, as the title would suggest, a biography of the great Roman Dictator Julius Caesar. The author's book, however, cannot be described just as a biography. His work, in fact, can be more accurately defined as a complete history not only of Julius Caesar's life, but also of his times, the time of the fall of the Roman Republic.
