Caligula by Albert Camus

Book Description

History / Characters: 18 males, 2 females Scenery: Exterior Caligula explores the absolutism of power and the catastrophe of tyranny. Caesar summons his council, whose first thought is of taxes. Very well, says Caesar, if taxes are more important than human hearts, he may safely kill without conscience. He pursues the logic to the bitter end. In the last scene, he is murdered, an ending he knew was inevitable. "Has given the theatre a red hot glow." N.Y. World Telegram & Sun.

Yet he is as much a victim as a criminal.
