What happens when Bill needs Avis' secret to save his life and the adults find out about it? . Robert von Ranke Graves (also known as Robert Ranke Graves and most commonly Robert Graves) 24 July 1895 – 7 December 1985) was an English poet, translator and novelist. During his long life he produced more than 140 works. Graves' poems-together with his translations and innovative interpretations of the Greek myths, his memoir of his early life, including his role in the First World War, GOODBYE TO ALL THAT, and his historical study of poetic inspiration, THE WHITE GODDESS-have never been out of print. He earned his living from writing, particularly popular historical novels such as I, CLAUDIUS, KING JESUS, THE GOLDEN FLEECE, and COUNT BELISARIUS. He also was a prominent translator of Classical Latin and Ancient Greek texts; his versions of THE TWELVE CAESARS and THE GOLDEN ASS remain popular today for their clarity and entertaining style. Graves was awarded the 1934 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for both I, CLAUDIUS and CLAUDIUS THE GOD.
