By Andrew Andrews

Caligula is one of the lesser-noted works of Albert Camus, the twentieth century, Nobel winning, absurdist philosopher best known for his novel The Stranger.

It’s an engaging story, although difficult to judge its historical accuracy. We know that Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, a.k.a. Caligula, was assassinated by conspirators that were close to him, supposedly for becoming a cruel tyrant before reaching the age of thirty. And we know that he suffered greatly from the loss of his favorite sister, Julia Drusilla, with whom he might have been sleeping.
