Robert von Ranke Graves (1895 - 1985) was an English poet, scholar, translator, writer of antiquity specialising in Classical Greece and Rome, and novelist. During his long life he produced more than 140 works. Graves's poems - together with his translations and innovative analysis and 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 pseudo-historical study of poetic inspiration, The White Goddess - have never been out of print.
