Marguerite Yourcenar’s Mémoires d’Hadrien

The Mémoires are a fictional autobiography, deeply researched, of the historical Emperor Hadrian (76-138 A.D.), written in the form of a letter to his heir, the young Marcus Aurelius. Hadrian, near the end of his life, wants to make an accounting of himself: of his own character, with its strengths and vulnerabilities; of his career as emperor, with its accomplishments and his failures. And not least, of his passion for the young Greek Antinoüs, whose early death impelled Hadrian to plant his beloved’s image throughout the empire.
