This engaging summary presents an analysis of Memoirs of Hadrian by Marguerite Yourcenar, a stunning fictional autobiography of the Roman emperor Hadrian. Written in the form of a letter from the dying Hadrian to his young successor Marcus Aurelius, it is both a chronicle of the emperor’s rise to power and his efforts to bring peace to his empire, and a meditation on the legacy he is leaving behind. The novel was selected as one of the Bokklubben World Library’s 100 Best Books in the History of Literature, and has featured on the list for nearly 15 years. It remains the best-known work by Marguerite Yourcenar, who won the prestigious Prix Femina for the novel and was awarded the Erasmus Prize in 1983. She was also the first woman elected to the Académie Française.
