Memoirs Of Hadrian

Little by little this letter, begun in order to tell you of the progress of my illness.

Has become the diversion of a man who no longer has the energy necessary for the continued application to affairs of state; it has become, in fact.

The written meditation of a sick man who holds the audience with his memories. I propose now to do more than this: I have formed a project for telling you about my life.

To be sure, last year I composed an official summary of my career, to which my secretary Phlegon gave his name.

I told a few lies therein as possible; regard for public interest and decency nevertheless forced me to modify certain facts.

The truth which I intend to set forth here is not particularly scandalous or is so only to the degree that any truth creates a scandal.

I do not expect your seventeen years to understand anything of it. I desire, all the same, to instruct you and to shock you as well.

Your tutors, whom I have chosen myself, have given you this severe education, well supervised and too much protected, perhaps; from it, I hope that eventually, great benefit will accrue both to you and to the State.

I offer you here, in the guise of corrective, a recital stripped of preconceived ideas and of mere abstract principles; it is drawn wholly from the experience of one man, who is myself.

I am trusting to this examination of facts to give me some definition of myself, and to judge myself, perhaps, or at the very least to know myself better before I die.
