L'initiateur du drame de Caligula, c'est cet excessif Dionysos . Certes, le héros
camusien incarne aussi une part d'Apollon, dieu de la lumière intellectuelle: c'est

Caesar Augustus Germanicus, aka Caligula (A.D. 12–41), thought he had

such a transformation was the central theme in popular culture treatments of
Caligula during the ...
