The Highly Civilized Man: Richard Burton and the Victorian World

Richard Burton was one of Victorian Britain's most protean figures. A soldier, explorer, ethnographer, and polyglot of rare power, as well as a poet, travel writer, and translator of the "Tales of the Arabian Nights" and the "Kama Sutra", Burton exercised his abundant talents in a diverse array of endeavours. This book examines his life.
