There are many other biographies of Richard Burton and what sets this original biography apart is that Melvyn Bragg has discovered and summed up a man hidden until now from all but one or two of his closest friends, and even to them a mystery. From unpublished letters and memoirs, from new interviews with those who have never spoken, above all from 350, words of Burton's notebooks never before seen, a portrait emerges of a man of multitudes, of vast qualities, immense flaws, wonderful ambitions, crippling melancholy and illnesses, something of a scholar, a fighter and a reckless warrior who lived the life of a legend from his beloved Wales.
