Yet so far has his reputation been eclipsed by that of his better-known peers that even the correct pronunciation of his name (to rhyme with 'mouthey', as Byron joked) has been forgotten. This new biography tells the fascinating story of a complex and contradictory man, the mirror of his age, and sets him centre-stage to provide a new perspective on familiar events and figures."@en ;
