Meet the Author

Sir Richard Francis Burton (1821 – 1890) was a man of many talents. He was a British explorer, translator, writer, soldier, orientalist, ethnologist, spy, linguist, poet, fencer and diplomat. He was known for his travels and explorations within Asia and Africa as well as his extraordinary knowledge of languages and cultures. Burton had long had an interest in sexuality and erotic literature and perhaps his best-known book is his classic English translation of The Kama Sutra. Although, he did not translate the work, he provided footnotes and commentary, and was responsible for compiling and publishing the work. It has since become one of the world's most well known books on human sexuality.
