    Rake, libertine, satirist and poetic genius, John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester was one of the brightest luminaries at the court of Charles II. A man of extraordinary contradictions, he was notorious for the obscenity of his amorous verses yet also wrote some of the most moving and lyrical love poetry in the language. This biography reveals the truth beneath the brilliant facade of an unhappy, immensely talented man who eventually wanted no part of the world, or himself.
