There have been more than a dozen Burton biographies and at least three of Lady Burton. Virtually all of these have been published by trade presses and marketed to broad audiences. Burton has also been the subject of documentary films and fiction, perhaps most notably in William Harrison's novel Burton and Speke (1982), from which the film Mountains of the Moon (1990) was made. Many of Burton's books have been reprinted since his death, attaining a level of success far greater than during his lifetime. His wide range of accomplishments and enigmatic character, yet to be fully defined, make him continually attractive to researchers, writers, and readers. See ODNB.
