Amphibious Thing: The Life of Lord Hervey

By Lucy Moore

Lord Hervey – strikingly handsome courtier, confidant of Queen Caroline and right-hand man to Prime Minister Walpole – was the darling of the glittering court of George II. Painted by Hogarth and satirized by Fielding and Pope, he counted among his friends and enemies some of the most brilliant men and women of the eighteenth century. In private, however, he led a rakish life that was – even by the mores of the age’s debauched aristocracy – scandalous. In Amphibious Thing, Lucy Moore brings to life the intrigues, the illicit liaisons and the petty rivalries that surrounded Lord Hervey and that finally led to his fall from grace.
