Strachey, Lytton: Eminent Victorians. V1. 9 Oct 2012

Eminent Victorians
by Lytton Strachey (1918)

Giles Lytton Strachey (1 March 1880 21 January 1932) was a British writer and critic and a founding member of the Bloomsbury Group.

Summary:
Eminent Victorians is a book by Lytton Strachey (one of the older members of the Bloomsbury Group), first published in 1918 and consisting of biographies of four leading figures from the Victorian era. Its fame rests on the irreverence and wit Strachey brought to bear on three men and a woman who had till then been regarded as heroes and heroine. They were:

Cardinal Manning
Florence Nightingale
Thomas Arnold
General Gordon

The book made Strachey's name and placed him firmly in the top rank of biographers, where he remains.
