Strachey, Lytton, Eminent victorians, v1, 11Sep07

From Wikipedia:

"With the publication of Eminent Victorians, Lytton Strachey set out to breathe life into the Victorian era for future generations to read. Up until this point, Strachey felt, Victorian biographies "(were) as familiar as the cortége of the undertaker, and wear the same air of slow, funeral barbarism." Strachey defied the tradition of sprawling volumes of undigested information, and took aim on a number of iconified figures with his ironic wit; modern biographer Christopher Hitchens has been likened to him. Strachey's analysis is both humanizing and critical, but is careless with historical fact."

Unflaggingly interesting biographical essays on noted Victorian figures. IMO, impossible not to be moved by the last one on General Gordon.
