Strachey, Lytton: Queen Victoria, v1. 27 Jan 2010

A while ago, I was reading a books of essays by the late American author and critic, Edmund Wilson, and came across his essay on Lytton Strachey. In it, he said that Strachey had approached Queen Victoria in the mood of Eminent Victorians and then relented. Instead of being caricatured as Florence Nightingale was in Eminent Victorians, he presented her as living a woman's limited life, for all her position and public responsibility. This sounded encouraging and I ended up enjoying this very readable biography. He reserves most of his acid for the cast of supporting characters, though it has a very sympathetic portrait of Albert, I thought. Anyhow, here it is, a biography of Princes William and Harry's great, great, great, grandmother (I think.)

As is very common, the Gutenberg text provided no italics or accents on foreign words. I got a copy of the book from the public library and diligently searched for both, but if someone sees foreign words or phrases that they know should have accents, and will let me know, I provide them in a new edition.
