Eminent Victorians by Lytton StracheyEminent Victorians is a groundbreaking work of biography that raised the genre to the level of high art. It replaced reverence with skepticism and Stracheys wit, iconoclasm, and narrative skill liberated the biographical enterprise. His portraits of Cardinal Manning, Florence Nightingale, Thomas Arnold, and General Gordon changed perceptions of the Victorians for a generation.
Lytton Stracheys biographical essays on four eminent Victorians dropped an explosive charge on Victorian England when the book was published in 1918.
This edition is unique in being fully annotated and in drawing on the full range of Stracheys manuscript materials and literary remains.
