Queen Victoria

Giles Lytton STRACHEY (1880 - 1932)

Lytton Strachey’s first great success, and his most famous achievement, was "Eminent Victorians" (1918), a collection of four short biographies of Victorian heroes. With a dry wit, he exposed the human failings of his subjects and what he saw as the hypocrisy at the centre of Victorian morality. This work was followed in the same style by "Queen Victoria" (1921). (Summary from Wikipedia)
