About the book:

This is a selection of writings by Lytton Strachey (1880-1932), the distinguished essayist and biographer and prominent member of the Bloomsbury group. Biographical subjects include Edward Gibbon, Alexander Pope, Sarah Bernhardt, Dostoevsky, Boswell and Lady Hester Stanhope. Some essays are more personal - responses to World War I, childhood memories and an account of a Bloomsbury day out in the country with Lady Ottoline Morrell and Vanessa Bell. The writing is consistently perceptive and entertaining, demonstrating the author's piercing observation and wit. Lytton Strachey is author of "Eminent Victorians" and "Queen Victoria".
