Lytton Strachey

(1880 - 1932)

After attending Cambridge, Lytton Strachey moved to London and became a leader of the Bloomsbury group, an influential group of writers, philosophers, artists, and intellectuals that counted E.M. Forster, Virginia Woolf, John Maynard Keynes, and Clive Bell among its members. Strachey’s best known work is Eminent Victorians, an idiosyncratic and irreverent collection of short biographical sketches on the prominent Victorian figures Cardinal Manning, Florence Nightingale, Thomas Arnold, and General Charles Gordon.
