Lytton Strachey Summary

Lytton Strachey: The New Biography by Michael Holroyd

When Michael Holroyd's life of Strachey first appeared in 1967, it was hailed as a landmark in contemporary biography. Drawing now on new material, published and unpublished, Holroyd has completely revised and rewritten his masterwork to tell the full story of this complex man and his world as it could not be told while many of Strachey's friends and lovers were still alive. And at the heart of the story is the poignant liasion between Strachey and the painter Dora Carrington. A panorama of the social, literary, political and sexual life of a generation, LYTTON STRACHEY reverberates in the mind like a great novel.
