a portrait in miniature
Giles Lytton Strachey was born 100 years ago, and his Eminent Victorians was first published in 1918. This collection of essays in iconoclasm shook the whole fabric of English biographical writing. Strachey inaugurated a new type of biography - brief and brilliant - in which fact and reflection were fused together in a work of art as individual and creative as a novel.
In conversation with Derek Parker , Michael Holroyd assesses Strachey's contribution to the art of biography, describes his circle of friends and tells of the tragic consequences, upon the woman who loved him, of his early death from cancer. with Daniel Massey as Lytton Strachey
