Playwright, wit, socialist, polemicist and irresistible charmer, he was the most controversial literary figure of his age and the scourge of all that was most oppressive in late-Victorian England. In his writing and public speeches, he embodied the unfamiliar virtues of reason, sense and unanswerable good humor. And yet, as the opening volume of this masterly four-volume biography makes clear, Shaw's invention of this monumental figure was a paradoxical method of concealment and his way of coming to terms with a world that had abandoned him in childhood. - Jacket flap+-+6608866525324250574ocn000255104book19670.35Holroyd, MichaelLytton Strachey; a critical biographyBiographyPreviously published as the biographical material in Lytton Strachey: a critical biography, London, Heinemann, 1967-68 Includes index Bibliography: p 1079-1087+-+1647884455324160044ocn001093381book19740.37Holroyd, MichaelAugustus John : a biographyBiographyThis volume is a biography of Welsh painter Augustus John (1878-1961). In the early part of the 1900s, he was an important practitioner of Post-Impressionism in the United Kingdom. By the age of 20 he had won a reputation for his brilliant drawing technique. Here he soon emerged as a bohemian figure as well as a highly gifted artist. The need to support Ida Nettleship (1877-1907), whom he married in 1901, led him to accept a post teaching art at the University of Liverpool. John Sampson, then University Librarian and an acknowledged expert on gypsies, became a friend and a major influence on him, introducing him to the Romany language and way of life. This led him to spend periods traveling with his growing family in gypsy caravans through Wales and England and inspired much of his work before World War I, including a series of etchings depicting gypsy life. He is best known for his portraits of leading European personalities, including those of James Joyce and George Bernard Shaw+-+9007569285117413ocn004549463book19790.29The Genius of Shaw : a symposiumBiographyConference proceedings96615ocn243544503book20080.25Holroyd, MichaelA strange eventful history : the dramatic lives of Ellen Terry, Henry Irving, and their remarkable familiesHistoryBiographyChronicles the lives of Ellen Terry, Henry Irving, and their families; and discusses Terry's acting career, marriage to George Frederick Watts, and her feminist daughter, Edith Craig; as well as Irving's successes as an actor and manager in Victorian England and his sons+-+049479768588415ocn038249393book19970.28Holroyd, MichaelBernard Shaw : the one-volume definitive editionBiographyA one-volume abridgement of Holroyd's original four-volume study+-+44955002858335ocn681499498book20100.20Holroyd, MichaelA book of secrets : illegitimate daughters, absent fathersBiographyThe author shares the stories of unknown women who played significant roles in the lives of prominent figures, including a mistress shared by the second Lord Grimthorpe and the Prince of Wales, a creative muse of Auguste Rodin, and a novelist lover of Vita Sackville-West+-+83006692858119ocn031206301book19940.31Holroyd, MichaelLytton Strachey : the new biographyBiographyIn telling Strachey's life anew, Holroyd has drawn on a wealth of previously unavailable material, bring fresh candor and accuracy to his account of Strachey's friendships with E. M. Forster, Virginia and Leonard Woolf, Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell, Ralph and Frances Patridge, and his companion Dora Carrington, among others. In many of Bloomsbury's three-cornered relationships, Holroyd could lay claim to only two sides of the triangle. Now he has all three with which to recount the story of this extraordinary man and his complex world. At the center of the drama is the long-lasting relationship between Strachey and Carrington and their "Triangular Trinity of Happiness" with Ralph Partridge.

"A biographer by profession, Holroyd had always assumed that his own family was perfectly English, or at least perfectly ordinary. But old photograph albums, papers found in the lining of an evening bag and crumbling documents in various public record offices gradually yield clues to a constellation of startling events and eccentric characters: a long, slow decline from English nobility on one side, and on the other a dramatic Scandinavian ancestry that could have been imagined by Isak Dineson. Fatal fires, suicides, bankruptcies, divorces, unconsummated longings, and the rumor of a fabulous Indian tea fortune ... all these flow from the pages of his parents' recollections, to which he adds his own."--BOOK JACKET+-+55039584853398ocn223941129book20040.23Holroyd, MichaelMosaic : portraits in fragmentsBiography'Mosaic' is Michael Holroyd's second volume of family memoirs which relates to but is independent of 'Basil Street Blues'.
