Queen Victoria by Lytton Strachey( )

334 editions published between 1912 and 2020 in 6 languages and held by 7,674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lytton Strachey's acclaimed portrayal of Queen Victoria revolutionised the art of biography by using elements of romantic fiction and melodrama to create a warm, humorous and very human portrait of this iconic figure. We see Victoria as a strong-willed child with a famous temper, as the 18-year-old girl queen, as a monarch, wife, mother and widow. Equally fascinating are the depictions of her relationships: with her governess "precious Lehzen", with Peel, Gladstone and Disraeli, with her beloved Albert and, in later life, her legendary devotion to her Highland servant John Brown, all

Ermyntrude and Esmeralda by Lytton Strachey( Book )

21 editions published between 1968 and 1995 in English and French and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ermyntrude and Esmeralda was written as an exchange of correspondence between two teenage girls who have pledged themselves to find out all they can about sex, love, and making babies. Their reported discoveries include a passionate love affair between Esmeralda's younger brother and his male tutor ("Will they have babies? If not, why not?"); Ermyntrude's affair with a handsome footman on a staircase; the attempted seduction of Ermyntrude by her governess. By using nursery terms for private parts of the anatomy (bow-wows and pussy cats will never sound the same), Strachey makes all the more ludicrous society's standard reaction of horror to sex and deviation. Wit, irony, exaggeration, melodrama, these were Lytton Strachey's methods in this recently discovered and never before published novella
