Eminent Victorians : Cardinal Manning, Dr Arnold, Florence Nightingale, General Gordon by Lytton Strachey ( Book )
23 editions published between 1918 and 2013 in English and held by 1,097 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best nonfiction books of all time "Eminent Victorians" marked an epoch in the art of biography; it also helped to crack the old myths of high Victorianism and to usher in a new spirit by which chauvinism, hypocrisy and the stiff upper lip were debunked. In it, Strachey cleverly exposes the self-seeking ambitions of Cardinal Manning and the manipulative, neurotic Florence Nightingale; and in his essays on Dr Arnold and General Gordon, his quarries are not only his subjects but also the public-school system and the whole structure of nineteenth-century liberal values
