One of the most eminent of Edwardians, Lytton Strachey, was a writer of wit and charm, with an ability to deliver a razor sharp critical analysis to any subject or person he chose to settle upon. He was a literary breath of fresh air who changed, forever, how biography should, must be written, with his most successful book, Eminent Victorians, a huge best-seller when it was first published in 1918.
