Lytton Strachey by Himself: A Self-Portrait edited by Michael Holroyd

| /

While researching his landmark biography of Lytton Strachey, Michael Holroyd had access to the fascinating Strachey archives. From this source he collected all Strachey's diaries and memoirs, which in this volume form an intermittent but not disconnected autobiography. From childhood diaries to the introspective and often anguished records of late adolescence an intimate self-portrait emerges, valuable for its own sake but also for the light it sheds on the most gifted members of the Bloomsbury Group. In addition to the diaries are two autobiographical essays and a journal written months before his death.
