Overview

Hailed as a "brilliant masterpiece" by the London Times, Lytton Strachey's classic work gives the most comprehensive and delightful look at Queen Victoria and her reign. The book that changed the style of biographical writing is now expanded with historical illustrations.

Here is the full panorama of Victoria's life, her childhood, her marriage to Albert, and her majestic domination of a colorful court circle. Illustrated spreads beautifully depict the great men and women of her time, Balmoral Castle, The Great Exhibition of 1851, and scenes of the Empire at its finest moment.

Originally published in 1921, this prose timelessly portrays the details of the royal family that fascinated readers in the Victorian era and continue to intrigue us in the present day. Strachey's flair for throwing "a sudden revealing searchlight into obscure recesses, hitherto undivined," places Queen Victoria as one of the literary landmarks of the century.

Lytton Strachey (1880-1932) was a member of the Bloomsbury group and the author of a number of biographies including Eminent Victorians and Elizabeth and Essex.

A comprehensive account of Queen Victoria and her reign.

Editorial Reviews

Guardian
Hilarious social commentary… If all biographies were like Stracheys, they would probably kill off the novel altogether.
From Barnes & Noble
This classic biography by the author of Eminent Victorians offers a delightful account of Queen Victoria--her childhood, her marriage to Albert, & what the author calls her "persistent vitality" through her reign of 60 years. "A classic in English literature."-- The New Republic.

    The Queen

    I truly enjoyed reading and learning about the dignified queen. This history chronicles her personal life, including details about her noteworthy personality and ideals. I wish the account would have provided more information about the cultural context and global situation of her times.

    Interesting

    I found Strachey's book to be one of the most interesting biographies I've read, more in book form than an actual biography. The inserts from her diaries really added to the content and helped get to know her character better. It flowed really well and I would recommenf this book for a fun report, but as for spare time reading... Maybe something a bit shorter.

    Text Errors

    I am not sure if it was just this version or not, but this book had text errors throughout. I was only able to take it for 11 pages.
