Overview

Queen Victoria (Illustrated) by Lytton Strachey

� The book is an edited and illustrated version of the original one and includes 15 or more unique illustrations which are relevant to its content.
� �Within two years of Albert's death a violent disturbance in foreign politics put Victoria's faithfulness to a crucial test. The fearful Schleswig-Holstein dispute, which had been smouldering for more than a decade, showed signs of bursting out into conflagration. The complexity of the questions at issue was indescribable. "Only three people," said Palmerston, "have ever really understood the Schleswig-Holstein business�the Prince Consort, who is dead�a German professor, who has gone mad�and I, who have forgotten all about it." But, though the Prince might be dead, had he not left a vicegerent behind him? Victoria threw herself into the seething embroilment with the vigour of inspiration. She devoted hours daily to the study of the affair in all its windings; but she had a clue through the labyrinth: whenever the question had been discussed, Albert, she recollected it perfectly, had always taken the side of Prussia. Her course was clear. She became an ardent champion of the Prussian point of view.�

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.

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.

This is one of the must-have books for everyone who is interested in Queen Victoria. The pictures are simply fantastic and the also the text is well-written, detailed and very readable. On the whole a wonderful and highly recommendable book.

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.
