|Plot Summary of Lytton Strachey: The Years of Achievement, 1910-1932|
|" This second volume of Holroyd's biography covers the period of Strachey's successful emergence as a biographer with the publication of "Eminent Victorians" and "Queen Victoria," his continued friendship with the members of the influential Bloomsbury group, especially Virginia Woolf, and his status as a conscientious objector in World War I. His financial success allowed him the freedom to travel and to set up housekeeping with Dora Carrington, a young painter who fell in love with him despite his homosexuality. She even married his friend Ralph Partridge so that the three of them could live together in a triangular arrangement of sorts. It was she who cared for him for most of the rest of his life."
Jack Goodstein, Resident Scholar
