Lytton Strachey’s Literary History

  • S. P. Rosenbaum


While Forster struggled with novels he could not finish, Lytton Strachey continued to seek inspiration for plays. From the Elizabethan blank verse of Essex he had written in 1909 (see Edwardian Bloomsbury pp. 306–7) he turned back towards the East, not to the eighteenth-century India of his dissertation on Warren Hastings, but to a prose play about twentieth-century imperial China. The composition of this literary dead-end was delayed, however, by a commission more closely connected with his eventual success as a writer.
