This remarkable woman: Lytton Strachey’s Florence Nightingale

Creina Mansfield and Frank Vigon

Please note that places on this course are limited, early booking is advisable to avoid disappointment.

Florence Nightingale was a national heroine when Lytton Strachey decided to make her one of his subjects in his ground-breaking ‘Eminent Victorians.’ The portrait that emerged was of a much more complex human being than the saintly ‘lady with the lamp’. Through words and images we shall describe her work during the Crimean War and ask the question: is Strachey’s depiction of Nightingale accurate and fair?
