Samenvatting

Holmes's Lives is a series of classic English biographies, edited and introduced by Richard Holmes. In this series, Holmes sets out to recover the great forgotten tradition of English biography writing and to reaffirm the enduring excitement of classic non-fiction. A study of biography itself, Andre Maurois' book was originally delivered as a series of six lectures at Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1928. Maurois was arguably one of the greatest French literary biographers of his generation and also a renowned Anglophile who wrote studies of Shelley, Disraeli and Alexander Fleming. He opens with a shrewd assessment of the new English biography of the 1920s defined by Virginia Woolf, Strachey and Harold Nicholson. He then considers the nature of biographical truth, autobiographical truth, novelistic truth, historic and scientific truth in a manner that ensures its relevance to contemporary biography writing.
