    Acclaimed biographer Julia Markus has written an unprecedented and illuminating portrait of the brilliant, tortured, and controversial James Anthony Froude the quintessential Victorian, father of modern biography, historian, diplomat, and prodigal son J Anthony Froude expertly captures the roiling cultural history of a century through one man s dynamic life From hisAcclaimed biographer Julia Markus has written an unprecedented and illuminating portrait of the brilliant, tortured, and controversial James Anthony Froude the quintessential Victorian, father of modern biography, historian, diplomat, and prodigal son J Anthony Froude expertly captures the roiling cultural history of a century through one man s dynamic life From his birth in 1818 to his death in 1894, J Anthony Froude embodied the issues and complexities of his time Through the story of his life, Markus elucidates the major ideological issues of the nineteenth century sexuality, colonialism, and the widespread challenges to religion s long held cultural primacy.In beautifully crafted prose, Markus reveals the compelling life of one of the most important thinkers of the Victorian age the brutality of his early education, his troubled relationship with his father, his expulsion from Oxford, his dramatic and dazzling literary career, his delicious political incorrectness, his two marriages, his relationships with his children, his friendships with such disparate luminaries as Ralph Waldo Emerson and Cardinal Newman, his diplomatic work for Prime Minister Disraeli, and his complex relationship with Thomas Carlyle, his spiritual father and the subject of his most famous biography.A L Rowse, historian and author, called Froude the last great Victorian awaiting revival No life of the period is poignant, no destiny fascinating, than that of this man who in his books and his actions reflected the triumphs and the errors of his society.

    • Helen Andrews says:

      I disagree with the reviewer who said this book "needed an editor." Quite the opposite, Markus's prose style falls exactly between lightweight-journalist breeziness and clunky academic-ese, which is a difficult but crucial balance to strike in a book of this kind. If you have read Froude (or plan to read him) and want to know a bit of background about the man himself, this book will suit your needs perfectly.

    • Donna Jo Atwood says:

      I had never heard of Froude before. This book badly needed an editor--it was repetitous and badly paced. The man really was rather interesting, but it was hard work to find it out.
