Strange can't help but laugh a little at Lambert's response, a short little 'heh' of a laugh over anything else. Norrell is a hundred percent a dick, and he's glad that other people see so. But at Lambert's question, Strange pauses for a moment, mulling things over before he actually answers.
"Of a sort. He wanted to ignore the Raven King, to deny him his proper place in English magic." It's obvious that this is a sticking point with Strange, who's getting more and more annoyed the more he talks about this. "To cut the Raven King out of English magic is pure nonsense. He's an intrinsic part of the whole thing. Why would you leave English magic toothless and dull just for the sake of a petty vendetta against a long-gone man?"
Because, at least in Strange's mind, that's what it is. A petty vendetta. He speaks about the Raven King with such awe and admiration (something that's amazingly obvious in his book), why couldn't others see that as well?
