Reminiscences by Thomas Carlyle( Book )

21 editions published between 1972 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881) was one of the most influential authors of the nineteenth century, and his essays and historical biographies led to him being regarded for much of the Victorian period as a literary genius and eminent social philosopher. This two-volume work, published in 1881, is a collection of Carlyle's reminiscences, which were edited by his friend, the historian J. A. Froude (1818-94). In 1871, Carlyle had given Froude a collection of his own papers, including these sketches, and of those belonging to his deceased wife, Jane, to be edited and published after his death. Froude - who was simultaneously writing his two-part biography of Carlyle (also reissued in this series) - had them ready for publication a month after Carlyle's death on 5 February 1881. Volume 1 contains Carlyle's reminiscences of his father, James, and of Edward Irving, a close friend from his early years

Spartacus by Lewis Grassic Gibbon( Book )

7 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The novel is revealing of many features of Mitchell's life; his vivid imaginary power to recreate scenes he could not possibly have visualised from real life; his sympathy with the oppressed; his deep antipathy to people who abused power. Above all, Spartacus is a vivid insight into the critique of society which spurred him to write again and again a diffusionist attack on civilisation run to fat, exploitative, uncaring, inhuman. -- Abridged from http://www.arts.gla.ac.uk/scotlit/asls/Spartacus.html (Sep. 17, 2014)
The speak of the Mearns : with selected short stories and essays by Lewis Grassic Gibbon( Book )

4 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This essential collection from Lewis Grassic Gibbon comprises short stories, essays and a novel, The Speak of the Mearns, which was unfinished at the time of the author's death in 1935. Grassic Gibbon's fame rests mainly on the trilogy, A Scots Quair, and the short stories, some well known, exhibit the same elements - powerful, dramatic writing and a distinctive local flavour - found in the novels. The Speak of the Mearns is a sharply observed unsentimental portrait of a rural coastal community seen through the eyes of a young boy growing up there. The essays put on record the author's views on politics and religion
