Sterne by H. D Traill( Book )

85 editions published between 1800 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lawrence Sterne (1713-69) was an Anglican clergyman best remembered as the author of the satirical and highly influential novel The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman. After his ordination in 1738, Sterne led the life of a country vicar in Yorkshire, publishing a few satirical works before his masterpiece, which emerged in nine volumes between 1759 and 1767. The first two volumes were an immediate success, bringing him wealth, fame, and a place at the heart of contemporary English literary society. This work, published in the first series of English Men of Letters in 1882 by the journalist (and editor of Carlyle) Henry Duff Traill (1842-1900), provides a clear and informative biography. Drawing on Sterne's detailed letters to his daughter, Traill provides a fascinating account of Sterne's early life and his clerical career together with an analysis of his writing and influence upon English literature
Coleridge by H. D Traill( Book )

99 editions published between 1880 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The publication in 1798 of Lyrical Ballads, written by William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834), is considered to be the starting point of the Romantic movement. Published in the first series of English Men of Letters in 1884, this biography by H. D. Traill (1842-1900), who also wrote on Sterne for the series, sets Coleridge's work within the context of his troubled childhood, his travels, and the depression and financial crises that plagued his life. The first writer to attempt a detailed account of Coleridge's life and work - which ranged from poetry, journalism and literary criticism to history, philosophy and theology - Traill admits to some difficulty in tracing source material, particularly as Coleridge's theological and philosophical writings were largely incomplete, and remained unpublished at his death. Nonetheless he reveals something of both the writer and also the man famously described by Lamb as 'an Archangel a little damaged'

The life of Sir John Franklin, R.N by H. D Traill( Book )

31 editions published between 1896 and 2012 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Noted for proving the existence of the Northwest Passage, John Franklin is a celebrated explorer in Canadian history. A British Royal Navy officer and Arctic explorer, Franklin first sailed around Canada from 1819 to 1822, and then again from 1825 to 1827 when he explored the mouth of the Mackenzie River. After being knighted and serving as governor of Tasmania from 1836 to 1843, Franklin took to the seas again to finally navigate his Northwest Passage. Perhaps from starvation and exposure to the harsh Arctic climate, Franklin and his crew never successfully made it back home, but their efforts, maps, journals and bravery leave them memorialized in museums and monuments throughout Canada today

On heroes, hero-worship, & the heroic in history by Thomas Carlyle( Book )

18 editions published between 1841 and 2010 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881) was one of the most influential authors of the nineteenth century. Eagerly studied at the highest level of intellectual society, his satirical essays and perceptive historical biographies caused him to be regarded for much of the Victorian period as a literary genius and eminent social philosopher. After graduating from Edinburgh University in 1814, he published his first scholarly work on German literature in 1824, before finding literary success with his ground-breaking history of the French Revolution in 1837. After falling from favour during the first part of the twentieth century, his work has more recently become the subject of scholarly re-examination. His introduction of German literature and philosophy into the British intellectual milieu profoundly influenced later philosophical ideas and literary studies. These volumes are reproduced from the 1896 Centenary Edition of his collected works. Volume 5 contains his historical study on heroes and hero-worship

The book that established Thomas Carlyle's reputation when first published in 1837, this spectacular historical masterpiece has since been accepted as the standard work on the subject.

Rosenberg observes in his Introduction, The French Revolution is "one of the grand poems of [Carlyle's] century, yet its poetry consists in being everywhere scrupulously rooted in historical fact."
