"Sartor Resartus is Thomas Carlyle's most enduring and influential work.

The French revolution : a history by Thomas Carlyle( Book )

746 editions published between 1800 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 6,609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. It combines a shrewd insight into character, a vivid realization of the picturesque, and a singular ability to bring the past to blazing life, making it a reading experience as thrilling as any novel. As John D. 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."

The life of John Sterling by Thomas Carlyle( Book )

161 editions published between 1850 and 2012 in English and held by 1,193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Carlyle undertook this biography of his friend, the British author John Sterling (1806 1844), because he was so dissatisfied with an earlier biography of Sterling by Julius Charles Hare. Sterling was an ordained curate at Hurstmonceux, but retired and began writing. His highest literary achievements were the articles he published in Blackwood's Magazine such as, The Onyx Ring and The Palace of Morgana. Carlyle's biography has since become a classic and is studied more as a work of Carlyle than the life of Sterling

Reminiscences by Thomas Carlyle( Book )

73 editions published between 1881 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,012 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

The French Revolution by Thomas Carlyle( Book )

144 editions published between 1190 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1837 Thomas Carlyle published his work The French Revolution: A History and overnight became a celebrity. The work was filled with a passionate intensity, hitherto unknown in historical writing. In a politically-charged Europe, filled with fears and hopes of revolution, Carlyle's account of the motivations and urges that inspired the events in France became powerfully relevant. Carlyle's style emphasized this, continually pointing to the urgency of action - often using the present tense. For him, chaotic events demanded 'heroes' to take control over the competing forces erupting within society. In Carlyle's view only dynamic individuals could master events and direct these energies effectively. As soon as ideological formulas replaced heroes and human action, society became dehumanized. As Ruth Scurr shows in her masterly introduction and through the texts she has selected from Carlyle's masterpiece of historical writing, The French Revolution needs still to be read for its relevance and as one of the finest examples of English prose writing ever

The early kings of Norway by Thomas Carlyle( Book )

40 editions published between 1875 and 2016 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Til about the Year of Grace 860 there were no kings in Norway, nothing but numerous jarls, - essentially kinglets, each presiding over a kind of republican or parliamentary little territory; generally striving each to be on some terms of human neighborhood with those about him, but, - in spite of 'Fylke Things" ) Folk Things, little parish parliaments), and small combinations of these, which had gradually formed themselves, - often reduced to the unhappy state of quarrel with them. Harald Haarfagr was the first to put an end to this state of things, and become memorable and profitable to his country by uniting it under one head and making a kingdom of it; which it has continued to be ever since. -- Excerpt Chapter 1, Page 9
