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

790 editions published between 1800 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 9,359 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."--Publisher
On heroes, hero-worship, & the heroic in history by Thomas Carlyle( Book )

606 editions published between 1840 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 5,523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on a series of lectures delivered in 1840, Thomas Carlyle's On Heroes, Hero-Worship, and the Heroic in History considers the creation of heroes and the ways they exert heroic leadership. From the divine and prophetic (Odin and Muhammad) to the poetic (Dante and Shakespeare) to the religious (Luther and Knox) to the political (Cromwell and Napoleon), Carlyle investigates the mysterious qualities that elevate humans to cultural significance. By situating the text in the context of six essays by distinguished scholars that reevaluate both Carlyle's work and his ideas, David Sorensen and Brent Kinser argue that Carlyle's concept of heroism stresses the hero's spiritual dimension. In Carlyle's engagement with various heroic personalities, he dislodges religiosity from religion, myth from history, and truth from "quackery" as he describes the wondrous ways in which these "flowing light-fountains" unlock the heroic potential of ordinary human beings."
Past and present by Thomas Carlyle( Book )

517 editions published between 1843 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 4,602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With England in the grip of a serious economic downturn, Carlyle in Past and Present (1843) looked to the supposed virtues of the past in order to illustrate how unfettered capitalism had brought the country to the brink of ruin, hoping in this way to spark a moral no less than economic resurgence

The life of John Sterling by Thomas Carlyle( )

161 editions published between 1850 and 2012 in English and held by 3,266 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

Heroes and hero worship by Thomas Carlyle( )

94 editions published between 1800 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 2,112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What trait defines a hero? For Carlyle, it's absolute sincerity, firm belief in one's principles, and an inherent spark of the Divine.

The early kings of Norway by Thomas Carlyle( )

43 editions published between 1875 and 2017 in English and held by 2,096 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

Reminiscences by Thomas Carlyle( Book )

106 editions published between 1881 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,232 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
