This book consists of essays on master historians including Thomas Babington Macaulay; Edward Gibbon; Thomas Carlyle; Jules Michelet; Alexis de Tocqueville; and other topics. The author underlines the importance of Marx's artful use of language, Carlyle's gift for capturing the flow of history in time, Gibbon's humor and his creation of a benevolent conspiracy between the reader and himself, Macaulay's ability to propel inert facts into motion, and the literary artistry of other great historians. The great historians created suspense, balanced background and foreground, and enabled readers to feel like actual participants in, as well as observers of, events large and small -- and at times acted as prophets and sages, opening up to their readers fresh, sometimes radical, views of the world and of man's place in it. The author describes what he sees as the threat to the art of narrative history brought on by the complexities of social history, and parodies the misplaced use of computer techniques in current writings; the works of truly great historians should be, he believes, not only part of a true education but also the source of great and continuous pleasure

After the Victorians : private conscience and public duty in modern Britain : essays in memory of John Clive by John Leonard Clive ( Book )
6 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The sons and daughters of the Victorian intelligentsia often claimed to have rejected their parents' political liberalism and domestic puritanism. But how much of this legacy did they really reject? Written by a team of eminent historians, these biographical essays explore how ten twentieth-century intellectuals and social reformers sought to adapt such familiar Victorian values as "civilization," domesticity," "conscience" and "improvement" to modern conditions of democracy, feminism and mass culture. Covering such figures as J.M. Keynes, E.M. Forster and Lord Reith of the BBC, these interdisciplinary studies scrutinize the children of the Victorians at a time when their private assumptions and public positions were under increasing strain in a rapidly changing world
