The Collected Letters of Thomas and Jane Welsh Carlyle offer a window onto the lives of two of the Victorian world’s most accomplished, perceptive, and unusual inhabitants. Scottish writer and historian Thomas Carlyle and his wife, Jane Welsh Carlyle, attracted to them a circle of foreign exiles, radicals, feminists, revolutionaries, and major and minor writers from across Europe and the United States. The collection is regarded as one of the finest and most comprehensive literary archives of the nineteenth century.
In volume 31, which covers the year 1856, the Carlyles continue a rigorous correspondence, depicting and examining Victorian London as well as its inhabitants. They also return to their native Scotland and offer details of their travels in the Scottish Lowlands and Highlands.

"[N]otable not only for its editorial thoroughness but also for offering hitherto unpublished material."
--Susan Morgan, "Studies in English Literature, 1500-1900"
"[A] scrupulously edited, monumental edition. . . . Neurotic, complaining, self-absorbed and repetitive both Carlyles may be in their letters, but they are a pair entirely "sui generis," both in their way endowed with genius, and no better observers existed of Victorian London life, from that of the richest aristocrats to that of the poorest foreign refugees."
--Rosemary Ashton, "Times Literary Supplement"
