A Carlyle Reader constitutes the most substantial one-volume presentation of representative writings of the great Victorian prose writer, historian, philosopher and social critic-Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881). It contains the full text of Carlyle's seminal work Sartor Resartus as well as the full text of five of his most influential essays. It also offers general selections from The French Revolution, Past and Present, On Heroes and Hero Worship, and the celebrated Coleridge chapter from The Life of John Sterling. In addition to offering a rich sampling of Carlyle in all his various literary manifestations, this volume enables the the reder to study Carlyle chronologically, the first entry being from 1823 and the last from 1876. The almost forty pages of introductory material provide a biographical overview of Carlyle's life, a presentation of his leading ideas and a discussion of his unique prose style. There is a bibliography of secondary writings and a chronology of Carlyle's life. Every section is preceded by an explanatory introduction by the editor.
