Thomas Carlyle

  • The extensive notes explain classical, literary, and historical allusions, and in many instances provide direct links to Carlyle's primary source volumes
  • The emphasis throughout allows readers uninterrupted access to Carlyle's text, while providing them with signposts to future reading and research
  • A select bibliography features a number of recent studies by Antonia Fraser, Mona Ozouf, Munro Price, Simon Schama, and Timothy Tackett that adopt "Carlylean" approaches in their treatment of the French Revolution
