Thomas Carlyle Resartus Fairleigh Dickinson University Press
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
One hundred and fifty years ago Thomas Carlyle was the intellectual gadfly whom many disagreed with but everyone read. Statesmen, philosophers, novelists, historians-anyone wrestling with the most vexed issues of modern life-had to come to grips with his writings. For much of the nineteenth century Carlyle was a prophetic voice-strong, bullying, passionate, and convincing; able to rouse his contemporaries to action and reform. This book reassesses Carlyle for a new generation in no less serious circumstances. Long before the phrase "sub-prime mortgage" came into vogue, Thomas Carlyle spoke eloquently and prophetically against the Gospel of Mammonism. Moreover, he recognized the threats to community that accompany a modern liberal society. Readers can now rediscover a Carlyle who challenges an increasingly self-absorbed culture, rails against the excesses of capitalist greed, teaches "Captains of Industry" to embrace a new kind of leadership, restores a meaningful connection to the past, and draws our gaze to genuine heroism. He champions the dignity of work, has much to say to those who would be leaders, and appeals for corporate reform in the name of love and community. The essays in this volume represent some of the most recent reconsiderations of the living legacy of Thomas Carlyle from both established and upcoming Carlyle scholars. Readers will have the opportunity to explore the richness of Carlyle's ideals, including the ones which challenge modern sensibilities the most. The essays examine carefully the complexities, difficulties, and contours of Carlyle's political and social vision. They also sample the breadth of Carlyle's thought, along with that of Jane Welsh Carlyle, his wife and fellow intellectual traveler, covering topics from political philosophy and cultural critique to education, historiography, biography, and the vagaries of editing.

In this fascinating new study Trev Broughton takes an in-depth look at the developments within Victorian auto/biography, and asks what we can learn about the conditions and limits of male literary authority. She focuses on two case studies from the period 1880-1903, the auto/biographical theories and achievements of Sir Leslie Stephen, one of the century's most revered exponents of the written life. the debate surrounding James Anthony Froude's account of the marriage of Thomas and Jane Welsh Carlyle The author looks at the proliferation of professions with a vested interest in the 'written life'; the speeding-up and institutionalisation of the Life-and-Letters industry; the consequent spread of a network of mainly male practitioners and commentators. She argues that these elements all contributed to a new 'auto/biographical' subjectivity. Men of Letters, Writing Lives will be of great interest to students and scholars of literature, cultural history, gender and auto/biography.
