Letters of Thomas Carlyle

Whatever one’s opinion of Thomas Carlyle is, he cannot be ignored because he was one the literary giants of Victorian England. His writings on history, literature, and current events, flawed as they were, still influenced many other writers of the day. He and his wife exchanged thousands of letters with their friends and acquaintances; to date 42 volumes of his letters are available online. Scrupulously edited, these online missives can be searched in a variety of ways and provide amazing insights into the literary workings of Victorian England.
