During his lifetime Thomas Carlyle was regarded as a plain-speaking, if somewhat irascible, prophet; a larger-than-life figure whose fame and influence rivalled even that of Lord Byron’s. But... More > if Carlyle’s reputation as a prophet and as an historian steadily declined in the years that followed his death, his bon mots remain as fresh, entertaining, and as scathing as ever. His sharp tongue (which was matched only by that of his wife’s), was unleashed on anyone, friend or foe, who aroused his displeasure, and upset as many of his more mealy-mouthed Victorian contemporaries as his published work made him admirers. The Sayings of Thomas Carlyle sees the ‘Sage of Chelsea’ in full flight, and his pungent reflections on politics, life, and those around him, show that while political and economic theories come and go, simple spleen can stand the test of time. Selected and with an introduction by Brendan King< Less

Latter-Day Pamphlets was a series of "pamphlets" published by Thomas Carlyle in 1850, in vehement denunciation of what he believed to be the political, social, and religious imbecilities... More > and injustices of the period. The book, which at one point vindicated slavery, failed to gain the approval of the Victorian public, and is often seen as a negative turning point in Carlyle's career. The best known of the essays in the collection is Hudson's Statue, an attack on plans to erect a monument to the bankrupted financier George Hudson, known as the "railway king". The essay expresses central theme of the book — the corrosive effects of populist politics and laissez faire capitalism. Carlyle also attacked the prison system, which he believed to be too liberal, and democratic parliamentary government. The imaginary figure of "Bobus", a corrupt sausage-maker turned politician, is used to epitomise the ways in which modern commercial culture saps the morality of society.< Less
