The editor’s introduction offers a useful contextualization of Carlyle’s work in relation to key debates and developments regarding historical and political discourse in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The task of current Carlyle scholarship, according to the editors, is to “examine more carefully the complexities, challenges, and depths” of Carlyle’s work. The essays in the volume succeed in this reappraisal quite well. This is a strong collection of essays on the whole, and is particularly valuable for the way it opens up new directions for Carlyle studies. I certainly recommend the volume to those interested in exploring the terrain of important new work on Carlyle. (Victorian Studies)
