Erin on 3/11/2019 10:22:56 AM. Thomas Carlyle writes inspiring and interesting books.
One of the most vital and pregnant books in our modern literature, Sartor Resartus is also, in structure and form, one of the most daringly original. Its underlying purpose is to expound in broad outline certain ideas which lay at the root of Carlyle's whole reading of life. But he does not elect to set these forth in regular methodic fashion, after the manner of one writing a systematic essay. He presents his philosophy in dramatic form and in a picturesque human setting
