This extraordinary work is more like a film scenario than a modern history. Its flashes of lightning pick out and illuminate dramatic scenes, vividly portrayed, like King Louis' doomed flight to Varennes. Carlyle famously described 'the incorruptible sea-green Robespierre'. Carlyle acknowledges, contrary to convention, "there is no period to be met with, in which the general Twenty-five Millions of France suffered less than in this period which they name Reign of Terror." He praises the revolution as "Surely a great phenomenon: nay it is a transcendental one, overstepping all rules and experience; the crowning phenomenon of our Modern Time."
