Collectively these papers reveal the extensive influence of Thomas Carlyle and Jane Welsh Carlyle in England, Scotland, Europe and the US. Individual essays cover topics such as vision and truth in Carlyle's histories, the reflective politics of Carlyle and Coleridge, the uses of German literature in the Carlyles' courtship, and Jane Carlyle's travel narratives. The contributors also consider the Carlyles in the contexts of feminism, race and politics. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
