The French Revolution
By (author) Thomas Carlyle
French Revolution by Thomas Carlyle
Book DescriptionThe book that established Thomas Carlyle s reputation when first published in 1837, this spectacular historical masterpiece has since been accepted as the standard work on the subject. It combines a shrewd insight into character, a vivid realization of the picturesque, and a singular ability to bring the past to blazing life, making it a reading experience as thrilling as any novel. As John D. Rosenberg observes in his Introduction, The French Revolution is one of the grand poems of [Carlyle s] century, yet its poetry consists in being everywhere scrupulously rooted in historical fact. This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition, complete and unabridged, is unavailable anywhere else."
