Description

This study traces the history of Thomas Carlyle's interest in Cromwell from the 1820s through publication of his edition of letters and speeches in 1845. It considers Carlyle's skills as historian by analyzing his use of available sources, his accuracy, and his editorial techniques. It also traces the history of Cromwell's reputation in 19th-century history and literature, the extent to which Carlyle was influenced by prior writing, and the effect his own work had on subsequent historians and on the general public for whom he wrote.
