The book The French Revolution 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."
The French Revolution is an excellent addition to your vintage Modern Library collection or home library.
