The collected letters of Thomas and Jane Welsh Carlyle  v. 1 ~ v. 42

General editor: Charles Richard Sanders

At the opening of volume 33, which covers letters written between August 1857 and June 1858, Jane Welsh Carlyle is in Scotland visiting relatives and Thomas Carlyle is at home in Chelsea, working daily under an awning in the backyard and struggling with the proofs of the first two volumes of History of Frederick the Great as well as with research for future volumes. Thomas was disturbed both by the Panic of 1857 and by news of the Indian Mutiny and the behavior of British troops in that part of the empire. He was fiercely critical of the politicians and civil servants who trumpeted the merits of "progress," "democracy," and "civilization" while governing India with often brutal and repressive policies. Meanwhile, Jane was reading an early work by a new writer named George Eliot, to whom she wrote a fan letter that began "Dear Sir," unaware that Eliot was in fact Mary Ann Evans, whom they had entertained in their home. In May, Thomas observed a gang of navvies, or day laborers, with picks and shovels, digging a foundation and uncovering ancient, gigantic bones. At the suggestion of paleontologist Richard Owen, the bones of the extinct Pliocene mammals-including a whale-were sold to a dealer to be ground into powder. During the same month, the separation of Charles Dickens and his wife, the former Catherine Hogarth, was the subject of many a conversation.

Duke University Press is again proud to publish a new volume in the series of the Carlyle letters. From reviews of previous volumes: 'The excellence of the Duke edition is confirmed by this latest volume. Its textual presentation is immaculate, its annotation helpful without fuss and lavish without irrelevance; and it is a beautiful book to handle and work with. You can't ask for more - except, of course, more of the same' - Daniel Karlin, "Times Literary Supplement". 'I have no doubt at all that this mammoth editorial task is very well worth doing, and it is being done extremely well. The Carlyles were extraordinary human beings and, as it happens, extraordinarily good letter-writers. Their letters give a uniquely valuable view not only of their life together, but also of the wider lives of all those, high and low, whom they attracted, repelled and - in the pages of their letters-impaled' - Rosemary Ashton, "London Review of Books".'These letters, new and old, reveal much about the lives, attitudes, and activities of the Carlyles, surely one of the most fascinating couples of the Victorian era' - Joel J.Brattin, "Nineteenth-Century Prose". 'Such is the charm and intellectual vitality of both Carlyles that one can dip into the letters almost at random and still be captivated' - "Nineteenth-Century Literature". 'So powerful were the Carlyles' skills of letter-writing that they still evoke, clearly, a part of everyday life in Victorian England better than any history could; and lace it with gossip and human trivia that give the casual reader or the serious student of Carlyle a truly three-dimensional picture of his and Jane's life' - Simon Heffer, "The Spectator". Volumes 1-26 of "The Collected Letters of Thomas and Jane Welsh Carlyle" are also available from Duke University Press. Indexes appear in volumes 4, 7, 9, 12, 15, 18, and 21.

The Collected Letters of Thomas and Jane Welsh Carlyle offers a window into the lives of two of the Victorian world's most accomplished, perceptive, and unusual inhabitants. Scottish writer and historian Thomas Carlyle and his wife, Jane Welsh Carlyle, attracted to them a circle of foreign exiles, radicals, feminists, revolutionaries, and major and minor writers from across Europe and the United States. Since 1970 twenty-eight volumes of the letters have been published, and the collection is regarded as one of the finest and most comprehensive literary archives of the nineteenth century. Notable items in this latest volume include Thomas's flirtatious exchanges with Lady Ashburton, the recent death of his mother, the improvement of his soundproof room, and his struggle to pursue his research for Frederick the Great. Other notable items include Dickens's dedication of Hard Times to Thomas and Thomas's support of G. H. Lewes during the scandal over Lewes's affair with George Eliot. The highlight of the volume is a passionate and humorous letter by Jane, subtitled Budget of a Femme Incomprise, in which she defends the rising cost of running their house.
