The French Revolution by Thomas Carlyle

Carlyle wrote his French Revolution as a secular ‘tract for the times’ and as a warning for his compatriots of the frightful consequences of materialism, utilitarianism and democracy. Scottish puritanism and German romanticism were his lodestars; ‘History is the essence of innumerable biographies’ was his historical creed. The result is not a work of scholarship but a prose epic, teeming with colourful scenes of dramatic events and imaginative portraits of the leading revolutionaries. The book at once captured the English-speaking world, and has, outside France, moulded popular conceptions of the French Revolution down to the present day.

Complete in three volumes: 1. The Bastille; 2. The Constitution; 3. The Guillotine.
