Description

Excerpt from Thomas Carlyle: His Life His Books His Theories Besides being, as he styles himself, a Writer of Books, he is the most notable Talker of the generation. Never, says Mr. Milburn, the blind preacher, had I any idea of what eloquent talk meant until I listened to Carlyle. Of his table talk Mr. Milburn has given some examples, trea sured up in a memory which, quickened by his infirmity of vision, enables him to reproduce word for word the whole of a long conversation or dis course. From the lips of the blind preacher we have written down many pages of this table-talk, some of which, mainly autobiographical, will be here given. The life of Carlyle, however, is his writings, and mainly from these we propose to endeavor to set forth what kind of work he has done, and what manner of man he came to be.
