5.0 étoiles sur 5 The best Carlyle by some distance. 21 novembre 2012

This was the book, written early in his career, that did most to make the name of Thomas Carlyle one of the greatest in English letters in the 19th century. Carlyle went very much out of fashion in the 20th century, and still is, but Sartor is his best work, one that can still be appreciated on many levels. The Victorians considered it a work of philosophy, but it can also be read as a spoof. It purports to be a study of the life and work of the "clothes philosopher" Prof. Diogenes Teufelsdrockh. Some reviewers were actually in some doubt as to whether the Prof existed or not, but to most readers it's obviously a spoof, especially when we find Teufelsdrockh sentenced to death by Napoleon, and later befriending the aforementioned despot. The many excerpts from Dreck's (as Carlyle referred to him in correspondence) writings show him to be a very extravagant and mystical type, influenced by German romanticism. Dreck's own spiritual journey from everlasting no/ centre of indifference/ everlasting yea shows him in the depths of existential despair, then finding God - or a sort of God, who at times seems closer to pantheism, at times a figment of Dreck's overheated imagination. But this element of the book was hugely influential, and had a powerful effect on many Victorians going through their own crisis of faith.

Throughout, "the editor" is passing comment on Dreck's writings, and wondering if he's just mad, and whether he's making things up or pulling his leg. At other times, he is deeply impressed by the Prof's vision. The reader is similarly kept on the edge of hilarity and gravity. One can recognize an insight and resonance in Dreck's writings, but can't really find him a reliable moral or philosophical authority. Then again, the editor sometimes reveals himself as owlishly (as Carlyle himself would put it) near-sighted in his analyses. This irresolubility is why Sartor is so much better than Carlyle's later works, where the Dreckish intensity is there, but without any attempt at perspective, so he's often just a ranting bigot, giving vent to his violently excitable nature. So this is the place to start with Carlyle, when he was at his intellectual peak, both a genuine searcher after truth and a pretty funny guy.

This is a gem; satirical, comic and profound, a rare combination. It takes a little time to get familiar with the writer's style and language but well worth the effort. I'm on my third reading.

This is really a book about writing a book -- a new kind of book. You read a summary of it, it is way out there.

Is confusing, disorganized, and pretentious I don't recommend this book to anybody. The only reason I got it is because it was a mandatory book in my class in college
