    On a writer's e mail loop I once mentioned something about Thomas Carlyle Another member then wrote that he liked Carlyle and that a copy of Hero Worship stayed on his nightstand for occasional re reading So when I felt a hankering to return to some Carlyle reading this was the book I chose The version I read was an e book

  2. says:

    Carlyle reads like a good scotch divine in small sips; nauseating in large gulps

  3. says:

    Carlyle is and always has been a man without a country An Scotsman at odds with the materialism of his native 19th Century Britain; a idealist nonetheless too British to happily fit among his Prussian cobelievers He is a rabid anti modernist but in the most modern way Carlyle is a hero to a new generation of reactionaries but the failings of his thought—very clearly on display in On Heroes and Hero Worship—show the limits of this moveme

  4. says:

    I abandoned this at the 40% mark I do not care for Carlyle's ugly bloated prose I don't like that he uses exclamation points than a teenage girl texting a friend to tell her she just saw Zac Efron at the mall I don't like that he seems to assume that Odin the Norse god was an actual person and I also don't like that he says stupid and manifestly untrue things like uackery could never give birth to a religion This book

  5. says:

    I Just wish the Carlyle hypothesis that in the next 100 of years Man will be smart enough not to acknowledge other man as GOD come true But than 100 years have past from his writing till today still there are still a lot of Human that believe other human as GOD How tragic where did all those brain and knowledge that they h

    Carlyle’s book looks at the different forms of heroism he considers to have existed in the world I found it very interesting that in the second chapter where he talks about the hero as a prophet he picked the Prophet Muhammad pbuh as the prime example Very interesting coming from a Scottish Christian I thought the book got a bit boring i

  7. says:

    Carlyle then goes to explore “Well where does this religion come from?” And again — by religion he means “systems of thought culture beliefs etc” — something like thatHis argument they come from heroes

  8. says:

    Not exactly a typical biography The book offers sketches of select individuals of historical significance in order to justify a neo he

  9. says:

    It's many years since I read any Carlyle probably not since my first year at university It's great to be reminded of his wonderful prose It's unorthodox dynamic kinetic full of allusions in many languages and yet somehow conveying something of the man himself opinionated warm very human Much of what he has to say seems simply wrong

  10. says:

    Carlyle you're a little nuts but I love you very much

reading So when I felt a hankering to return to some Carlyle reading this was the book I chose The version I read was an e book for the Nook by BR Samizdat ExpressI m glad I read it I don t feel that I understood it as well as I wanted to but I chalk that up to reading too often with distractions It took me a while to find what Carlyle s definition of a great man was a sincere man He discusses that in clear language in chapter 2 Maybe it was in chapter 1 and I missed it Yes Carlyle s premise is that a Great Man a hero is a sincere man a man who believes what he is doing is right One who isn t a uack that is a charlatan a man who knows what he is doing is wrong but does it anyhow to cheat or abuse people or even for his own entertainmentThe hero isn t like that Carlyle seems less concerned with what the hero actually accomplishes than if he is sincere in his pursuits For sure all the men he picked had accomplished much so maybe significant accomplishments is a precursor to making the sincereuack evaluation So he counts Mohammed the Moslem prophet as a hero because although Carlyle called his religion erroneous at least he was sincere in his belief of it and in how he spread it He called Napoleon a hero even though he obviously disagreed with his pursuits and outcomesIn fact Napoleon comes out worst of all the heroes in the lecturesbook while Oliver Cromwell comes out best Both of these men are in the final chapter the Hero as King Carlyle had been researching Cromwell and planning to write about him for years and would have that book to market less than five years after he prepared these lectures So Cromwell was much on his mind At that time Cromwell was consigned to the ash heap of English villains Carlyle thought differently and sought to rehabilitate him Cromwell could do no wrong in Carlyle s eyes It was his critics against whom Carlyle stood pretty much alone at that time who were blind or biasedThe book is fairly easy to read Although 170 years old the language is modern enough A good reader should have no problem with it It is an obvious must for anyone wanting to study Carlyle It is useful for anyone wanting to investigate the great man theory of history And it is a good read for anyone who wants to know about the men discussed in the book This isn t biography but it has biographical elements to it You learn something of the lives of Dante Shakespeare Luther Johnson etc The one hero I wish he had given biographical information on was John Knox his fellow Scott Alas I will have to look elsewhere for thatWhy four stars not five I m not uite sure The book disappointed me a little perhaps because of Carlyle s fawning over Cromwell and Mohammed Perhaps because his premises were not to my mind clearly stated at the beginning Perhaps it s because I don t fully subscribe to the great man theory of world history Perhaps it was a few formatting errors in the e book All of these have combined to cause me to take a star away But again
