Sartor Resartus

Sartor Resartus

Editorial Apparatus

Thomas Carlyle once described Sartor Resartus as “a Satirical Extravaganza on Things in General,” and the book has both inspired and confounded readers since its initial publication in 1833-34.  Engaging with philosophy, theology, political economy, aesthetics, history, and science, Sartor Resartus in many ways defies classification. Tracking the volume's rich source base, cultural references, and biographical context, this edition of Sartor Resartus seeks to orient contemporary readers even as it highlights Carlyle’s interest in a disorienting reading experience–one that might open the door to alternative ways of thinking and communicating.
