Professor Teufelsdrockh, at the period of our acquaintancewith him, seemed to lead a quite still and self-contained life: a mandevoted to the higher Philosophies, indeed; yet more likely, if hepublished at all, to publish a refutation of Hegel and Bardili, both ofwhom, strangely enough, he included under a common ban; than to descend,as he has here done, into the angry noisy

I had read some reviews, so I was not surprised to find the plot unusually complex.
My take of the main message is that "reality" is infinite, and humans can only conceive of finite "symbols" that represent parts of the infinite.

NB: I cannot review this book properly because I have not yet read it, but I give it a middling rating because I know Carlyle to be a stimulating writer. I am EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED with this purchase. The text is very, very small and difficult to read, and it does not respond to a larger font setting, being some sort of photocopy, not a scan or copied electronic text. (I have pretty good sight, but it is very tiring to read.) There are underlinings, marginal comments, etc. that do not enhance the experience. After skipping the long introduction, I tried to start the actual text - and found that the first 3 pages were mostly missing: evidently torn, scrunched or folded over. Looking ahead I found several more blurs and blotches on the next few pages. At this point I gave up. I think AMAZON owes me a FULL REFUND (or the supply of a proper, clean, complete and readable text from another edition or scanned adaptation, and an APOLOGY. This particular item should be removed from its offer: selling it in this condition is simply dishonest.

I stumbled on this outstanding work and have devoured it in one long long read. It could have been written only yesterday in its commentary on the human condition. Carlyle skewers and roasts the establishment, the church in its guises and fashion. Yet, he displays a great empathy for the have nots and withering contempt for the wealthy, particularly, inherited wealth. Here is an author, sure footed at the top of his game. He now joins my relatively short list of authors such as JP Donleavy, Rabelais,,Pynchon, Spike Milligan et al. I RECOMMEND that it be read whilst dressed in your red leather one piece and ocelot dressing gown.

Even taking into consideration the small print of this edition, the book is not an easy book to read. But it is well worth the effort.

Timothy Leary said of Salvador Dali that he was the only artist who could paint LSD without having taken LSD.

Thomas Carlyle was able to write LSD without having taken LSD!

The chapter titled 'Super Naturalism' must have influenced those Victorians like the first time we ever saw CGI in a film and were dazzled.

The fist man in the West to talk of the illusion of time, to tell the reader that Newton is superseded and that death is a persistent illusion was Thomas Carlyle.

I am staggered by parts of this book. Much is dated, and much is bilge, but some passages are the most ecstatic writing ever to grace the English language.

The basis of SARTOR RESARTUS is Carlyle's profound disgust with the materialism of his age. He also mistrusted science as he makes clear with his barbs at science. His hostility to what he considered the soul-destroying forces abroad in his age makes him seem quite like an Old Testament prophet of doom. The book is a disguised spiritual autobiography, whose title he took from a line in Swift's "Tale of a Tub.' (What is man himself but a microcoat?) Carlyle pretends to be the commentator on and the expositor of the philosophy of an eccentric German professor, Diogenes Teufelsdrockh (Devil's Dung), who is concerned with the philosophy of `clothes, their origin and influence.' Under this guise, he points out the difference between things as they seem and things as they are. The book is a denial of corporal reality and an exposition on the falsity of appearances of things. The shams of civilized life are the decorated robes with which the world conceals its soul. The divine principle is hidden. His purpose is to whisk away this robe to reveal the divinity of God. Those who deny God and who have no faith in the spirit, give `the Everlasting NO' to life; those who accept God say `the Everlasting YEA.' From man, he carries the image of the clothes-sham to the larger meaning of the universe. Time and space are the clothes which hide from us the true meaning of the universe. Science is worse than useless to reveal divinity to man since it negates the existence of the miraculous by pretending that mere labeling and repetition can make a miracle seem ordinary.

Reading Carlyle today is no easy task, partly due to the stilted language he prefers, and partly to the metaphorical style of his clothes imagery. Yet, his assertion that all men must choose to confront the divinity of God or face what to Carlyle was the horror of nihilism still has relevance for the modern reader who may ponder the very same thing.

From the correspondance of T.H. Huxley:
"...when I look back, what do I find to have been the agents of my redemption? The hope of immortality or of future reward? I can honestly say that for these fourteen years such a consideration has not entered my head. No, I can tell you exactly what has been at work. Sartor Resartus led me to know that a deep sense of religion was compatible with the entire absence of theology. Secondly, science and her methods gave me a resting-place independent of authority and tradition. Thirdly, love opened up to me a view of the sanctity of human nature, and impressed me with a deep sense of responsibility."
I couldn't put it better. This is one of the books that makes life worth living.
The greatest neglected book in cultural history, endlessly complex, subtle, always self-critical, ironic, mysterious, beautiful and powerful. Not a book to read through from beginning to end, but one to dip into, explore, examine from different angles. As in the book itself, the so-called Editor attempts to piece together the shards of the hero Teufelsdrockh's identity, so the reader needs to enter this book in-medias-res, striking into its magical maze of ideas.
