Томас Карлейль Sartor Resartus: The Life and Opinions of Herr Teufelsdröckh

Томас Карлейль Sartor Resartus, and On Heroes, Hero-Worship, and the Heroic in History

Томас Карлейль Sartor Resartus


Literally meaning «The tailor re-tailored,» «Sartor Resartus» is Thomas Carlyle's 1836 novel which was first serialized in «Fraser's Magazine» in 1833-1834. The novel poses as a review for the work «Clothes, Their Origin and Influence» by the fictional philosopher Diogenes Teufelsdrockh, Professor of «Things in General» at Weissnichtwo University. Intended by Carlyle as a new kind of book, «Sartor Resartus» is at once a work of fiction and social philosophy that challenges the reader to determine what is truth and what is merely the invention of the author. The exploration of fashion through the fictional work discussed in the book exists as an allegory to explore the changing conventions of other elements of culture and society. «Sartor Resartus» marked an important transition from the Romantic and Victorian periods, whose influence on countless other literary figures cannot be understated.

Томас Карлейль Sartor Resartus


This extraordinary work is at one and the same time an account of a personal spiritual crisis and a hilarious spoof on academic learning, early Victorian values and materialism. In Sartor Resartus (‘the tailor retailored’) a fictitious editor retells the theories of an equally fictitious German professor who has come to the conclusion that human institutions and morals are only clothes to shield us from nothingness, clothes that can be changed as the whims of the age or fashion dictate.
This radically deconstructive vision reveals the very highest symbols of belief for what they are – merely symbols. How to believe in anything after such an insight is a question even more acute today than it was in Carlyle’s time, when he first asked it in this masterpiece of invention, parody and profound laughter.
This Canongate Classics edition incorporates illustrations by Edmund Sullivan, reproduced as they appeared in the 1898 edition of the text. Also included is the notable Emerson preface to the original American edition and an incisive, specially commissioned introduction from Alasdair Gray.
‘The character of his influences is best seen in the fact that many of the men who have least agreement with his opinions are those to whom the reading of Sartor Resartus was an epoch in the history of their minds.’ George Eliot
