from reviews of the previous volumes:

“I have no doubt at all that this mammoth editorial task is very well worth doing, and it is being done extremely well. The Carlyles were extraordinary human beings and, as it happens, extraordinarily good letter-writers. Their letters give a uniquely valuable view not only of their life together, but also of the wider lives of all those, high and low, whom they attracted, repelled and—in the pages of their letters—impaled.”—Rosemary Ashton, London Review of Books

“These letters, new and old, reveal much about the lives, attitudes, and activities of the Carlyles, surely one of the most fascinating couples of the Victorian era.”—Joel J. Brattin, Nineteenth-Century Prose

“Such is the charm and intellectual vitality of both Carlyles that one can dip into the letters almost at random and still be captivated.”—Nineteenth-Century Literature

“So powerful were the Carlyles’ skills of letter-writing that they still evoke, clearly, a part of everyday life in Victorian England better than any history could; and lace it with gossip and human trivia that give the casual reader or the serious student of Carlyle
a truly three-dimensional picture of his and Jane’s life.”—Simon Heffer, The Spectator
