The Carlyle Letters



Victorianists everywhere will be delighted to hear that the Carlyle Letters are now available. This free resource incorporates the letters of both Thomas Carlyle and his wife, Jane Welsh Carlyle; between them, they corresponded with nearly every major figure of the age--in Britain, in America, and in Europe. Everything is available in full text. As a scholarly resource, the site shares in the scope of such projects as the Darwin Correspondence Project (warning: site very slow on the evening of 9/15). For an effort on what is currently a much smaller scale, see The Victorian Women Writers' Letters Project, which hosts a searchable database of the letters of Anna Jameson and Harriet Martineau.
