        Thomas Carlyle | The Transcendentalists | U.S. History

        Essayist and historian Thomas Carlyle (1795 - 1881), who was born in Ecclefechan, Annandale. He studied arts and mathematics at Edinburgh University and became first a teacher and then a private tutor. He wrote numerous essays on various subjects but it was his translation of Goethe's 'Wilhelm Meister' in 1824 which made him popular among other literary figures such as Coleridge and Hazlitt. He continued to write and published his most famous book, 'The French Revolution', in 1837 despite the first manuscript being accidentally burned.
