"A Study of a Nineteenth Century Idea." This classic work came about in an era when Carlyle's study of the French Revolution and political thought was sometimes held up as a cause of the Great War. His ideas about what makes the Great Man - the Hero - are examined in the context of Carlyle's own influences, including the late 18th century poets, writers and thinkers, as well as German philosophers.
