ABSTRACT
The article focuses on two books "Thomas Carlyle," by Julian Symons and "The Buried Life," by Gordon N. Ray. The embarrassingly rich documentation available for Carlyle's life made possible D.A. Wilson's vast standard biography and has also been a boon for glib psycho-pathological theorizers. The present volume is a gesture toward meeting this need, which of course is a pretty large order. Symons has not quite filled it because, despite a fine sense of proportion, he concerns himself primarily with the man and only incidentally with the writer, the thinker and the age.
