Scottish writer, journalist, biographer and novelist. The eldest of nine kids, he was a prodigy and genius who attended university at age 14. Too independent to remain a teacher, he became a magazine writer. His first important publication was "The Life of Schiller," 1825. He wrote "Sartor Resartus" in 1836 and rewrote "The French Revolution," published in 1837, which brought his name to the forefront. He was elected lord rector of Edinburgh University in 1865 and after his wife's death in 1866, he wrote little of importance.

Carlyle made a tempestuous marriage to the gifted, strong-willed Jane Baillie Welsh, who published a collections of letters starting in 1883. He died on 2/05/1881, London.
