Description

From the Foreword: "The following chapters have been written not only as an interpretation on important sides of two great and related literary personalities of the Victorian Era, but also as a contribution, however slight, to the history of social thought in England during a critical period. The writer would fain hope that the challenging message of these prophets, delivered in a time of profound transformations in the structure of society, might not be without inspiration and guidance for our own day, a day even more fraught with unrest and uncertainty, when men everywhere are listening for authentic voices that shall speak counsels worthy to be followed. For the social philosophy of Carlyle and Ruskin is not a matter of academic interest for a few leisured scholars and book-lovers alone. It is rather a trumpet-call to workers, old and young, workers alike with hand and with brain, - to put forth their utmost efforts, in the midst of the present confusion, for the purpose of effecting an ordered revolution of our industrial system, so that civilization in reality may become what for generations at least it has not been, - 'the humanization of man in society.'" Contents include: The New Age -- Sansculottism and Its Prophet -- The New Chivalry of Labor -- Master and Disciple -- The Apostle of Art and the Modern World -- The Art Impulse in Industry and the New Political Economy -- The Sword of St. George -- Heralds of the Better Order -- and more.
