Reviews of Sartor Resartus (1834)

Review by eriksonmobile (2006-12-04)
That is no easy nightstand read - but if you like Thomas Pynchon, John Barth or a classic like Tristram Shandy you will have fun with this book. Although I do have to admit you probably either need a library or at least the internet in order to get all the refrences and puns. Thomas Carlyle wrote this in the 1830s yet one cannot help but feel the postmodernity of the work as the auther just plays with the reader...
