CHAPTER XII
THE VICTORIAN ERA

His Heroes and Hero-Worship appeared first as lectures. Fifteen years of hard work gave the world his Histoiy of the Life and Times of Frederick II, commonly called Frederick the Great. Then came honours that would have rejoiced the heart of the father who had believed in his boy. Carlyle never forgot that father, and of him he wrote, " Could I write my Books as he built his Houses, walk my way so manfully through this shadow-world, and leave it with so little blame, it were more than all my hopes." What Carlyle looked upon as his greatest honour was his being chosen Lord Rector of the University of Edinburgh ; but the joy was taken away from him almost before he had tasted it, for he had barely finished his inaugural address before word was brought of the death of his wife. He lived until 1881, fifteen years after meeting with this loss. During the year before his death, a cheap edition of Sartor Resartus was issued, and 30,000 copies were sold within a few weeks. Carlyle had found his audience.
John Ruskin, 1819-1900. John Ruskin was a quiet, gentle little lad, who was brought up with books and pictures, and travel and comforts of all sorts, watched over by the most loving of parents, but instantly punished for the slightest disobedience. His parents, like Carlyle's, expected their son to be a clergyman. He grew up with the thought that he should be a preacher, and a preacher he was all his life, though he did not talk in pulpits but in books.
His earliest books were about art. Modern Painters was their name, and the first volume came out soon after he had taken his degree at Oxford. His text was the landscape painting of
