Life Of John Sterling by Thomas Carlyle

This biography chronicles the life of John Sterling, a lesser-known literary figure of the 19th century, exploring his intellectual pursuits, personal struggles, and the friendships that shaped him. The narrative delves into Sterling's quest for truth and meaning amidst the religious, philosophical, and social upheavals of his time. Through a series of letters, personal reflections, and accounts from those who knew him, the book paints a portrait of a man deeply engaged with the intellectual currents of his era, yet often at odds with himself and his health. The biography is as much a meditation on the challenges of leading a life of the mind in a turbulent era as it is a detailed account of Sterling's own endeavors, failures, and achievements.
