Excerpt from The Growth of Sartor Resartus

A natural order of procedure will be to consider first the matter and manner of Sartor Resartns as a whole, and, after these general considerations, to descend to an inspection of the work, chapter by chapter, in its relation to the earlier essays. It is true that the more salient resemblances concern the set ting which Carlyle chose to give his thought, and that the de tails oi this'setting - as the use of the German professor as mouth-piece - appear full-grown in those essays nearly preced ing the appearance of Sartor itself. But in the second if the more tedious portion of this study there is abundant evidence that the author had been nursing his thoughts for years before they found utterance in his most characteristic work.
