The twelfth century chronicle of Jocelin of Brakelond recorded the achievements of Abbot Samson of the Monastery of St. Edmund in Edmunston. For Carlyle, the chronicle epitomized the virtues that modern England had lost. In the book, he first castigates the civilization around him, then partly retells, partly translates Jocelin's story. Dust jacket present.
