Cromwell miniatures of Thomas Carlyle Duke of Buccleuch, his wife and daughter by Eyre Crowe, 1895.
Carlyle was drawn to Cromwell because of their Protestant upbringing and biblical rhetorical style, as well as Cromwell’s “divine vitality of the universe, hostility to democracy, and belief that heroes can be agts of God’s will.”
Carlyle began writing with Cromwell in mind in 1840, but did not settle on Cromwell’s letters and speeches as the focus of a book until late 1843.
The first definitive statement that he would collect letters and speeches was in a letter to Edward FitzGerald on 9 January 1844, in which he proposed to “collect all Oliver’s letters and speeches and bind them in chronological order”.
Portrait Of Oliver Cromwell, Lord Protector (1599 –1658)
Carlyle was contemplating a biography of Cromwell and completed his initial work in October 1844 writing to FitzGerald on 8 February 1845 “Life must go on as long as it can”.
During the spring and summer of 1845, Carlyle added numerous notes full of notes and narratives to the collection, which in fact became the biography he intended to write.
The publication of the first edition helped Carlyle collect a large number of additional letters which he included in the second edition published in June 1846. The third edition of November 1849 was accompanied by more letters.
William Squire, a “practiced con artist”, forwarded thirty-five letters to Carlyle, purportedly written by Cromwell to Samuel Squire, a cornet and inspector in Cromwell’s army who in fact did not exist. William Squire wrote the letters himself. Believing them to be guineas, Carlyle published them in Fraser’s Magazine of December 1847. Their veracity was quickly challenged by critics such as John Bruce of the Camd Society, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Thomas Babington Macaulay and Bernard Bolingbroke Woodward. Carlyle included the letters in the third edition on the advice of John Forster and Edward FitzGerald, although he added a note in the appendix stating that they were “semi-romantic or doubtful documents in the history of Oliver”. In 1885, Samuel Rawson Gardiner discovered evidence that contradicted the claims contained in the Squire papers, although William Aldis Wright believed them to be true. Finally, Walter Rye discovers Squire’s history of deception, confirming that the letters were fake.

James Anthony Froude called it “the most important contribution to history” of the nineteenth century, explaining that “in Oliver himself we have a new vision of the Civil War and its aftermath”.
George Peabody Gooch wrote that “[Carlyle’s] proudest achievement in life was to recover the gland of one of his greatest sons. . . . The ‘Cromwelliad’ remains a wonderful production.”
The book influenced Transcdtalists and permeated American popular culture. John Brown modeled himself on Carlyle’s version of Cromwell. Oliver Cromwell (1599 – 1658) was an English military and political leader and later Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of England, Scotland and Ireland. Cromwell is one of the most controversial figures in history. The British Isles, considered a regal dictator by historians such as David Hume, a military dictator by Winston Churchill, but a hero of freedom by Thomas Carlyle and Samuel Rawson Gardiner and a revolutionary class by Leon Trotsky.
Http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oliver_Cromwell Thomas Carlyle (1795 – 1881) was a Scottish philosopher, satirist, essayist, historian and teacher during the Victorian era. He called economics “the dismal science”, wrote articles for the Edinburgh Encyclopedia and became a controversial social commentator. In his later writings, Carlyle sought to examine instances of heroic leadership in history. Oliver Cromwell’s Letters and Speeches (1845) presented a positive image of Cromwell: someone who tried to weld order out of the conflicting forces of reform in his day. Carlyle sought to bring Cromwell’s words to life in his own terms by quoting him directly, and then commenting on the meaning of those words in the turbulent context of the time. Again, the intention was to make the “past” “now” for his readers.
