He imagines himself as a kind of all-knowing historical Eye, which roams above the scenes and, like a camera, picks out salient ones for the reader to visualise: Which event successively is the cardinal one; and from what point of vision it may best be surveyed; this is a problem. And, in spite of many difficulties and hagglings, they actually get on march, from Moscow, 25th December, ; and creep on, all Winter, through the frozen peats wildernesses, through Lithuania, Poland, towards Bohmen, Mahren: are to appear in the Rhine Countries, joined by certain Austrians; and astonish mankind next Spring. Gay mansions, with supper-rooms and dancing-rooms, are full of light and music and high-swelling hearts; but, in the Condemned Cells, the pulse of life beats tremulous and faint, and bloodshot eyes look out through the darkness, which is around and within, for the light of a stern last morning.

Carlyle sees history as the operation of various forces, not economic or political as modern academic historians do, but symbolic forces. All heroes will be flawed. However, for Carlyle, unlike Aristotle, the world was filled with contradictions with which the hero had to deal.
