Sometimes, indeed, on a fine evening, & when I have quenched my thirst with large potations of Souchong, I say to myself-away with despondency-hast thou not a soul and a kind of understanding in it? (eL, I, pp. 127-8) 4 The Carlylean Weltbild: Natural Supernaturalism Carlyle has many things to say about German philosophy, literature, and culture, and in his letters and writings one can trace his growing interest in and complete commitment to them. He often speaks of the effect that the German writers had on him, and it soon becomes clear that he found in their writings something that was, indeed, not doctrinal; it was something that simply struck a responsive chord in his own troubled soul.

His warm response to the Book of Job is clearly based largely on his sympathy for the sufferer, whose stoicism and faith in a righteous God reflect much of Carlyle's own thinking; however, there is also in the Book of Job a recognition of the Author of the Universe, 'Which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and sealeth up the stars; Which alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea; Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south' (9:7-9).
