Google full text of this book:

How does Carlyle, Macaulay, Newman sustain the values of old traditions and at the same time meet the challenge of contemporary Victorian experience is the subject of Professor Levine's book. Like the novelists of the period upon whom they had great influence, these three writers were seeking stability and permanence in an age of tremendous change. They were trying to sustain the values and order of old traditions and at the same time meet the challenge of contemporary Victorian experience. How each one met this challenge is essentially the subject of Professor Levine’s book. The author begins with a close analysis of the style and structure of the writers’ key works, essentially dissimilar in nature, then moves on to an exploration of what they had in common.

Originally published in 1968.
