The Sun Shines Fair on Carlisle Wall – Volume Two: Walter Scott to John Ruskin
An anthology of Carlisle in literature
Carlisle, with its troubled Border history, has played a larger role in English literature than most English cities.
Robert Anderson and Henry Hall Dixon both grew up in the city. Catharine Tate watched five of her children die within a month. John Ruskin felt the Solway was at the heart of his work. Together, their writings present a rich and varied picture of Carlisle in the nineteenth century.
