Ezekiel is Carlylean
Ezekiel is Carlylean. There's a wild, rugged, and abrupt sternness in Ezekiel. He stands midway between the majestic sublimity of Isaiah and the elegiacs of Jeremiah.
—Dr. John Duncan, Colloquia Peripatetica.
Ezekiel is the wild soothsayer: a genius of the cavern, whose thought is best expressed by a beast-like growling. But listen... Isaiah refuses civilization; Ezekiel accepts it, yet transforms it. Nature and humanity blend together in that softened roar which Ezekiel utters.
—Victor Hugo, William, Shakespeare (II).
