The Genius of John Ruskin - Selections from His Writings (Paperback, New edition): John Ruskin The Genius of John Ruskin - Selections from His Writings (Paperback, New edition)
John Ruskin; Volume editing by John D. Rosenberg

No figure among the Victorians surpasses John Ruskin in magnitude of genius, modernity of message, or mastery of prose. Yet for the first half-century after his death in 1900, his genius lay largely undiscovered. First published in 1963, John D. Rosenberg's The Genius of John Ruskin aimed to make Ruskin's ideas and writings accessible to the modern reader, and it quickly became a classic. Long out of print, this important anthology is now available with a new foreword by Herbert F. Tucker and an expanded and updated bibliography by the author that takes into account recent Ruskin scholarship.

Born in London in 1819 as the only child of prosperous but possessive parents, John Ruskin was a sensitive, talented and observant boy who grew up to be the most significant anglophone art critic and social commentator of the late nineteenth century. His unfinished autobiography, Praeterita, was his last major work, begun in 1885 and written in the lucid intervals from a dementia which finally enveloped him completely until his death in 1901. Despite the circumstances of its composition, the book is written in the most luminous style which even the nineteenth century, that great age of English prose, can show. Praeterita is an account of childhood, boyhood and youth. It tells the story of Ruskin's early years, describing the formation of his taste and intellect through education, travels in Europe, and encounters with great works of art and artists - most famously his father's friend, J.M.W. Turner. All these experiences are set in the context of domestic life in pre-Victorian England, described in exquisite detail. But Praeterita is far more than a mere memoir.It is, to paraphrase Wordsworth, the story of a poet's mind, belonging with comparable works of non-fiction by Newman, Tolstoy and Henry Adams, and with fictional accounts of childhood by Dickens, George Eliot, James and Proust. This edition of Praeterita is accompanied by Dilecta, Ruskin's own selection from his letters, diaries and passages from other writings which throw further light on his memoirs.

""I was determined to change my life in accordance with the ideals of the book." --Gandhi on" Unto this Last"" One of the most influential political essays ever written, "Unto this Last "was one of the defining texts of British socialism and reading it was a decisive experience in the lives of Gandhi (who translated it into Gujarati) and Martin Luther King, among many others. Ruskin's lessons are as urgently needed today as ever, as his attack on the greed and short-termism of unbridled capitalism, and on the pursuit of money instead of true wealth, are every bit as inspiring and challenging as they were when it was published 150 years ago. A new introduction by Andrew Hill discusses the value of the essay in an age of credit crunch. A foreword by the Master of the Guild of St. George, Ruskin's association for social reform, sets out what Ruskinians today can do and are doing.
