9780813917894: The Genius of John Ruskin: Selections from His Writings (Victorian Literature and Culture Series)

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.

About the Author:

John D. Rosenberg is the William Peterfield Trent Professor of English at Columbia University and the author of the award-winning Ruskin biography The Darkening Glass, among other books. Herbert F. Tucker is Professor of English at the University of Virginia.

Review:

Teaching anthologies belong to an ephemeral genre, yet among them The Genius of John Ruskin has become that rare thing, a classic.



We can hardly do better than Rosenberg's collection, with its balance of esthetic, social, and background material.

(New York Review of Books)

An impressive―and even for jaded palettes―surprisingly readable set of selections. Rosenberg's incisive yet sympathetic introductions provide groundlines for orientation to the generous selections.

(Library Journal)

A comprehensive selection for the modern reader from the great mass of Ruskin's works, conveying the remarkable range of his thought and powers of expression. Professor Rosenberg's introduction and comments are models of contemporary interpretation and understanding.

(Times Literary Supplement)
