From the publisher
John Ruskin, author, art critic, architect, social commentator, was arguably the most influential Victorian of them all, with disciples ranging from Gandhi and Martin Luther King to Proust and Oscar Wilde. But his writings have been characterised as 'glorious words, but too many' and the volumes of his work can appear daunting. 'A Ruskin Alphabet' is the perfect pocket-sized introduction to the exhilirating energy of his thought, and provides a unique insight into Ruskin's life, works and loves. Entries range from Art to Zoology via Economics, Nature, the Pathetic Fallacy and much else. It appeals both to Ruskin scholars and to those just discovering the work of this multi-faceted genius. It is the essential pocket-sized book on Ruskin.
