John Ruskin by James S. Dearden

Book Description

John Ruskin, one of the most prolific of nineteenth-century authors, first made a name as a writer on art with Modern Painters . His study of art and architecture in Britain and Europe led him to a consideration of the conditions of the people who lived in the same world as his art. His interests broadened to embrace social and political economy, and ideas which he propounded in such books as Unto This Last have had a profound effect on life today. William Morris, Bernard Shaw and many other socialists practised what Ruskin had preached. The effects of his teaching can be seen today in green belts, town planning, smokeless zones, the Rent Restrictions Act and the National Trust. Ruskin was truly one of the prophets of the nineteenth century. About the authorJames S. Dearden was educated at Bembridge School, Isle of Wight, where he had opportunities to absorb Ruskin s work and influence. He is a Companion of the Guild of St George and the Guild s director for Ruskin studies"
