Note Editore

Although John Ruskin is widely considered to have produced some of the greatest prose in English, there has been no extended study of how he learned to write or of the language with which he represents his learning. This book begins with the prodigiously inventive child who looks ahead to what he will achieve, and ends with the adult who looks to his past for proof that he has never been inventive. Far from a simple about-face, Ruskin's self-denial is a culmination and extension of the art that he mastered in youth, and it is one of the most remarkable acts of self-representation in all of Victorian prose. Drawing on Ruskin's own sources as well as on more recent directions in critical theory, Professor Emerson reveals the effects of early literary, familial, sexual and social experiences on the shaping of a major writer's identity.

Prefazione

John Ruskin was a prodigiously inventive child; yet as an adult he looked to his past for proof that he was never inventive. The history of this seeming about-face shows how early literary, familial, sexual, and social experiences affects artistic identity, and how authors (mis)represent their own past.
