Words of Wisdom: John Ruskin
John Ruskin was a great English critic of art, architecture, and society. He was also a highly gifted painter and a distinctive prose stylist. He was a kind of a Victorian Sage. His effective prose writings were fundamentally aimed at bringing cultural and social change. Ruskin was a great thinker who shared his thoughts freely with his readers and listeners. He was also gifted with exceptional powers of perception and expression. All these virtues enabled him to produce some of the finest prose pieces. The emphatic and precise diction enabled him to convey the message to his readers and listeners. His thought provoking ideas, statements, and remarks were often discussed among the scholars of the time. Several of his statements, remarks, and lines have become very popular quotations. The present collection has hundreds of such enlightening thoughts which are sure to entertain and enlighten the prospective readers.

Aesthetic and Critical Theory of John Ruskin
This book traces the sources and development of Ruskin's aesthetic and critical theories. In his attempt to skirt the danger of excessive emotion and association in art, Ruskin's struggle with the sublime but not the picturesque, is, along with the pathetic fallacy, examined. These concepts, too, are considered in light of Ruskin's continuing religious and intellectual development. Finally, Ruskin's loss of faith is analyzed in relation to the problem of allegory in art. Ruskin argued for an unchanging standard of beauty, though the psychological nature of the artist is related to his art medium.
