In his youth Ruskin saw things with a clarity of perception which was almost unprecedented. He was a poet and he had the gift of transmitting what he saw - in art, architecture, society and nature - with an eloquence which enslaved writers from Wordsworth to Proust and reformers from Tolstoy to Shaw. Lord Clark's brilliantly chosen and annotated anthology is perfectly designed to reintroduce this fascinating and complex figure to the modern reader. Extracts from his writings are grouped by subject with separate introductions to each, and Ruskin's own shrewd comments on himself are preceded by a note on his life and the pathetic story of his infantile relations with women.
