Aug 01, 2004 · John Ruskin—our subject's grandfather—when he ran away with Catherine Tweddale in 1781, was a handsome lad of twenty. His portrait as a child proves his looks, and he evidently had some charm of character or promise of power, for the escapade did not lose him the friendship of the lady's family.

John Ruskin, "A Shipwreck" In both his professional life and his personal affairs, the great Victorian writer and critic John Ruskin felt himself a failure. When he delivered his lecture "The Mystery of Life and Its Arts" at the Dublin Exhibition Palace in May 1868, he was answering for both.2 Ostensibly addressed to an audience who had come. Feb 22, 2017 - John Ruskin 8 February 1819 – 20 January 1900 was the leading English art critic of the Victorian era, also an art patron, draughtsman, watercolourist, a prominent social thinker and philanthropist. He wrote on subjects ranging from geology to architecture, myth to ornithology, literature to education, and botany to political economy. Ten years later, in a moving lecture on “The Mystery of Life and Its Arts,” Ruskin reflected on his returning sense of the spiritual and transcendent. In The Queen of the Air 1869 he attempted to express his old concept of a divine power in Nature in new terms calculated for an age in which assent to the Christian faith was no longer automatic or universal. In 1911, the New York Times alerted its readers to the forthcoming 'authoritative' biography of Ruskin with the words 'out of a life's devotion to Ruskin and the Herculean task of editing the definitive Ruskin, Mr E. T. Cook is to give us a definitive Ruskin biography also. Ruskin took exceptional care in writing “The Mystery of Life”: he once said in conversation, “I put into it all that I know,” and in the preface to it when published he tells us that certain passages of it “contain the best expression I have yet been able to put in words of what, so far as is within my power, I mean henceforward both to do myself, and to plead with all over whom I have any influence to do according.

About earlier and later editions of the book containing the first two lectures alone, Ruskin wrote: ".chiefly written for young people belonging to the upper or undistressed, middle classes; who may be supposed to have choice of the objects and command of the industries of their life. if read in connection with “Unto This Last” it contains the chief truths I have endeavored through all of my past life to display. John Ruskin’s masterly prose begins by deploring the onset of the industrial revolu- tion and the malignance of free-enterprise. His main aim is to uplift his audience be- yond the cruelty and social injustice of his time to loftier vistas of perception and ethics.
