This collection enables the reader to follow the development of the nineteenth century's foremost critic of Romanticism: a man who may be seen both as the embodiment of a radical version of Romanticism and as the major and most original critic that Romanticism has produced. The early and decisive influence of Wordsworth's poetry on Ruskin's sensibility is lucidly revealed, and the outstanding contributions of his early and later theories are analyzed. Includes an Index.
(Key Words: John Ruskin, Harold Bloom, Literary Criticism, William Wordsworth, Pathetic Fallacy, Romanticism, Edmund Spenser, Sir Walter Scott, Alexander Pope, Homer, Dante).
