The True and the Beautiful (Barnes & Noble Digital Library): In Nature, Art, Morals and Religion

Author: John Ruskin E-book

This 1869 anthology of Ruskin’s oeuvre really does range as wide as its title suggests. Ruskin’s gaze encompasses plants, animals, the sky, rivers, the waves of the sea, the sculptors of ancient Egypt, the Renaissance painters, color and form, Shakespeare, Byron, Laurence Sterne, Sir Walter Scott, utopianism, romance, patriotism, education, and “The Holy Comforter” in poetry and prose.
