The Desire of My Eyes: The Life and Work of John Ruskin
This "tour de force of analysis" (Joel Agee) examines the life and work of the prolific, visionary writer, painter and critic. Kemp finds in Ruskin's life which spanned the same years as Queen Victoria's and thus embodied the Victorian era itself a faithful mirror of the history and psychological evolution of his age.
