John Ruskinby Joan Evans
One of the best of the Ruskin biographies, by the eminent medievalist and art historian. Dr. Evans, who has edited the diaries of Ruskin, has used them extensively in this study. Besides this new material, she has been able to use the facts which in late years have come to light concerning Ruskin's marriage and annulment. Between the personal side of Ruskin's life and his public career Dr. Evans has kept a just balance, and her book is a definitive study of this eminent Victorian. Illus. This title is cited and recommended by Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature.
