    schema:description "The Genius of John Ruskin remains the only anthology that contains substantial portions of all Ruskin's major works. Rosenberg seeks to present an authentic portrait of Ruskin by stressing the five books that most richly display the temper of his mind: Modern Painters, The Stones of Venice, Unto This Last, Fors Clavigera, and Praeterita. Rosenberg has preserved the integrity of these works by presenting them in generous selections in the order in which they were written, and the collection thus offers a valuable study of the evolution of Ruskin's thought."@en ;
