Preaching to the Unconverted by Kevin Jackson
| The Wallace Collection
John Ruskin preached a variety of lessons throughout his long life, from the importance of Turner to the wickedness of the profit motive, addressing a nation of avid readers who were by turns enthralled and outraged.
His teachings are still worthy of our attention but they are not always easy
to appreciate or even to understand. Kevin Jacksonâ€™s biography, The Worlds
of John Ruskin, aims to correct this by trying to explain in clear and
forceful terms how attractive, fascinating and challenging
Ruskin was and is, both as a man and as a thinker.
