Pr terita is perhaps the best-loved of all the fruits of Ruskin's many-sided and tormented genius. This exceptional biography—the first of Ruskin's works in the Whitehouse edition—simultaneously presents a deeply reflective portrait of an early 19th-century Protestant family—its genuine piety, its severities, its suffocating possessive affections—and the product (at once intellectually brilliant and emotionally damaged) of its educational system.
