Imaginary Portraits: With the Child in the House and Gaston de LaTour (Aesthetics Today) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Out of print for decades, the enchanting classics in this new edition will be welcomed by teachers and students of literature, art history, and aesthetics. Written by an esteemed nineteenth-century scholar of Renaissance art and literature, the "imaginary portraits" are fictionalized accounts of historic figures, with the search for a new aesthetic as the common thread. The Child in the House, out of print since 1904, appears in this treasured new edition, along with Gaston de Latour, an unfinished novel.

About the Author

Walter Pater (1839-1894) was an essayist, critic, and Oxford don. Renowned for his study of aesthetic poetry and his essays on the history of the Renaissance, he was a central figure in the Aesthetic movement that swept England at the end of the nineteenth century.
