Abstract

«I find that I have only now the power of ending this work, - it being time that it should end - but not of “concluding“ it; for it has led me into fields of infinite inquiry…». Those fields Ruskin will not be able to explore. In Praeterita, he recalls the places that gave birth to – and then nurtured – his interests in the arts, social issues and education. Starting from what he calls a “Turnerian topography”, Ruskin outlines his own topography of memory, which extends from the suburbs ofLondon to Scotland and then through the heartlands of Europe to his beloved landscapes of Italy and Switzerland.
