Appreciations, with an Essay on Style

Walter Pater

General Description

Date: 1889
Genre: critical study

Scholarly Commentary


Although not as celebrated as his study of The Renaissance (1873), this book is almost as important a work. With respect to the study of DGR and the Pre-Raphaelite and Aesthetic Movements, it may be more important, not least for its two key essays, one focused on DGR, the other on Morris.

The essay on DGR was first published in Thomas Humphry Ward's collection of essays The English Poets in 1883.
