PREFACE

"The King of the Golden River" is a delightful fairy tale told with all Ruskin's charm of style, his appreciation of mountain scenery, and with his usual insistence upon drawing a moral. None the less, it is quite unlike his other writings. All his life long his pen was busy interpreting nature and pictures and architecture, or persuading to better views those whom he believed to be in error, or arousing, with the white heat of a prophet's zeal, those whom he knew to be unawakened. There is indeed a good deal of the prophet about John Ruskin. Though essentially an interpreter with a singularly fine appreciation of beauty, no man of the nineteenth century felt more keenly that he had a mission, and none was more loyal to what he believed that mission to be.

While still in college, what seemed a chance incident gave occasion and direction to this mission. A certain English reviewer had ridiculed the work of the artist Turner. Now Ruskin held Turner to be the greatest landscape painter the world had seen, and he immediately wrote a notable article in his defense. Slowly this article grew into a pamphlet, and the pamphlet into a book, the first volume of "Modern Painters." The young man awoke to find himself famous. In the next few years four more volumes were added to "Modern Painters," and the other notable series upon art, "The Stones of Venice" and "The Seven Lamps of Architecture," were sent forth.

Dopo aver espresso le sue teorie estetiche in Pittori moderni (Modern painters, 1843-60), R. sviluppò le sue idee sui rapporti tra vita, arte, politica e società in due opere fondamentali: Le sette lampade dell’architettura (The seven lamps of architecture, 1849) e Le pietre di Venezia (The stones of Venice, 1851-53). Il graduale passaggio dagli studi sull’arte (in particolare sull’architettura) all’analisi delle sue relazioni con la realtà culturale e sociale condusse R. a muovere critiche aspre e sempre più esplicite alla civiltà industriale, alla quale contrapponeva, come esempio positivo,...
