About this book

The multidisciplinary aesthetics of Walter Pater, the nineteenth century's most provocative critic, are explored by an international team of scholars. 'True aesthetic criticism' takes place working across the arts, Pater insists: acknowledging the differences between media, but seeking possibilities of interconnection.

Reviews

' Victorian Aesthetic Conditions does more than bring together some of today's top scholars in Pater studies. By conceiving of Walter Pater as a fulcrum for hybridic conceptions of art, aesthetics, and culture, the interwoven chapters present Pater and Victorian society in ways we've never seen before. This insightful, vibrant collection is destined to become required reading for all of us working in the field.' - Dennis Denisoff, Chair, Department of English Member, Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada
