(p.325) Afterword
Pater the Classicist

Stephen Bann

Oxford University Press

This Afterword reflects further upon some widely differing aspects of Pater’s engagement with the Classics, as discussed throughout the volume. It involves his connections to his old school, King’s Canterbury, as revealed in documents held in the school archives. It touches on his Oxford reputation, with regard to unpublished correspondence of his biographer, Thomas Wright. It also addresses the reception of his works by contemporary figures, such as the art historians Bernard and Mary Berenson and the novelist Florence Montgomery, who copiously annotated her copy of Marius the Epicurean. A possible visual source for his ‘Apollo in Picardy’ is discussed, together with a previously unknown translation, possibly by Pater, that may throw light upon the composition of that important essay.

Keywords:   humanism, feminism, transhistoricality, Canterbury, Oxford, Picardy
