After Ruskin

Stuart Eagles

Ruskin considered himself ‘a violent Tory of the old school’ yet also a ‘communist’. Difficult to categorize politically, he differed from,almost as much as he shared in, the progressive politics of the generation which followed him which he helped to inspired. Building on existing studies of Ruskin's influence and legacy, this study identifies a wide range of individuals he inspired, and explains their significance in terms of the different institutions and organisations in which they gathered to effect the social, civic and political reforms he inspired, rooting Ruskin's legacy geographically and culturally in late nineteenth and early twentieth-century Britain.

Keywords:   Ruskin, influence, historiography, geography, institutions, organisations, progressive, political economy, social reform, civic reform
