How did you find this letter? I would have burnt it, had I been Ruskin.He may have been a very bright man and a decent writer, but he was far from a sensitive human being. Winding clefts and dark places? oh dear. Poor Effie.
Well you know what they say, them that can do, do and those who can't, become art critics?Who knows what went on in Ruskin's head?
I think the letter comes from a fascinating recent find:http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=9&ved=0CDcQFjAI&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.rgu.ac.uk%2Fpressrel%2FTreasure%2520trove%2520find%2520of%2520Ruskin%2520letters%2520by%2520RGU%2520academic%2520of%2520historical%2520importance.doc&ei=HZ35TYuaNZGzhAeg3OSuAw&usg=AFQjCNEGi8WVgt2MjG1Op1gJUUh5cjlYuA&sig2=lMX6-9y_fUn2C24zdqXiBQ
