Excerpt from Sesame and Lilies, And, the King of the Golden RiverIN mere events Ruskin's life Offers little that is memorable.The main outline may be given very brie?y. John Ruskin was born in London, on the 8th Of February, 1819. His father was well Off and Of steadily increasing prosperity, a prosperity which became, in later years, really notable wealth. The boy's sur roundings were such as to encourage taste for literature and the arts. His father, though in business a wine-merchant, felt no little interest both in books and in pictures, and the boy Ruskin had no lack of opportunity to form his taste. His early home education in one respect had a great in?uence upon his later style. His mother, who was deeply religious - reminding us in this respect of the in?uence of Carlyle's mother - required him not only to read the Bible aloud, every word, from Genesis to Revelation, but required also that he should memorize long passages. This early familiarity with the noble English of the King James version, coupled with an acquaintance with the grand words of the liturgy Of the Church Of England, had no little effect, as we shall see later, upon Ruskin's own manner Of expression.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
