Focusing on John Ruskin as a teacher and on his greatest educational work, Fors Clavigera, Sara Atwood examines Ruskin's life and writings to trace his varied roles in education, the development of his teaching philosophy, and his vision for educational reform. Her study is a valuable contribution to scholarship on Ruskin and the Victorian period and an enjoinder for us to reconsider how Ruskin's educational philosophy might be of benefit today.
