About this book


The multidisciplinary aesthetics of Walter Pater, the nineteenth century's most provocative critic, are explored by an international team of scholars. 'True aesthetic criticism' takes place working across the arts, Pater insists: acknowledging the differences between media, but seeking possibilities of interconnection.
