Praeterita is one of the most remarkable autobiographies of the 19th century. Written by Ruskin in the 1880s between attacks of brain fever, it gives a fascinating account of his upbringing in a severely respectable Victorian household, his Continental travels, his friends and relations, and the development and refinement of his aesthetic tastes.
