The Storm Cloud Of The Nineteenth Century: Two Lectures Delivered At The London Institution February, 1884

John Ruskin

The Storm Cloud of the Nineteenth Century is a book written by John Ruskin, a renowned English writer and art critic. The book is a collection of two lectures that were delivered at the London Institution in February 1884. In these lectures, Ruskin discusses the social, political, and economic issues of the nineteenth century that were causing a storm cloud to loom over society. He critiques the industrial revolution and its negative impact on the environment, as well as the rise of capitalism and its effects on the working class. Ruskin also delves into the moral decay of society and the loss of traditional values, which he believes are contributing to the storm cloud. He argues that the solution to these problems lies in a return to nature and a focus on the spiritual aspects of life. Overall, The Storm Cloud of the Nineteenth Century is a thought-provoking analysis of the issues facing society during this time period, written by a prominent intellectual of the era.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
