The word had no dramatic implication at that time, though it did involve a happy ending. The poem is the narrative of a journey down through Hell, up the mountain of Purgatory, and through the revolving heavens into the presence of God. In this aspect it belongs to the two familiar medieval literary types of the Journey and the Vision. It is also an allegory, representing under the symbolism of the stages and experiences of the journey, the history of a human soul, painfully struggling from sin through purification to the Beatific Vision+-+112933696632411666ocn049294037file18920.25Dante AlighieriThe divine comedyPoetry+-+390578856611612ocn049293866file0.25Dante AlighieriThe divine comedyPoetry11582ocn049293964file0.25Dante AlighieriThe divine comedyPoetry105851ocn000236926book18990.35Kipling, RudyardPlain tales from the hillsHistoryBiographyFictionShort storiesAnnotation90844ocn007686450book18830.66Carlyle, ThomasThe correspondence of Thomas Carlyle and Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1834-1872Records and correspondenceThe decade from 1820 to 1830 was a period of unusual dulness in English thought and imagination.

Norton was editor of the North American Review and a founder of the Nation. He was the leading American Dantist of his day, translating the Vita Nuova and the Divine Comedy in what became standard versions. He initiated art history in the college curriculum, organized the field of classical archaeology in the United States, and formulated what has come to be known in college courses as "Western Civilization."" "James Turner's biography offers the first full account of Norton's life and its significance, following him from his perilous travels across India as a young merchant to his role as his country's preeminent cultural critic - an American analogue to John Ruskin and Matthew Arnold, his close friends." "Most importantly, Turner shows how Norton developed the key ideas that still underlie the humanities, historicism, and culture and how his influence endures in America's colleges and universities because of institutions he developed and models he devised. Drawing on nearly a hundred archives in the United States, Britain, and Italy, The Liberal Education of Charles Eliot Norton reveals a new picture of the beginnings of the humanities in American higher education."--Jacket+-+52961365352653ocn137331409book20070.81Dowling, Linda CCharles Eliot Norton : the art of reform in nineteenth-century America"Author, translator, social critic, and Harvard professor of art, Charles Eliot Norton was widely regarded in his own day as the most cultivated man in America. In modern times, by contrast, he has been condemned as the supercilious representative of an embattled patrician caste. This revisionary study argues that Norton's genuine significance for American culture and politics today can only be grasped by recovering the vanished contexts in which his life and work look shape. In a wide-ranging analysis, Linda Dowling demonstrates the effects upon Norton's thought of the great transatlantic humanitarian reform movement of the 1840s, the Pre-Raphaelite and Ruskinian revolution in art and architecture of the 1850s, and the surging liberal optimism that emerged from the Civil War. Drawing on numerous deleted passages from Norton's manuscript journals, Dowling probes beneath the imperturbable mask of the public Norton, bringing to light the elusive private man." "Returning from Europe in 1873, bereft of his wife and stripped of his religious belief, Norton was compelled to confront the painful contradictions within his own liberal political faith. In a land given to celebrating freedom of speech, Norton would become a speaker subjected to physical threats for opposing the Spanish-American War. Among a people given to glorying in its superiority to other civilizations, he would become a social critic reviled for arguing that the nation was failing to live up to its own most cherished ideals. It would be Norton's misfortune, shared with others of his generation, to watch the golden promise of a victorious war for the Union fade into the unrepentant cynicism of the Gilded Age. Yet Norton's militant idealism and heroic citizenship, Dowling argues, survive now as a vital parable for American civic liberalism in the present day."--BOOK JACKET+-+31910193061453ocn082172631book20070.84Stebbins, Theodore EThe last Ruskinians : Charles Eliot Norton, Charles Herbert Moore, and their circleExhibition catalogs"Though the eminent nineteenth-century British critic and watercolorist John Ruskin never set foot in the United States, his writings were widely read here. American artists eagerly took up his call for the meticulous depiction of nature and the preservation through copying of some of the finest works of civilization before time or misguided restoration overtook them. His influence was disseminated by the legendary Charles Eliot Norton, the nation's first professor of art history, who taught at Harvard from 1874 to 1898, and by Norton's protege Charles Herbert Moore. The Last Ruskinians is the catalogue of an exhibition that traces Ruskin's impact on these teachers, their students, and many other artists and collectors." "The works represented here include floral studies, landscapes, architectural details, views of Venice, and copies after ancient, medieval, and Renaissance art. Most are in watercolor, Ruskin's favorite medium. Included are ten works by Ruskin himself, all drawn from the Harvard collections, and twice as many by his friend Moore, a Harvard drawing instructor and the Fogg Art Museum's first director."--BOOK JACKET+-+79962264361423ocn002393070book19270.86Stephens, KateA curious history in book editing, inclosing letters of the senior editor, Charles Eliot Norton1004ocn002079154book19120.90Emerson, Edward WaldoCharles Eliot Norton : two addresses314ocn016122121book18980.92Hoar, George FrisbieQuality of our honor Senator Hoar speaks eloquently of real Americanism, replies to Prof. Norton's pessimism, pays tribute to the heroism of Worcester soldiersSermons181ocn030629217book19930.93Cohn, Marjorie BTurner, Ruskin, Norton, WinthropExhibition catalogs82ocn038505710book19140.96Howe, M.
