"Set in the Second Century, A.D., against the backdrop of a Roman Empire on the verge of decline, Marius the Epicurean is the story of the philosophical and spiritual development of Marius, a young Italian serving as amanuensis to the great emperor Marcus Aurelius, Marius explores the various systems of philosophy in search of an elusive vision of love, moving from Epicureanism to Cyrenaicism and finally Stoicism before finding what he had sougnt in the terrible beauty of Christian martyrdom."--Publisher

93 editions published between 1896 and 2011 in English and held by 1,361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walter Pater (1839-94) was the foremost Victorian writer on art and on aesthetic experience. He brought his extensive knowledge of the history of art to bear on the new problem of how to explain the very personal affective response to beauty, and raised this into a central concern of aesthetic and philosophical thought. His ideas still shape modern assumptions about how art plays on our feelings and intellectual responses. Published alongside Pater's collected works of 1900-1, this collection reprints his essays from The Guardian, composed in the late 1880s. Pater turns to literary topics with these reviews of new editions of Wordsworth and anthologies of poetry, academic studies on Browning and on the English theatre, Mrs Humphrey Ward's novel Robert Elsmere and her translation of the philosopher Henri-Frédéric Amiel's private diary, as well as works by Edmund Gosse, Ferdinand Fabre and Augustin Filon

Studies in the history of the Renaissance by Walter Pater( Book )

44 editions published between 1873 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through his highly idiosyncratic readings of some of the finest paintings, sculptures, and poems of the French and Italian Renaissance, Walter Pater in Studies in the History of the Renaissance redefined the practice of criticism as an impressionistic, almost erotic exploration of the critic's aesthetic responses. Pater's infamous nullConclusion, null which forever linked him with the decadent movement, scandalized many with its insistence on making pleasure the sole motive of life, even as it charmed fellow aesthetes such as Oscar Wilde. This edition of Studies reproduces the text of the first edition of 1873. Matthew Beaumont's Introduction describes the cultural context that gave rise to the book, the reasons for its notoriety, Pater's philosophical outlook, and the arguments in his book. It explores Pater's work as an attempt to preserve the unique aesthetic of a work of art in the face of encroaching mass culture. The book also includes the later chapter on Giorgione as an Appendix, comprehensive notes that identify the many literary and artistic references, and a useful glossary of names. - Publisher

Originally published in 1878, this semi-autobiographical sketch by the eminent Victorian critic pioneered a new genre of writing: eschewing dialogue and traditional plotline, it is an impressionistic psychological portrait of a young man named Florian Deleal. It evokes the sights and sounds of the author's philistine childhood home
