John Ruskin wurde am 8.2.1819 in London geboren und veröffentlichte bereits mit 15 Jahren Gedichte und auch Texte über Geologie. Die Bibel war ihm bestens vertraut und während ausgedehnter Reisen durch Britannien und auf dem Kontinent sammelte er viel Material für sein umfangreiches Werk. Von vielen wird er als der größte britische Kunst- und Sozialkritiker des Viktorianischen Zeitalters gesehen, und seine Arbeiten inspirierten die Kunst-, Handwerker- und Arbeiterbewegung. Wie in Diesem Letzten attackierte er heftig die schlimmsten Aspekte der Industrialisierung, förderte aktiv Kunsterziehung und den Museumszugang für die arbeitenden Klassen, und seine Prophezeiungen zu Umweltangelegenheiten waren damals so aktuell wie heute. George Elliot verehrte ihn als „einen der größten Lehrer seiner Epoche“ und sein Gesamtwerk beeinflusste das Denken Mahatma Gandhis, Lew Tolstois und Marcel Prousts. Ruskin starb am 20.1.1900 in Brantwood, Lancaster, und hinterließ unter anderem eine große Kollektion von Gedichten, Manuskripten, Fotografien, die die große Spannweite seiner Interessen und eigenen Leistungen widerspiegelte (Ruskin Library and Research Centre, 2011).
