The Works of John Ruskin on CD-ROM CD-ROM Summary


The Works of John Ruskin on CD-ROM CD-ROM: The Library Edition by John Ruskin

At the beginning of the twentieth century one of the greatest literary editions of all time was published: Cook and Wedderburn's 'Library Edition' of The Works of John Ruskin (1903-1912). The Library Edition is a major resource for those interested in all aspects of nineteenth-century culture, including literature and economics, art and architecture, science and religion; but today the Library Edition is both expensive and difficult to obtain. Now general access to Ruskin's complete works is made possible through this attractively presented CD-ROM version. Here the reader can navigate rapidly and search accurately through the entire text (which is four times the length of the Bible) and almost 1,000 full-page plates - an incomparable teaching and research resource. This enables you to retrace the kind of movement between texts and images which characterises the associative mind of Ruskin himself - a brilliant polymath.

The Works of John Ruskin on CD-ROM CD-ROM Reviews


'This half ounce disk reveals more than the 1,800lb of ink used for the printed edition. Outlandish and sensitive, it is an admirable companion to Cambridge's CD-ROM of Johnson's Dictionary.' Daily Telegraph
'Cook and Wedderburn's magnificent index is supplemented by a new and extremely impressive electronic one which greatly speeds up the search process. The whole text is interrogable, and there is the concept operator which generates terms statistically related to a quest word, both of which allow means of understanding the mind of a genius in ways paper cannot provide.' Peter Davey
