Monday Class, November 5th

As I said in the email last week, this Monday we have a venerable Paterophiliac giving us an interactive look at Victorian art, and a counter-view of the Renaissance to Ruskin's. The Victorians had something of an obsession with the Renaissance and art (as we saw with Ruskin, for instance, and Dickens famous attack on Millais' Christ in the House of his Parents, raised in lecture, essentially assumed a Renaissance aesthetic), which found its most enduring expression, I would say, in the foounding in 1848, of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.

Again, Monday is also the scheduled day for the peer-review component on the Group Project; and we will also have class time dedicated for you to work on that project.

Also scheduled is an introduction to the estimable Charles Kingsley.
