Sesame and Lilies - John Ruskin,  Deborah Epstein Nord (Editor) So far my favourite of ruskin's. I now understand why Proust translated this and bothered to write a long-ass preface (that is now separately published as 'on reading'). Of course this is pretty anachronistic stuff, but the writing is good - much simpler yet poetic compared to his earlier writings - and the basic spirit likely to appeal to a large audience.
