The Collected Works of Walter Pater Gaston De Latour

Volume 4

Edited by Gerald Monsman

Collected Works of Walter Pater Series

  • The first critical edition of Walter Pater's unfinished and posthumously published novel, Gaston de Latour
  • The Collected Works of Walter Pater preserves the integrity of Pater's revisions and arrangements of his writings, augments his uncollected essays and fiction, and brings together, for the first time, all of his literary journalism and academic studies, his extant correspondence, and transcriptions of his manuscripts
  • One of the first volumes in the Collected Works; the other is Imaginary Portraits, edited by Lene Ostermark-Johansen
  • Textual variants reveal to the reader how and when Pater revised his text, and the patterns of his creative editorial decisions
  • Key background information is coherently, and thoroughly, presented; all phrases and quotations in French, German, Greek, and Latin are translated
  • Includes an overview of French Renaissance cultural and political issues; a chronology of his life; a history of the book's publication; and interpretive commentary
  • A thorough index guides readers interested in Pater's prose as it relates to art history, ancient history, Victorian culture, and literary theory
  • Crucial for Pater scholarship, expanding the ways in which Pater will be read and taught
  • An exceptional contribution to later Victorian intellectual and cultural debates
