The Platonism of Walter Pater

Embodied Equity

Adam Lee

Oxford English Monographs

  • The first full-length study of how Platonism informed Walter Pater's entire writing career
  • Uses Platonism as an instrument to take new measure of Pater's relationships with Oscar Wilde and Matthew Arnold, redefining Pater's role as a literary critic, and qualifying his role in movements such as Aestheticism and Decadence
  • Depicts late-Victorian Oxonian Platonism by focusing on its embodiment in Walter Pater
