Sesame and Lilies (FULL Audiobook)
Sesame and Lilies - audiobook John RUSKIN (1819 - 1900) John Ruskin’s Sesame and Lilies (1865) consists of two lectures, “Of Kings’ Treasuries” and “Of Queens' Gardens,” delivered in December 1864 at the town halls at Rusholme and Manchester. While these lectures emphasize the connections between nature, art and society, they are essentially concerned with education and ideal conduct. The first half of the original work, “Of Kings’ Treasuries,” is a critique of Victorian manhood. The second half, “Of Queens' Gardens,” counsels women to be moral guides and urges parents to educate them as such. Although Sesame and Lilies was widely popular in its time, the work in its entirety has been out of print since the early twentieth century. A preface and a third essay, “The Mystery of Life and Its Arts,” were added to later editions, first seen in 1871. Genre(s): *Non-fiction Language: English (FULL Audiobook)
