Reviews

"... the term 'brilliant' is often misused in reviews, but the opening chapter on 'the digital nature of gothic' is truly scintillating ..." --Architectural Research Quarterly

"This is a dazzling, provocative, baffling, and sometimes vexing manifesto. The Sympathy of Things is an unforgettable book." --Carlyle Studies Annual

"... hundreds of threads that make an astonishingly rich tapestry ... Ruskin has at last found an interpreter with the breadth of learning and a poetic imagination to make his perceptions relevant to our own day.
" --Architectural Review

"... exhilarating to watch elements of Ruskin's thought being taken on ... The Sympathy of Things is energetic, well written and full of examples." --Times Literary Supplement
