The Poetry of Architecture

The Poetry of Architecture
by John Ruskin

Publisher: Project Gutenberg
ISBN/ASIN: B0026RIKIY

Description:
Of all embellishments by which the efforts of man can enhance the beauty of natural scenery, those are the most effective which can give animation to the scene, while the spirit which they bestow is in unison with its general character. It is generally desirable to indicate the presence of animated existence in a scene of natural beauty; but only of such existence as shall be imbued with the spirit, and shall partake of the essence, of the beauty, which, without it, would be dead.
