Revival …

… Pater in Arcadia by Paul Dean | The New Criterion. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

… of the twenty-one contributors, only seven are academic teachers of literature. The others are classicists and art historians. Their collective aim is to make the case that Pater, whom they describe as “our greatest aesthetic critic,” is also a force to be reckoned with in classical studies.
I have always enjoyed Pater, actually, whom I read when I was in high school.
