About The Author:

"Walter Horatio Pater (1839-1894) was an English essayist, critic of art and literature, and writer of fiction.

Pater set about clarifying and exemplifying his ideas through fiction. In his philosophical novel Marius the Epicurean ... he displays, with much intellectual elaboration and poetic feeling but with little narrative interest, his ideal of the aesthetic life, his philosophy of beauty tempered by aestheticism, and his theory of the stimulating effect of the pursuit of beauty as an ideal in itself. The novel's opening and closing episodes betray Pater's continuing nostalgia for the atmosphere, ritual and community of the religious faith he had lost." Wikipedia

Review:

"... a philosophical novel set in the Rome of the Antonines.

It elaborates Pater's ideal of the aesthetic life, his cult of beauty tempered by asceticism ..." Wikipedia
