Introduction by Xenutia).
The Golden River, which sprang from one of the lower and snowlesselevations, was now nearly in shadow-all but the uppermost jets ofspray, which rose like slow smoke above the undulating line of thecataract and floated away in feeble wreaths upon the morning wind. On this object, and on this alone, Hans's eyes and thoughts were fixed. Forgetting the distance he had to traverse, he set off at an imprudentrate of walking, which greatly exhausted him before he had scaled thefirst range of the green and low hills.

John Ruskin was born on 8 February 1819 at 54 Hunter Street, London, the only child of Margaret and John James Ruskin. See if your friends have read any of John Ruskin's books. In 1850 he published The King of the Golden River, which he had written for Effie nine years before, and a volume of poetry, and in the following year, during which Turner died and Ruskin made the acquaintance of the Pre-Raphaelites, the first volume of The Stones of Venice. The final two volumes appeared in 1853, the summer of which saw Millais, Ruskin, and Effie together in Scotland, where the artist painted Ruskin's portrait. The next year his wife left him and had their marriage annulled on grounds of non-consummation, after which she later married Millais.
This is Ruskin’s only published work of fiction, and is an early example of a literary fantasy written specifically for a child. Ruskin wrote the fairy tale in 1841 in response to a request from 13-year old Euphemia Gray, known as ‘Effie’. Seven years later they married. The fairy tale was not published for a decade and Ruskin was not initially named as the author. Ruskin later wrote that he believed children should not be bombarded with overtly moralistic literature, but instead.
