Walter Pater

a.k.a. Walter Horatio Pater

Author Code: EWHP

Born: Aug. 4, 1839 - Shadwell, England

Died: Jul. 30, 1894 - Oxford, England

Educated at King's School, Canterbury and Queen's College, Oxford, Pater settled in Oxford after graduating and tutored private students. His interest in literature and art led him to begin writing. At first, he wrote criticism and biographical articles. In 1866, his essay Coleridge, was published in the Westminster Review. In 1868, he published Aesthetic Poetry in the Fortnightly Review and followed with a series of biographical essays on Da Vinci, Boticelli and others. His writing was beginning to gather a following among intellectual circles, including the Pre-Raphaelites. In 1885, he published his novel Marius the Epicurean in which he developed his aesthetic ideals and which helped to define the Aesthetic movement. One of the leaders to emerge from this movement was Oscar Wilde, one of Pater's students. Pater continued to teach at Oxford until his death from rheumatic fever in 1894. His other works include Studies in the History of the Renaissance (1873), Imaginary Portraits (1887), Appreciations, With an Essay on Style (1889), Plato and Platonism (1893), The Child in the House (1894), Greek Studies (1895 Posthumous) and Gaston de Latour (1896 Posthumous).
