An openly lesbian, feminist writer, Vernon Lee—a pseudonym of Violet Paget—is the most important female aesthetician to come out of nineteenth century England.

Lee's work in aesthetics, philosophy of empathy and art criticism is overlooked. David Zwirner Books is reintroducing her writings with "Psychology of an Art Writer' (1903) and select pieces from the "Gallery Diaries" (1901-1904). Lee's insights into psychology and aesthetics, combining ekphrases, abstraction and assessments of art, are profound.

With a foreword by Berkeley classicist Dylan Kenny, this is the definitive guide to Lee's astonishing oeuvre.
