It brings together Paters aesthetic theories with his theories on language and writing, to demonstrate how his ideas of the visual and written language are closely interlinked.

Going beyond Paters views on sculpture as an art form, this study traces the notion of relief (rilievo) and hybrid form in Pater, and his view of the writer as sculptor, a carver in language. Alongside her treatment of rilievo as a pervasive trope, Lene Ostermark-Johansen also employs the idea of rivalry (paragone) more broadly, examining Paters concern with positioning himself as an art critic in the late Victorian art world.

Situating Pater within centuries of European aesthetic theories as never before done, Walter Pater and the Language of Sculpture throws new light on the extraordinary complexity and coherence of Paters writing: The critic is repositioned solidly within Victorian art and literature.
