Product Description:

Decadent literature in Britain blossomed in the 1890s around such figures as Oscar Wilde Aubrey Beardsley Max Beerbohm Ernest Dowson and Arthur Symons. Under the maxim 'Art for Art's Sake' they often defied moral convention and pursued the limits of sensation wilfully transgressing Victorian respectability along the way. This illustrated anthology concentrates on the major preoccupations of Decadence: Artifice Intoxication Spirituality and Death. The selections include not only the finest examples of Decadent prose and poetry but also extracts from theoretical texts criticism and parody. This wider focus creates a well-rounded and distinctive introduction to the best of Decadent writing.
