An annotated anthology

Jane Desmarais

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Brings together key texts from an international range of Decadent writings and writings about Decadence, many of them previously unpublished and hard to find Range of material chosen reflects that decadence was not a brief episode confined largely to the 'Nineties', but a strong tradition persisting from the 1830s to the early 20th century
  • Brings together mainstream and marginal decadent texts, most of which are re-presented here in translation
  • Older out-of-copyright translations have been preferred wherever possible; in all other cases the editors have tried to locate the best translation for the purpose, seeking new translations where none exist
