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key texts from an international range of Decadent writings and writings about Decadence, many of them previously unpublished and hard to find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
