A Literary Anthology

Ed. Jon Crabb

In defiance of Victorian moral conventions, figures such as Oscar Wilde, Max Beerbohm and WB Yeats explored new forms of artistic expression throughout the 19th century. The 48 poetry and prose examples in this illustrated anthology cover the main preoccupations of Decadence – Artifice, Intoxication, Spirituality and Death – and include well-known pieces as well as those more recently rediscovered, offering a broad introduction to the movement.
