IN THIS PENETRATING AND THOUGHT PROVOKING HISTORY, JERROLD SEIGEL EXPLAINS HOW AND WHY LA VIE DE BOHEME EXERTED SUCH A PULL ON GENERATIONS OF WRITERS AND ARTISTS. HE OFFERS A FASCINATING ANALYSIS OF THE CONTRASTING, BUT ALWAYS RELATED, BOHEMIAN AND BOURGEOIS LIFE STYLES, ETHICS, AND AMBITIONS, AND HIS BRILLIANT ACCOUNTS OF KEY POLITICAL EVENTS, SOCIAL ISSUES, AND INNOVATORS OF THE NINETEENTH CENTURY SUGGESTS IMPORTANT NEW WAYS OF INTERPRETATING POLITICS AND THE AVANT-GARDE.

From the Back Cover:

Exotic and yet familiar, rife with passion, immorality, hunger, and freedom, Bohemia was an object of both worry and fascination to workaday Parisians in the nineteenth century. No mere revolt against middle-class society, the Bohemia Jerrold Seigel discovers was richer and more complex, the stage on which modern bourgeois acted out the conflicts of their social identities, testing the liberation promised by postrevolutionary society against the barriers set up to contain it. Turning life into art, Bohemia became a space where many innovative and original figures--some famous, some obscure--found a home.

About the Author:

Jerrold Seigel is William J. Kenan Professor in the Department of History at New York University.
