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.
