For Decadent authors, Romanticism was a source of powerful imaginative revisionism, perversion, transition, and partial negation. But for all these strong Decadent reactions against the period, the cultural phenomenon of Decadence shared with Romanticism a mutual distrust of the philosophy of utilitarianism and the aesthetics of neo-Classicism. Reflecting on the interstices between Romantic and Decadent literature, Decadent Romanticism reassesses the diverse and creative reactions of Decadent authors to Romanticism between 1780 and 1914, while also remaining alert to the prescience of the Romantic imagination to envisage its own distorted, darker, perverted, other self. Creative pairings include William Blake and his Decadent critics, the recurring figure of the sphinx in the work of Thomas De Quincey and Decadent writers, and Percy Shelley with both Mathilde Blind and Swinburne. Not surprisingly, John Keats’s works are a particular focus, in essays that explore Keats’s literary and visual legacies and his resonance for writers who considered him an icon of art for art’s sake. Crucial to this critical reassessment are the shared obsessions of Romanticism and Decadence with subjectivity, isolation, addiction, fragmentation, representation, romance, and voyeurism, as well as a poetics of desire and anxieties over the purpose of aestheticism.

About the Author:

Kostas Boyiopoulos is Associate Tutor of English Studies and Mark Sandy is Reader in English Studies at Durham University, UK.

Review:

'Alert to Romanticism's prescience in contemplating the excesses of its own decaying other self, the 12 essays gathered in this timely collection embrace the dark splendors and dying glories that connect Romanticism and fin-de-siecle Decadence in British and European literature and culture. Spanning the period from Baillie and Byron, Coleridge and Keats to Swinburne, Symons, and Wilde, the book is packed with new insights into Romanticism's strange legacies to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.' Nicholas Roe, University of St Andrews, Scotland
