About this Item

Hardback octavo, dustjacket, very good condition (in very good dustjacket), coloured endpapers, minor edgewear jacket, top edge lightly foxed. 220 pp. The author examines the ways in which decadent writers adopted the language of physiological illness and alteration as a figure for psychic otherness. Using an ideological and rhetorical analysis of scientific as well as literary texts, this book shows how the rhetoric of sickness provided the male decadent writer with an alibi for the occupation and appropriation of the female body.
