About This Book

The first anthology of Decadent short stories reflecting a variety of fin-de-siècle themes


This wide-ranging anthology showcases for the first time the short story as the most attractive genre for British writers who experimented with Decadent themes and styles. From familiar writers such as Ernest Dowson, Arthur Symons and Oscar Wilde to less known writers such as Charles Ricketts, Vincent O'Sullivan and Una Ashworth Taylor the 36 stories and 2 parodies demonstrate ideas of class, gender, sexuality, and science as well as the Gothic, social satire, Symbolist fantasy, fairy tale, Naturalism/Realism, Impressionism, erotica, and the scientific romance. The selections represent the important role that the Little Magazine culture played in the unprecedented explosion of the Decadent short story in the 1890s. A full introductory essay sets the scene, while an introduction and endnotes for each story and explanatory material at the end of the book make this anthology stand out.
