About This Item

(Printed by Lancaster Press for the) Institut des Etudes Francais, Columbia University, New York: ., 1927 pp. iii, 126. Small 8vo. 205 mm. Original printed paper wraps, worn and broken, with 1" loss at the spine. Marginal damp stain. The Chapters include: Are the Modern Poets Decadent?; Huysmans the Sphinx; Tragic Story of Adore Floupette; Albert Samain a French Love Poet; Francis Jammes, Primitive. The last two essays were written with Joseph Warren Beach. The end of the 19th century was felt to be a period of degeneration, but also the simultaneous closing and onset of a new era, full of hope for a new beginning. The hallmarks of the fin de siecle that were recognized as prominent in the 1880s and 1890s, included boredom, cynicism, pessimism, and a widespread belief that civilization leads to decadence. Scarce. POETRY 1. Soft cover.
