Decadence and Danger: Writing, History and the Fin de Siecle - as the end of the twentieth century comes ever nearer, critics and commentators are drawn increasingly to re-evaluate the difining fin de siecle, that of the last century. This volume of inter-disciplinary essays plays its part in that process. The contributors explore a wide range of writers, from Oscar Wilde, H Rider Haggard, Sarah Grand, Bram Stoker, H G Wells, Joseph Conrad, Violet Fane and Henry Havelock Ellis through to Marge Piercy, Bret Easton Ellis, Anne Rice and Quentin Tarentino.
This paperback book published by Sulis Press and edited by Tracey Hill in 1997 is in very good, as new condition. The binding is tight and all the pages are clean and unmarked.
