London in the 1890s : a cultural history by Karl E Beckson ( Book )
8 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 799 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Outcries against obscene art and behavior; anxiety about national decline in the face of emerging superpowers; bitter debate about women's roles and behavior; fear of a dangerous underclass festering in urban slums; misgivings about the price of progress; multicultural enthusiasms; vogues for a new age of mysticism and the occult; widespread feeling that the world is changing faster than anyone can assimilate. Not America in the 1990s, but England in the 1890s as this fascinating book reveals. In the tradition of Carl Schorske's Fin de Siecle Vienna, Karl Beckson shows how in the 1890s London drew together and nurtured the seeds of modernism. Here are the great figures of that time - Wilde, Shaw, Yeats, Beardsley, Kipling, Gladstone, Beatrice and Sidney Webb, among many others - engaged in the movements and debates, the great shifts in public behavior and feeling, that would make the world we know. The result is an entertaining cultural history that brings before us the time and the place where Victorianism gave birth to modernism

The symbolist movement in literature by Arthur Symons ( Book )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First published in 1899, The Symbolist Movement in Literature was a highly influential work of criticism, and served to introduce the French Symbolists to an Anglophone readership. Symons' interest in writers such as Paul Verlaine and Stéphane Mallarmé puts him at the heart of contemporary debates about Decadence and Symbolism in fin-de-siècle literature; but his work was also a formative influence on modernist writers such as Joyce, Eliot, Pound and Yeats, helping to shape the role of the Image in modernist writing. This new critical edition makes available a key text that has been out o
