schema:reviewBody""Examining Beardsley's drawings and prose of the 1890s, Emma Sutton considers the ways in which Wagner's works were appropriated by this seminal figure of the British decadent movement. Despite recent critical interest in Beardsley and the fin de siecle, and considerable research on Wagnerism, this is the first study in English to consider at length Wagner's presence in Beardsley's work. Beardsley combined allusions to the German composer with many of the touchstones of decadent art - the exotic, the morbid, the erotic, and the mannered. In exploring Beardsley's often iconoclastic versions - or perversions - of Wagner's work, this book highlights not only the role of Wagnerism in fin-de-siecle British culture, but also the relations between Wagnerism and contemporary decadence."--Jacket."
