The shape of fear : horror and the fin de siècle culture of decadence by Susan J Navarette( Book )
8 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 351 libraries worldwide
"Susan J. Navarette examines the ways in which scientific and cultural concerns of late nineteenth-century England are coded in the horror literature of the period. By contextualizing the structural, stylistic, and thematic systems developed by writers seeking to reenact textually the entropic forces they perceived in the natural world, Navarette reconstructs the late Victorian mentalite. She analyzes aesthetic responses to trends in contemporary science and explores horror writers' use of scientific methodologies to support their perception that a long-awaited period of cultural decline had begun." "In her analysis of the classics Turn of the Screw and Heart of Darkness, Navarette shows how James and Conrad made artistic use of earlier "scientific" readings of the body. She also considers works by lesser-known authors Walter de la Mare, Vernon Lee, and Arthur Machen, who produced fin de siecle stories that took the form of "hybrid literary monstrosities.""--BOOK JACKET

Late Victorian stories of horror and the supernatural, considered collectively, represent a significant development in literary form deriving from a social and ideological shift within nineteenth-century British society. Although the product of a complex of historical, political, and cultural forces, that shift was precipitated in large part by contemporary scientific theory, which in turn had helped to foster the development of the Decadent Movement emerging in England in the 1880s
