Nordic Literature of Decadence (eBook, ePUB)

Nordic Literature of Decadence fills a gap on the map of world literature and participates in a thriving area of research by extending the investigation of broadly understood fin de siècle decadence to unexplored areas of Nordic literature, which remain practically unknown to Anglophone audiences. In the Nordic countries the new Parisian movements were seen as having caused a malicious invasion, a ´black flood´ that was spreading over the North destroying the very foundations of Nordic national cultures. Nevertheless, the appeal of this controversial movement was irresistible to discontents and innovators, even in countries where the old moral, religious and nationalist atmosphere still retained its stranglehold and modern urban, industrial and social developments lagged behind that of the metropoles breeding this new literature and art. The Nordic countries developed their own distinctive manifestations of decadence favouring allegorical and allusive forms, local rural settings and depictions of primitive nature, coupling the philosophical underpinnings of fin-de-siècle decadence with ancient Nordic mythology and rising national movements. Nordic decadence thus became a distinctive and recognizable phenomenon, which travelled back to France and other European countries, influencing the ongoing debate on decadence as it was conducted on a global scale. Nordic Literature of Decadence discusses literature from five Nordic countries: Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Estonia and offers additional and alternative perspectives to the cosmopolitan traffic and cultural exchanges of literary decadence that have been explored so far in the English language scholarship.

Sexual Personae: Art and Decadence from Neferti...

In this brilliantly original book, Camille Paglia identifies some of the major patterns that have endured in western culture from ancient Egypt and Greece to the present. According to Paglia, one source of continuity is paganism, which, undefeated by Judeo-Christianity, continues to flourish in art, eroticism, astrology, and pop culture. Others, she says, are androgyny, sadism, and the aggressive western eye, which has created our art and cinema. Paglia follows these and other themes, from Nefertiti and the Venus of Willendorf to Apollo and Dionysus, from Botticelli and Michaelangelo to Shakespeare and Blake and finally to Emily Dickinson, who, along with other major 19th-century authors, becomes a remarkable example of Romanticism turned into Decadence. 1.

Please note: This is a review and analysis of Brazillionaires, not the original book. This review and analysis is not endorsed by or affiliated with the original author. When we think of Brazil, we think of beautiful beaches and beautiful people. It is a tapestry of people from different backgrounds all just having fun. However, this is far from the whole truth of what is going on Brazil. Despite Brazil being part of the BRIC nations, those with the most potential for growth in the global economy, Brazil is considered economically backwards in many ways. You get an idea of this when you look deeper into its politics and economic policies. In this edition of Summary Shorts, we will analyze and summarize the ideas put forth in Brazillionaires, a book that truly exposes the dark side of Brazil´s rise and arguably its inexorable fall. Enjoy! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Doron Alon. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/098438/bk_acx0_098438_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Decadence: A Very Short Introduction , Hörbuch,...

The history of decadent culture runs from ancient Rome to 19th-century Paris, Victorian London, fin de siecle Vienna, Weimar Berlin, and beyond. The decline of Rome provides the pattern for both aesthetic and social decadence, a pattern that artists and writers in the 19th century imitated, emulated, parodied, and otherwise manipulated for aesthetic gain. What begins as the moral condemnation of modernity in mid-19th century France on the part of decadent authors such as Charles Baudelaire ends up as the perverse celebration of the pessimism that accompanies imperial decline. This delight in decline informs the rich canon of decadence that runs from Joris-Karl Huysmans´s À Rebours to Oscar Wilde´s The Picture of Dorian Gray.In Decadence, David Weir explores the conflicting attitudes towards modernity present in decadent culture by examining the difference between aesthetic decadence - the excess of artifice - and social decadence, which involves excess in a variety of forms, whether perversely pleasurable or gratuitously cruel. Such contrariness between aesthetic and social decadence led some of its practitioners to substitute art for life and to stress the importance of taste over morality, a maneuver with far-reaching consequences. 1.

Tell me a secret.... CJ Carmichael hasn´t been able to get the vivacious blonde he spent four delirious days with off his mind. The blonde who was completely off-limits, but he couldn´t deny. Tell me a secret.... CJ had no intention of pursuing her, but Tara Stevens knew what she wanted and it was him. Now six months later, their time together still haunts him. As much as he´s tried to talk himself out of seeing her again, the craving is just too powerful. Tell me a secret.... Tara is more than willing to spend an entire fantasy weekend with CJ. More than willing to hand herself over to him completely and fulfill his every desire. More than willing to pretend he owns her despite their age difference and Kayne´s disapproval. Tell me a secret.... Sometimes fantasy becomes a reality. Sometimes people fall in love before they even know it - before they even know each other - and after it´s too late. Tell me a secret.... Sometimes, beneath the sweetest secrets are the most deceptive lies. Lie with Me is a dark erotic romance and can be heard as a standalone novel.

La historia del Caballero Des Grieux y de Manon Lescaut es el titulo completo de la novela que escribio en el siglo XVIII Antoine-Francois Prevost, llamado el abate Prevost, por que habia asumido ordenes menores. La obra, a pesar de que el autor quiso mostrarlo como libro moralizante causo gran escandalo en sus tiempos, en el siglo XVIII cuando fue publicada, ya que ese retrato descarnado de una mujer que unicamente vive para el placer y el lujo no tenia antecedentes literarios.This novel, although the author wanted it to be a moralizing book, caused a great scandal when it was published in the eighteenth century due to it´s lurid portrait of a woman who only lives for pleasure and luxury, a concept which didn´t have any literary antecedents at the time. 1.
