Beginning at the End : Decadence, Modernism, and Postcolonial Poetry Hardback

Description

Robert Stilling shows how aestheticism's decadence became a key idea in postcolonial thought, describing the failures of revolutionary nationalism and asserting cosmopolitanism in poetry and art.

Breaking down the boundaries around decadent literature, he takes it outside Europe and emphasizes the global reach of its imaginative transgressions.
