Language:
English
Genres:
Biographies & Memoirs
Remy de Gourmont was a novelist, poet, playwright, and philosopher who was one of the most-penetrating contemporary critics of the French Symbolist movement. His prolific writings, many of which were translated into English, disseminated the Symbolist aesthetic doctrines. He was also a literary critic and essayist of great importance, most notably his Le Probleme du Style which was a source book for many of the ideas that inspired the literary developments in both England and France and was also admired by T. S. Eliot and Ezra Pound in that capacity. “Decadence and Other Essays on the Culture of Ideas” was first published in 1922. This is the first English translation of his essays authorized by Gourmont or his personal representatives. He possessed one of the acutest and freest minds of his own age. He received no public honours, died poor, but since his death his books have rapidly achieved a wide circulation which continually increases. We are glad to present you one of his literary works. Enjoy the reading.
