Book Overview

Literature and Culture at the Fin de Siècle
Talia Schaffer

This unprecedented comprehensive anthology offers the most prominent and exciting examples of poetry, fiction, prose, and drama in fin-de-siècle literature.

This anticipated collection features well-known works by fin-de-siècle authors alongside non-canonical stories, poems, and articles. Organized into four thematic units -- Aestheticism, New Women, Mind and Body, and England and Its Others -- this text delves into the provocative topics relevant to this literary era.


  • The first and only undergraduate reader on the fin-de-siècle offers famous poems, popular fiction, and controversial journalism, along with rare non-canonical texts, to suit broad surveys and single-topic seminars alike.
  • The readings provide a broad representation of popular and lesser-known authors, including Oscar Wilde, Rudyard Kipling, Walter Pater, A.E. Housman, Alice Maynell, Arthur Symons, and Una Ashworth Taylor.
  • Innovative juxtapositions of material offer a new perspective on well-known texts.
  • Headnotes, footnotes, and unit introductions supply brief, readable explanations to support and contextualize the readings.
