GRMT 116 SC - The Decadents


The 19th-century "decadents" treated art as an intoxicant. Theirs was a cult of extremes: theaters of cruelty, art for art's sake, celebrations of criminality, and deliberate derangement of the senses. Course begins with 19th-century fiction, visual arts and criticism, and then turns to their "after-images" among 20th-century avant-gardes. This course is taught in English.

Prerequisite(s): For admission to literature and culture courses, GERM 044  or the equivalent is normally required.
Course Credit: 1.0
