Russian Decadence in its Western Context

Russian Language, Literature and Culture 322

Usual Description

The literature of decadence flourished in Russia in the waning decades of the 19th century. We will examine the works of Russia’s decadent writers and the Western European authors that influenced them, focusing on the movement’s debts to 19th century Russian literature, the complex relationship of decadence to symbolism, critical response to the movement, and the influence of decadence on other modernist movements-including other art forms.
