Product Overview

Described as "A Novel Without a Plot" J. K. Huysman''s "Against the Grain ( Rebours)" is a relatively simple story. It concerns the seclusion of one Des Esseintes, the last member of a once powerful and noble family. Having lived an extremely decadent life, Des Esseintes finds himself disgusted with human society and retreats to a house in the countryside where he is intent upon spending the rest of his days in intellectual and aesthetic contemplation. Because of its decadent content "Against the Grain" created quite a stir when it was first published and in breaking from the Naturalist school of literature Huysman''s work established itself as a major piece of the Symbolist aesthetic.
