Product Overview

"Douglas Mao''s "Fateful Beauty" is a compelling work of intellectual, social, and literary history that reclaims aestheticism as a revolutionary social as well as artistic creed. This magisterial and groundbreaking work should emerge as a standard one on the period. Mao is a writer who commands attention and respect through his scrupulous research, careful arguments, and eloquence as a cultural and literary critic."--Maria DiBattista, Princeton University

"This book provides a really original take on the literature of the fin de sicle and high modernism, suggesting how central the imaginative labor of literary works was to the social, philosophical, and cultural traditions of the period. Mao works out his claims with a subtlety, depth, and range of reference that is deeply impressive. The book is written with unusual clarity, precision, and grace, adding to one''s sense that it is the product of a major critic coming into his own. A splendid piece of work."--Jonathan Freedman, University of Michigan
