This book explores the relationship between literary politics and the politics of place in fin-de-si?cle travel and place-based literature.Appealing to graduates, tutors and scholars of Modernism, twentieth-century and Victorian literature, Murray examines the relationship between literature and the politics of place at the fin de si?cle. This book explores travel and place-based writing produced by Decadent writers, offering new ways of reading the stylistic innovations of Decadence.Appealing to graduates, tutors and scholars of Modernism, twentieth-century and Victorian literature, Murray examines the relationship between literature and the politics of place at the fin de si?cle. This book explores travel and place-based writing produced by Decadent writers, offering new ways of reading the stylistic innovations of Decadence.The challenges posed by Decadence to Victorian moral conventions - particularly sexual - have been well documented, but this book makes the case for understanding Decadence as a response to the ways in which place was accorded moral value in the period. The book uses landscape as a key trope for exploring Decadent writing's approach to location and identity. Drawing on a wide range of fin-de-si?cle literature organised around a series of locations from Naples to New York, Murray argues that Decadent writers developed a form of landscape and place-based writing using a series of stylistic features to challenge the increasing homogenisation of both place and literary culture. Decadence and the literature of the fin de si?cle are re-framed as a politically-engaged form of landscape writing. This is an ambitious and richly researched study.1.
