Charles Bernheimer defined decadence as a "stimulant that bends notion out of form, deforming conventional conceptual molds." during this posthumously released paintings, Bernheimer succeeds in creating a serious notion out of this perennially trendy, infrequently understood term.
Decadent Subjects is a coherent and relocating photograph of fin de siècle decadence. Mature, ironic, iconoclastic, and considerate, this notable selection of essays indicates the contradictions of the phenomenon, that is either a situation and a mind set. In trying to convey why humans have did not provide a passable account of the time period decadence, Bernheimer argues that we regularly mistakenly take decadence to symbolize whatever concrete, that we see as a few type of agent. His salutary reaction is to come to these authors and artists whose paintings constitutes the topos of decadence, rereading key past due nineteenth-century authors similar to Nietzsche, Zola, Hardy, Wilde, Moreau, and Freud to rediscover the very dynamics of the decadent. via cautious research of the literature, artwork, and tune of the fin de siècle together with a riveting dialogue of the numerous faces of Salome, Bernheimer leaves us with a desirable and multidimensional examine decadence, all of the extra very important as we emerge from our personal fin de siècle.

Nur durch Himmelskarten können Erdkarten gemacht werden; nur durch den Standpunkt von oben herab (denn der von unten hinauf schneidet ewig den Himmel mit einer breiten Erde entzwei) entsteht uns eine ganze Himmelskugel, und die Erdkugel selber wird zwar klein, aber rund und glänzend darin schwimmen.
