Description Decadence, Degeneration, and the End de Marja Harmanmaa:

Art and literature during the European fin-de-siecle period often manifested themes of degeneration and decay, both of bodies and civilizations, as well as illness, bizarre sexuality, and general morbidity. The studies range from the Mediterranean world to Scandinavia and Russia and on subjects as diverse as Oscar Wilde, August Strindberg, Joris-Karl Huysmans, Aubrey Beardsley, the Nordic Decadents, the perceived decline of Latin civilization, Salome in all of her outrageous incarnations, and the heat-death of the universe. Marja Harmanmaa is Associate Professor of Italian at the University of Helsinki, Finland. She is a specialist in the Italian culture and literature of the late 19th and early 20th century. She has published extensively on Gabriele D'Annunzio, Italian Futurism, and F.T. Marinetti, including Un patriota che sfido la decadenza. F.T. Marinetti e l'idea dell'uomo nuovo fascista (1929-1944). Christopher Nissen is Professor of Italian at Northern Illinois University, USA. His publications emphasize medieval and early modern Italian prose fiction, including studies of the narrative theory of the novella, early modern manuscripts, Giovanni Boccaccio, Gentile Sermini, and Giulia Bigolina. He has also published articles on Gabriele D'Annunzio. His most recent book is Kissing the Wild Woman: Concepts of Art, Beauty, and the Italian Prose Romance in Giulia Bigolina's Urania.
