Re: Neo-Decadence

I am sorry but under no understanding can D R be called a decadent. Pork pie hats, raincoats and football hooliganism are not decadent, neo or otherwise.

His writing is not Nietzschean or anything like that: it is pure fantastic poetry. Most writers, oddly enough, who claim they are "Dionysian" are actually decadents. Nietzsche was a decadent if you judge by his actual life.

Re: Neo-Decadence

Since somebody asked for concrete examples of Neo-Decadence this might be of interested. The very talented Brendan Connell, has temporarily made the Ebook version of his short prose collection Metrophilias available for free. Go and download a copy for some globe-trotting baroque deviancy:




(I first read Metrophilias before I was in contact with B. I was shocked and very pleasantly surprised to discover a modern writer comparable to J.K. Huysmans. It's still my favorite of his works and comes very highly recommended).

Re: Neo-Decadence

Metrophilias was my introduction to Brendan Connell as well, and its stunning originality and Decadence floored me.

I should re-read it soon.

This is my life. This is my damnation. This is my only regret--that I ever was born.

Re: Neo-Decadence

Reminds me of Oscar Wilde, whose Picture I enjoyed reading in a Gothic lit class, together with viewing the first scene of the 1945 film.
