Aestheticism

by Leon Chai
 

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Emerging out of the twilight of 19th century religious faith, the Aesthetic movement sought to redefine the relation of art to life, viewing art as something more than representation or mimesis, and in effect seeking to transform life itself into a work of art. Chai (English and comparative literature, U. of Illinois) examines the movement and the epoch through its expression in the work of Baudelaire, Burckhardt, Pater, Wilde, Henry James, and Proust.
