Overview

Fictions of Loss in the Victorian Fin de Siecle: Identity and Empire by Stephen Arata

British culture in the 1880s and 1890s was marked by a strong sense of decline. Fictions of Loss in the Victorian Fin de Siècle examines the ways in which perceptions of loss were cast into archetypal stories that sought to account for the culture's troubles and assuage its anxieties. By examining the work of a wide range of writers—from Kipling to Wilde, from Stevenson to Stoker—Stephen Arata shows how the nation's twin obsessions with decadence and imperialism became intertwined in the thought of the period.
