Sexual Personae: Art and Decadence from Nefertiti to Emily Dickinson


This study of sexuality and decadence in culture crosses the boundaries of literature, art, psychology and religion, from antiquity to Wilde and Emily Dickinson via Renaissance art, Rousseau and Sade. The author discusses themes such as voyeurism and pornography as having been ignored in great art by most critics. The book challenges established thinking and ranges from the worshippers of Dionysus to the 19th-century Decadents from Botticelli and Byron to Balzac and the Beach Boys.
