Description


Likely the most thorough collection of English-language Decadent poetry to date, The World in Violet, edited by Brendan Connell, brings together 175 poems by 73 poets, in a tour de force of aesthetical excess. Including the works of well-known figures such as Oscar Wilde and Aleister Crowley, as well as lesser-known geniuses such as May Kendall and Edmund John, the volume is a "must have" for both apprentice and connoisseur alike, exploring the bizarre byways of madness and terror and the fields of forbidden love, where flaming gems sit and flowers of evil grow, and where beauty is to be found in the ripple of the cobra or the depths of sin.
