Description

One of the cornerstones of literary dandyism, this collection of French essays was first published in 1830 and served as an inspiration for the works of Barbey d Aurevilly, Charles Baudelaire, and many more reputedly elegant writers. From the early English dandyism of the Regency period to the fruitful artistic and intellectual decadence of 19th-century France, the evolution of this conception of refinement led to the bohemian movement and to authors such as Oscar Wilde. Rich in aphorisms, hilarious anecdotes, and fine humor, this essential chapter in the history of aesthetic taste in dress and behavior has been translated into Spanish for the first time. Uno de los textos fundamentales del dandismo literario, este conjunto de ensayos franceses fue publicado por primera vez en 1830 y sirve como inspiracion para la obra de Barbey d Aurevilly, Charles Baudelaire y otros autores reputadamente elegantes. Desde el dandismo ingles de la Regencia hasta al fecundo decadentismo artistico e intelectual dela Franciadel siglo XIX, la evolucion de esta manera de concebir la elegancia dio lugar al movimiento bohemio ya autorescomo Oscar Wilde. Rico en aforismos, anecdotas hilarantes y un humor finisimo, este capitulo esencial en la historia del gusto estetico en el vestir y en el comportamiento ha sido traducido al espanol por primera vez."show more
