MARIO PRAZ THE ROMANTIC AGONY PDF

Baudelaire and Flaubert are like the two faces of a Herm planted firmly in the middle of the century, marking the division between Romanticism and Decadence, between the period of the Fatal Man and that of the Fatal Woman, between the period of Delacroix and that of Moreau. The former painted gestures, the latter attitudes. Although far apart in artistic merit after all, Delacroix in his best work is a great painter , they are highly representative of the moral atmosphere of the two periods in which they flourised -- of Romanticism, with its fury of frenzied action, and of Decadence, with its sterile contemplation. The subject-matter is almost the same -- voluptuous, gory exoticism. But Delacroix lives inside his subject, whereas Moreau worships his from outside, with the result that the first is a paniter, the second a decorator.

Snobbery much? The book is mostly structured as a kind of show-and-tell; for example, he has a chapter on the Fatal Beauty as a type, and the whole thing is basically a bunch of quotes that mention evil women. Or maybe fortunately, because what does appear is occasionally quite, ahem, dated "Like Mrs. Radcliffe, other authoresses also adopted the persecuted woman as a character; but there may be nothing more in this than another of the many manifestations of feminine imitativeness.

And there is something delightful in its focus on what we might call the ickiest aspects of Romanticism. But you definitely emerge with a kind of overall sense of some of the darker currents within Romanticism, which is cool.
