Description

Huysmans was a French novelist noted for his vast scope of language, his sensuous descriptions and satirical wit. His pessimistic outlook showed a deep disgust for modern life. Des Esseintes is the main character. He is an exocentric antihero who despises 19th century upper=class society. Des Esseintes tried to create his own artistic world. This novel is an excellent example of decadent literature.
