Event description

Description

‘They are not long, the days of wine and roses…’ (Ernest Dowson)

Members of the Cultural Currents 1870-1930 research group will present an immersive experience, designed to recreate the famous (or notorious) decadent literary salons of the fin de siècle. This evening will involve readings from celebrated works of decadent poetry (from Arthur Symons, Ernest Dowson and others), dramatised excerpts from Oscar Wilde, and a display of projected art-works from the period. You will have a chance to craft your own decadent creations, and we will serve absinthe 1890s-style throughout!

This event will showcase Loughborough’s internationally-recognised expertise in decadence and the fin de siècle, and will involve active participation from postgraduate researchers within the group and from keen undergraduate students within the School.
