That much maligned decade of English Literary known as the eighteen-nineties has, until recently, been largely ignored by scholars. Those who have given it attention have usually dismissed it as either unhealthy or comic. unworthy of serious critical attention. Without attempting to reverse the generally unfavorable estimate of fin-de-siecle poetry, Professor Munro succeeds, however, in placing it in historical perspective , making us realise its importance in the development of the modern aesthetic.
