Salome & Under the Hill
Par Oscar Wilde & Aubrey Beardsley$18.99 ISBN: 9781902588902
Aubrey Beardsley's UNDER THE HILL, a short work commenced in 1894 but left unfinished at the time of Beardsley's premature demise, nonetheless achieves the quintessence of Decadence, an evocation of a synaesthetic pleasure dome to rival Huysmans' A Rebours. This, allied to its extraordinary catalogue of sexual perversions, makes it a unique and indispensable text for any who seek the uttermost extremes of the manifest imagination.
This joint edition of SALOME and UNDER THE HILL, united by twenty of Beardsley's unsurpassable drawings, is a timely rehabilitation of these two all-too-often ignored fin-de-siècle texts, and constitutes a volume of unadulterated erotic decadence which stands at the pinnacle of the genre.
