Excerpt from Contemporary French Poetry

The Parnassian school of poetry was definitely killed about 1885 by a new generation of poets whom their enemies christened les décadents. Some of them accepted the name; but it fell into disuse among themselves as the term symbolists gained ground.

There is a prevalent notion among the ill-informed that the decadents, or, better, symbolists were, or are, perverted voluptuaries, with no more back bone than a lampern, victims of hyperaesthesia.
