Subject:Jewelled Snot
Posted by:leopold_paula_b.
Time:7:05 pm.
Gustave Moreau took it up with morbidity and conscious artificiality — painting in a style that Paul Gauguin called "jewelled snot".

This is from Guy Davenport's essay "The Head as Fate". Can anyone help me find the original French quote?

Hello there-I've just started a community devoted to Walter Pater. I realize he's relevant in this community but I feel he deserves a community devoted specifically to him. Anyone who would care to join is welcome.
community name: walter_pater
p.s. I apologize if promoting other communities isn't allowed.

p.p.s. I've decided I must read The Picture of Dorian Gray in French...I speak French but not quite fluently. I've read Baudelaire, Verlaine, Louys and so on in French but found it a bit challenging. Has anyone read Dorian Gray in French?? I think it will be sublime.

Time:6:20 pm.
Metamorphosis of the Vampire

by Charles Pierre Baudelaire (Les Fleurs Du Mal)

Meanwhile the woman, from her strawberry lips,
(Like a snake on redhot coals, writhing her hips
And working her breasts against the stays of her busk)
Let flow these words, with a heavy scent of musk:
"My mouth is wet; and I know deep in my bed
How to bury old conscience till he's dead.
On these proud breasts I wipe all tears away
And old men laugh like children at their play.
For the man who sees me naked, I replace
The moon, the sun, and all the stars of space!
And I am so expert in voluptuous charms
That when I hush a man in my terrible arms
Yielding my bosom to his biting lust,
(Shy but provocative, frail and yet robust)
The mattress swoons in commotion under me,
And the helpless angels would be damned for me!

When she had sucked the marrow from every bone,
I turned to her as languid as a stone
To give her one last kiss ... and saw her thus:
A slimy rotten wineskin, full of pus!
I shut my eyes, transfixed in a chill of fright,
And when I opened them to the living light . . .
Beside me there, the powerful robot
That fed its fill out of my blood . . . was not!
Instead, the cold ruins of a skeleton
Shivered, creaking like a weather vane
Or like a sign hung out on an iron arm
Swinging through long winter nights in the storm.


_

and being at this theme, I post this (.) to
spice up this beautifully daramatic poem, since I extraordinarily like
the delicate way this british lady ...

Das Lied des Trinkers


Es war nicht in mir. Es ging aus und ein.
Da wollt ich es halten. Da hielt es der Wein.
(Ich weiß nicht mehr, was es war.)
Dann hielt er mir jenes und hielt mir dies,
bis ich mich ganz auf ihn verließ.
Ich Narr.

Jetzt bin ich in seinem Spiel, und er streut
mich verächtlich herum und verliert mich noch heut
an diese Vieh, an den Tod.
Wenn der mich, schmutzige Karte, gewinnt,
so kratzt er mit mir seinen grauen Grind
und wirft mich fort in den Kot.


The Drinker's Song

It wasn't in me. It came and went.
I wanted to hold it. But the wine held it.
(I don't know anymore what it was.)
Then he held this out to me, then that,
until I gave myself over to him completely.
Stupid ass that I am.

Now I must play his game, and he tosses
me around for fun. He might lose me today
to that beast, Death.
And when he wins the filthy card that I am,
he scratches his grey head with me
and then throws me away in the muck.

Subject:1. the bad glazier
Posted by:larvatus.
Time:11:16 pm.
    Il n’existe que trois êtres respectables :
    Le prêtre, le guerrier, le poète. Savoir, tuer et créer.
    Les autres hommes sont taillables et corvéables, faits pour l’écurie, c’est-à-dire pour exercer ce qu’on appelle des professions.
    — Charles Baudelaire, Mon cœur mis à nu
    There exist but three respectable beings:
    The priest, the warrior, the poet. To know, to kill, to create.
    The rest of men belong to the fatigue party, made for the stables, in other words for the practice of that, which is called professions.
    — Charles Baudelaire, My heart laid bare[0]
It is the 26th of August, 1862. Charles-Pierre Baudelaire is forty-one years old. After losing his father thirty-five years earlier, the bereft son wasted no time in squandering most of his patrimony at the earliest opportunity. Yet to this day, he commemorates the late Joseph-François Baudelaire, philosopher and theologian educated at the University of Paris, a defrocked abbot and inflexible republican, in a reliquary transported through his frequently changes of Parisian domicile. The jealous stepson of the dashing general Aupick, Baudelaire takes solace in the former commander of the Ecole polytechnique and ambassador to Madrid and Constantinople having passed away five years earlier, bequeathing to the full-fledged orphan the undivided attention of the widowed Mme. Aupick. For the past two decades this grown-up has been subsisting in the state of legal minority, supervised by a conseil judiciaire administered by the notary Narcisse Ancelle. His livelihood depends on cadging handouts from his beloved mother to supplement the allowance from the remainder of his inheritance and the proceeds from his translations of Edgar Allan Poe and occasional journalism. For the past fifteen years he has cultivated notoriety as the poet of Les Fleurs du mal, with six of its blossoms judicially condemned and censored for obscenity. About twenty months earlier he has published its expanded and improved second edition, meant to support his fervid, failed candidacy for the Académie française. An erstwhile defender of the revolutionary barricades, he is now become an adept of pure art, a dedicated dandy, and an acute opium addict. His political fervor has transmuted into self-flagellation in the midst of a Jansenist crise de foi.[1] Read more...Collapse )

Subject:a community for Symbolism and beyond
Posted by:dfordoom.
Time:7:53 pm.
I’ve started a new community strange_tears .The idea behind this community is to take the Symbolism Movement of the 19th century, both in painting and literature, as the starting point. From there I hope we will branch out into areas such as other movements that influenced Symbolism (like the Pre-Raphaelites), and movements that were in turn influenced by Symbolism (like surrealism and the Decadents), and follow trails of influence that will take us to areas like art nouveau, the gothic revival, spiritualism, the Egyptology craze, Rosicrucianism, magick societies like the Golden Dawn, the Celtic Twilight, Wilde, aestheticism, the Decadence, etc.

There is no need for discussions to be limited to painting and literature – music, interior design, costume, jewellery, architecture are all perfectly acceptable subjects for discussion. If you can show some link between Symbolism and the subject of your post, then your post is on-topic. I want this to be a community that doesn’t mind leaving the main read and heading off interesting looking side roads from time to time.

Other subjects that may well be discussed are Victorian attitudes towards homosexuality, the position of women in Victorian society, the clash between science and religion that developed over the course of the 19th century, dandyism, attitudes towards sexuality, etc.

For me, one of the great Decadent Heroes is Arthur Symons, a poet who seems all but forgotten. I particularly like his poem "Bianca" - it's wonderfully overheated!

Subject:Aubrey Beardsley as poet
Posted by:dfordoom.
Time:5:41 am.
Aubrey Beardsley is a definite hero of Decadence. And although better known as an illustrator, he was also a poet. I must confess I have read only a single poem of his, “The Three Musicians”. I thought it was delightful. Has anyone else read more of his poetry? Is it worth seeking out?

{it is the more or less "converted" Oscar we read here!?..
-Funny (but also typical for Oscar) that he answears with HIS OWN formative features when asked "what trait of character he detests in each gender"...
-Also remarkable; his reply to "What is the sublimest passions of which human nature is capable?"
yet one of his loftiest aphorisms says somewhat like this: »industry is the root of uglyness« ;)

...William 'Turner or Corregio are quite plausible, but I can hardly imagine a certain 'Oscar Wills Wilde' favouring a pious monastery-painter á la 'Fra Angelico'. -Ambivalence was Oscar´s most flattering characteristics anyway.}

this one is enchanting,,, i never read it before... so mill. thanks to the individual who shared this.

Time:5:16 am.
-The Influence of Lord Henry Wotton-
It is to the ideals hidden by shadows of shame that many look for comfort in secret, and it is the darker side of life that many yearn for. The general body of humanity struggles hopelessly through the age-old routine of daily life, praying and begging for guidance of some sort. Their eyes, starved by lack of guidance and by the starkness of the earth, look most eagerly toward those ideas that appeal to the sense, though perhaps not to the rationale. Thus are people more inclined to turn toward those who would give them these answers and weave them these tales. Lord Henry Wotton, a superlative example of such a person, is the speaker of the darkest of truths and the most enticing lies. Even those who see him as wicked are attracted to the manner in which he behaves toward others, the truths—oft unspoken by others for their dark nature—and eloquent lies that he whispers, and most importantly to the overall gentle force of his influence.
Towards others, Lord Henry acts in whatever way he deems suitable for the time being; this occasionally makes his manner seems somewhat capricious. Overall, however, his actions are more premeditative than a whimsical nature would allow. He accepts others to his liking, promotes them when he chooses, and takes from them when the urge strikes him. He knows whom he must work more firmly with to keep within his grasps, and whom he already has a hold of. In the way of controlling relations, he has a complete mastery. Take, for instance, the situation with Dorian Gray and Basil Hallward. Lord Henry coaxes Dorian further away from Basil, who had explicitly asked that Henry not interfere with the relationship of the two. Instead of heeding these words, Lord Henry takes Dorian closer to himself, treating Dorian in a manner that he knows the young man will enjoy, while keeping Basil away from Dorian and on an ever-present leash of sorts.
Lord Henry can occasionally, by way of a serpent tongue, provide a feeling that he sympathizes with the individual. He gives a certain comfort to those around him by complimenting them, or by making snide remarks about those who are disdained. In reality, he holds little interest in what others what, shoving their passions aside as insignificant and passing; this can be well seen in his referral to Dorian’s great love as “some little actress or other” and his complete initial rejection of the girl. Bail Hallward recognizes this general apathy, voicing that Lord Henry is “indifferent to everyone.” The fact that he realizes this, however, does not stop the painter from returning to the artistic language of Lord Henry.
Lord Henry is entirely able to make the cruder truths seem like the occurrences of an everyday lifestyle, and utter nonsense seem to be the most prodigious of all truths. He speaks what he believes will work to his advantage, acting through the manipulation of words and phrases. Lord Henry is able to convince Dorian that the part of the boy in the death of Sibyl, the death that he had initially accepted his part in, was to be paid no mind to. Murder, as he showed it, would be a terrible thing for Dorian to waste his pretty head thinking over, and it had been of no real trouble. Through his words, Lord Henry manages to warp the idea of a nasty murder into something entirely commonplace and inconsequential. “To cure the soul by means of the senses, and the senses by means of the soul,” he says. This is simply ridiculous, and yet Dorian takes it to heart, believing it to be beautiful. In a way, the way that he speaks is a form of art. The images that he creates are those that he wishes others to see and follow.
Through use of his persuasive tongue, Lord Henry exercises immeasurable influence over those around him. One of the first things that he tells Dorian is that “all influence is immoral”; he even explains why this is so. The fact that it is immoral does not stop him from influencing others, however. Even as he speaks these words to Dorian, he is influencing the boy, showing Dorian a view of life from the policy of Lord Henry. Why should he do such things? Lord Henry finds amusement in his influence, as he finds it most interesting to watch the impact that he might have upon others through the work of a few words. It is for the purpose of amusing his own self, therefore, that he toys with the lives and minds of others. His initial introduction to Dorian changes the life of the boy entirely, and Lord Henry continues to work against any natural good in Dorian as the story continues. Though this, he creates in Dorian an absolute infatuation with immoral urges.
Using his words, Lord Henry binds others to himself, enrapturing them. Even those—such as Basil—who see that many of his intentions are ill, are caught into his life. Lord Henry influences in a way that is often rather surreptitious, but always quite comforting to the individual being altered. As in the case of Dorian, Lord Henry can make the individual whom he molds feel as if the new path is the one that was meant to be taken. Because Lord Henry holds such a power to comfort, and a seemingly high level of intellect, and because he can make others feel wanted, he is welcomed most everywhere. Because he can make a person feel as if a new world has been opened, he is seen as an important and indispensable individual.
At one point, a woman with whom Lord Henry is dining remarks “ Lord Henry, I am not at all surprised that the world says that you are extremely wicked.” To this, Henry simply retorts “But what world says that? …It can only be the next world. This world and I are on excellent terms.” His terms with the world are of his own device, as he is able to work those around him into doing what might please him. Through use of his eloquent language, Lord Henry is able to influence others. They hold strongly to his friendship because of this, as in the case of Dorian Gray. Basil Hallward, on the other hand, remains with Lord Henry out of a deep respect for the art of Lord Henry’s life. Because he is innately eloquent, seemingly accepting, and secretly serpentine, Lord Henry Wotton draws those around him with incredible force.
