Joris-Karl Huysmans was a French novelist who published his work under his initials. He is most famous for his novel A Rebours (volume VII) which followed the tastes and inner life of Jean des Esseintes, an eccentric, reclusive aesthete and antihero who loathes 19th century bourgeois society. The work of Huysmans was considered remarkable for its idiosyncratic use of the French language, large vocabulary, descriptions, satirical wit and far-ranging erudition. He was associated with the decadent movement as well as Naturalism. Condition: In uniformly bound quarter crushed morocco with marbled boards.
