This is the first comprehensive study of the Rococo revival in nineteenth-century European literature and the arts, and examines developments in France and Germany, England and Austria, as well as contributions from America and Russia. The first half of the book comprises a thematic account of literary examples of the Rococo revival organized into perceptual modes: theatrical, oriental, pastoral, and musical. The second half is chronological, tracing shifts in cultural ambience between 1830 and 1910 in twenty-year stages, dealing with different types phenomena: critical perspectives, decorative arts, painting, music, and literature. All readers drawn to the literature, arts, and culture of the nineteenth and early twentieth century, and especially to period styles and interartistic relations, will be engaged by this study, which also includes sixty-nine illustrations. Ken Ireland is an Associate Lecturer for the Open University.
