Summary
"In this 1884 novel, the last scion of a once-powerful family retreats from his bourgeois life in Paris to an isolated villa where he spends his days in intellectual and aesthetic contemplation. A classic account of the quest for enlarged experience and new sensations, Against Nature scandalized Victorian critics with its break from naturalism and embrace of fin-de-siecle decadence"--
