Sinopse

In Peter Gay’s long-awaited work, his most ambitious undertaking since his seminal biography of Freud, the eminent scholar tells how Modernism swept through the arts beginning in the mid-nineteenth century, destroying traditional and classical artistic forms, and creating the modern world as we know it. Opening this epic book with Charles Baudelaire, Gay shows how the French poet’s sexually explicit, and often perverse, poetry scandalized Paris in the 1840s and 1850s. In a sprawling work that examines the great Modernist influences in literature, poetry, music, and architecture, among other art forms, Gay presents a thrilling pageant of historical characters and legendary heretics, including Oscar Wilde, Virginia Woolf, and even Andy Warhol. In a final chapter devoted to Pop Art, Gay reveals how a new generation of artists ingeniously brought together high and low art, thus sounding the death knell of a movement that had dominated Western culture for over 120 years.
