    1 thought on “Sexual Anarchy: Gender and Culture at the Fin de Siecle”

    1. This is a really fascinating analysis of the ends of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, looking at culture of all types and varieties, written in 1991; the main focus is on the late nineteenth century. Showalter is wide-ranging and her analysis is thought provoking. The topics include what Showalter terms Odd Women, those who did not marry, partly due to population pressures in the late nineteenth century, partly choice and partly the inability men who were self-aware enough not to be threa [...]

    2. I do not normally read literary criticism but I found this book fascinating. The author posits the later years of the 19th century as a period during which male novelists,upset that women were selling more novels than they, attacked women through their novels as well as excluding them from their clubs. It was also a period when a double standard continued, as it does to this day, in society. Showalter uses novels e.g. Rider Haggard's 'She' and Kipling's 'Man Who Would Be King' to show the denigr [...]

    3. A thorough exploration of the idea and feeling of the fin de siecle both in the 19th century and the 20th century, particularly through the lens of sexuality and gender and how those are represented in culture. So many of the same fears: the decline of civilization due to the changing roles of men and women and a sexually transmitted disease, no matter what the century. It's both heartening and depressing to see how far we have come and in many ways how far we have not. In such a book it is alwa [...]

    4. I was a little disappointed to find this book is primarily a work of literary criticism and not a consideration of the broader implications of sexual turmoil at the turning of the last two centuries. Visual art, theater, film, politics, and other aspects of culture are touched on lightly but the focus is on the written word. There's still plenty of interesting material here, some familiar to me and some obscure. The lens of interpretation is modern feminist, which sometimes -- at least to this p [...]

    5. Sexual Anarchy is pretty much a must-read for anyone interested in the fin de siecle. I was mostly aiming for the New Woman chapters, since that is what my essay will deal with, but decided to read the whole book since it is truly a smooth read and very informative, giving a general insight into fin-de-siecle culture.Not only does it discuss elements of fin-de-siecle culture in minute detail, this book also manages to connect these with contemporary (for the time - it was published in the late 2 [...]

    6. Another book I plan to keep on my coffee table when I become a pastor, just to keep people on their toes.Actually, this book is a really incisive look at English attitudes towards sex, the body, gender, and sexuality at the end of the 19th century. Really, really interesting, and also shockingly similar to the debates and concerns fanned into fire by politicians and hype-obsessed religious-folk in the 20th/21st century as well. Just goes to show that sex and the body are societal fears that neve [...]

    7. Outstanding comparison of fear-based sexual repression/oppression in fin de siecle and contemporary culture. At times it resembles a readable version of Faludi's Backlash. The book is nearly 20 years old but didn't seem dated. One of the very few books I've read that attempts to compare the end of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and does it well.

    8. A clever, well-written and very insightful study of gender relations in the fin de siècle period! And also very useful for anyone interested in gender studies/feminism! A must read.

    9. Absolutely loved this book! The title is a bit odd, but it's about the end of the 19th century and the struggle between men and women writers. I would recommend it to anyone!
