Pre-Raphaelite, Symbolist & Decadent art & poetry

strange_tears is a community for those interested in 19th century movements in art and literature such as Symbolism, Pre-Raphaelitism, Aestheticism, Decadence and the Gothic. We talk about most 19th century art with the exception of the Impressionists. We talk about 19th century writers such as Swinburne, Baudelaire, Rimbaud, Symons and Oscar Wilde, and artists such as Rossetti, Holman Hunt, Waterhouse, Burne-Jones, Moreau, Gustav Klimt, Paul Gauguin, Carlos Schwabe, Fernand Khnopff and Lucien Levy-Dhurmer.

We also discuss related topics such as Victorian attitudes towards homosexuality, women in Victorian society and in Victorian art and literature, and the dandy.
