strange tears -19th century poetry and art

strange_tears is a community for those who love 19th century art and literature, particularly the Symbolists, but also movements such as Pre-Raphaelitism, Aestheticism and Decadence. In fact most 19th century art apart from the Impressionists. We also discuss the poetry of the period, and literary movements like the Gothic, and we discuss aspects of 19th century society that had an impact on art and literature, such as Victorian attitudes towards homosexuality, women in Victorian society and in Victorian art and literature, and the dandy.

If you love poets like Swinburne, Baudelaire, Verlaine, Symons and Dowson, if you adore artists like Rossetti, Moreau, Waterhouse, Burne-Jones, Gustav Klimt and Lucien Levy-Dhurmer - join us!
