Ernest Dowson was one of the major poets of the romantic late Victorian Decadent period. Adams explores Dowson's passions to show how the poet's strange delights and sexual excesses were worked into the pure verse of such lyrics as "Cynara" and provides insights into the bohemian circles of London and Paris in the fin de siecle period.



It sets out to show how his strange delights and sexual excesses were worked into the pure verse of lyrics such as "Cynara".
