Bohemian Paris: Culture, Politics, and the Boundaries of Bourgeois Life, 1830-1930.
by [Paris Bourgeois] Seigel, Jerrold.

Publisher Information:
Viking, New York: 1985.

A Fine copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. Review copy with publisher's original promotional newsletter laid in. Seigel has written an important work, one which monitors the development of an extraordinary counterculture through all its evolutions and ambiguities during a constantly changing period of French history. Bohemian Paris was, of course, a uniquely creative entity; its art, ideas, literature, and lifestyles influenced (and were influenced by) the bourgeois world that was simultaneously taking shape. The author combines a sophisticated command of French history with an authoritative understanding of those who populated Bohemian Paris, e.g., Courbet, Rimbaud, Zola, and Cocteau. Though not an easy book, this represents a major contribution to social and intellectual history.
