|About the Book|
1920. Preeminent as an in-depth music critic, Hunekers impressionistic, but incisive criticism in all fields of art made him one of the most influential of his day. He stood at the head of an American Aesthetic movement of bohemian authors, artists, actors and musicians obsessed with decorative and frequently morbid beauty of the arts. The Bedouins first section includes aesthete essays on all the arts, including pieces on Edgar Allan Poe, Anatole France, and sadomasochist Octave Mirabeau. The second, smaller section of the book includes decadent weird tales, most especially the powerful Vision Malefic and The Supreme Sin.
