ADAMS, JAD:
Madder Music, Stronger Wine. The Life of Ernest Dowson, Poet And Decadent.
London, Tauris, Reprinted 2000 8vo, x, 211pp, Illustrated, Hardback with Dust Jacket both in Used - Like New condition. "Ernest Dowson, was one of the major poets of the romantic late-Victorian Decadent period. He died in 1900 at the age of 32. His life is both a story of doomed love and one of a man’s struggle to create beauty in the face of adversity: Dowson was an alcoholic and a severe depressive. Yet this little-understood figure of the Victorian literary world wrote some of the most-quoted lyrics in English verse (“gone with the wind”, “days of wine and roses”). The poet’s circumstances carried all the elements of tragedy: both parents committed suicide, he never had a fixed home, and his life was blighted by an impossible affair with a girl he first met when she was 11. The book examines Dowson’s obsessions and explores his life and work in the context of the social mores and attitudes of his era. It sets out to show how his strange delights and sexual excesses were worked into the pure verse of lyrics such as “Cynara”.
