Quick Overview

Changing Scenes. Encounters between European and Finnish Fin de Siècle. Edited by Pirjo Lyytikäinen
Finnish Literature Society
Studia Fennica. Litteraria 1
Tampere 2003, 218 pp.


Six articles in Changing scenes represent the ongoing reassessment of fin de siècle literature in Finnish research. The period was seen in earlier research as something of a national renaissance or golden age and interpreted in the light of its national symbols and meanings. Only recently has more attention been paid to its international dimensions and its role in the modernisation of Finnish culture. In particular the spotlight has been trained on the reflection in Finnish literature of manifestations of the degeneration thinking so common in Europe at that time.
