5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant rollercoaster ride through the fin-de-siecle!, 18 Aug. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: 1900 (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics) (Paperback)
The editors have done a remarkable job collating bite-sized snippets of writings and drawings from almost all walks of life during the turn of the last century. We are plunged into the deep end, where HG Wells' fiction sits next to Nietszche's philosophy, which in turn segues into newspaper articles and editorials on tops ranging from social concerns, sexuality, scientific change, war, medicine, and so on. This is not a tour of the places of the turn of the century, but the MINDS. This is what people were thinking around 1900. An invaluable historical document.
