Vernon Lee (Violet Paget,1856-1935) : une odyssée scripturale entre romantisme et modernité

Abstract : The 1890s are considered as a period of transition between Romanticism and Modernism. Therefore, we can refer to a romantic legacy of the fin-de-siècle Victorian writers' inspirition and imaginative universe. The Literature of the Decadence favours mythic themes, especially the myth of the "Femme fatale". Estheticism and ethics are the main concerns of Vernon Lee's work. As a writer and a witness of her time, she makes the most of her writing in order to stand up for the woman's emancipation. It is an avangardist writing, which is steered towards Modernism. Besides, she is influenced by the recent discoveries in the field of Social Sciences.
