The first historians of French Symbolism complained that ‘Symbolisme’ was a misnomer, and with good reason: it had very little to do with the expected definition of ‘to symbolize or be symbolized by’, and continues to confuse for precisely this reason. ‘Symbolism’, when seen in the neighbourhood of ‘Decadence’, is likely to refer to a self-styled (but riven and selfdividing) avant-garde community, equipped with a daunting appendix of theories.
