Quotes about À reboursEdit

  • Huysmans ... was one day to astonish the world by his resounding cry: À rebours! denouncing with a fine fanaticism the modern error, which has been evolving in accordance with its inner logic since the initial faux pas of the Renaissance; arguing that we ought to turn back and actually retrace our steps to the Middle Ages and their "cathedral."
