Seminar for teachers: Introducing Ronald Firbank

A late outcome of the 1890’s aestheticism, a dandy in the line of Oscar Wilde, Ronald Firbank is most known for his satirical novels like Vainglory (1915) with their subtle wit and highly wrought style.  This talk centres on some of his early lesser known but equally interesting short stories, and discusses the issues inherent in translating their refined stylistic experiment.
