 Modern History Sourcebook: Voltaire: On On The Royal Society And Other Academies, from Letters on The English or ...
The Academy of Sciences is prudently confined to the study of Nature, and, indeed, this is a field spacious enough for fifty or three-score persons to range in.
That of London mixes indiscriminately literature with physics; but methinks the founding an academy merely for the polite arts is more judicious, as it prevents confusion, and the joining, in some measure, of heterogeneals, such as a dissertation on the head-dresses of the Roman ladies with a hundred or more new curves.
Congreve, who may be called their Moliere, and several other eminent persons whose names I have forgot; all these would have raised the glory of that body to a great height even in its infancy.

 glbtq >> literature >> Decadence
Nineteenth-century Decadent literature either describes aspects of decadent life and society or reflects the decadent literary aesthetic.
Another major thematic, as well as stylistic, influence on Decadent literature was the Gothic novel, and the writings of Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849).
Decrepit, isolated mansions; feeble, aristocratic lineages; and hypersensitive, refined bachelors are some of the stock elements of Decadent writing that can be traced to such writers as Poe and Ann Radcliffe (1764-1823).
