The Dandy and the Herald

  • Richard Pine


The Heraldic Universe is proclaimed because the world of the dandy has become congealed — frozen into an attitude. My principal task is to explain how that happened in the case of Lawrence Durrell. My thesis is that, as with political history, so with the history of modern literature and aesthetics, we will find in the evolution of the nineteenth century the origins of modern theory as it emerged from the eclipse of the old world — feudal, aristocratic, liveried — by the new individualism, moral inversion, deicide, technological development and the growth of economic theory.
