Des petites maladies qu'on déguste dans Le Chat Noir [Ténias et vers libres]

Abstract : Meanwhile, since Baudelaire, literature struggles to display diseases, preferably the incurable and monstrous ones, the artists publishing in the « little » fin de siecle journals, in accordance with their status, prefer the little aches of daily life. It is no coincidence that, in Le Chat Noir, the most symptomatic illness is tapeworm, that it seeks to question in such a group plan. Taenia completes, among other diseases, the dishes, we will see furthermore that, treated as a whole character, Taenia’s character will be subject to bitter tastes, as intending that it has to go through a quite few misadventures. Under the guise of provocation, bad taste perhaps, these artists aim to simultaneously subvert and feature the so-called fin de siecle « crise de vers ».
