This international collection of critical essays addresses Firbank's fiction from a variety of perspectives. The essays cover the full range of Firbank's fictional output and include pieces on Vainglory, Odette D'Antrevernes, Inclinations, Sorrow in Sunlight, The Flower Beneath the Foot and Concerning the Eccentricities of Cardinal Pirelli. The minor writings are also addressed. The collection seeks to establish Firbank as a novelist who is more important to the development of literary modernism than his current reputation as a minor cult figure suggests.
