Ralph Adams Cram’s The Decadent Available as eBook

Illustration from The DecadentBack in July, we began online proofreading of The Decadent by Ralph Adams Cram, as reported here.  This title has become the first of our proofreading projects to be completed and posted to Project Gutenberg.  The finished product can be found here.

The brief novella follows a socialist who travels to visit one of his former students and finds his philosophy significantly changed.  Short on plot but containing some vivid imagery, the story seems written primarily to allow the author to reflect on social and political issues of the time.  The significance of much of this is lost on the 21st century reader, yet the book still provides a surprisingly atmospheric experience.

The entire text can be read online or downloaded in a variety of formats used by portable devices like Kindles, Nooks or iPads.
