Delving deep into human psychology, Huysmans explains the formation of a personality and how some childhood deprivations force Des Esseintes to abandon the world and create one of his own. Cited differently as a ghost story, horror story and mystery, the novel is also an expedition in psychology as well as emblem of 19th century decadence of literature.
