Mal du siecle

Mal du siècle

Mal du siècle, which can be roughly translated from French as "pain of the century," is a term used to refer to the hopelessness, sadness, disillusionment, and melancholy experienced by primarily young adults of Europe's late 19th century, when speaking in terms of the rising decadent movement. This may also simply be termed the "ennui."
