Eugéne Weber


There had always been innovation; no generation had passed without novelties. Now change became the nature of life, novelty a part of the normal diet, served by institutions like the press and nes agencies -- dedicated to it, or to its invention when in short supply: The Fin de Siécle is the age of material novelties, of news, of faits dives, nouvelles à sensation -- of scoops and beats and bulletins, newsbriefs and sensational tidings; the time when fashions in dress, politics, or the arts -- became clearly defined as being made to pass away: Change for the sake of change.
