Fin de sicle

Fin` de si"cle

(?). [F.] Lit., end of the century; -- mostly used adjectively in English to signify: belonging to, or characteristic of, the close of the 19th century. At that time the phrase was also intended to imply "modern" or "up-to-date;" as, fin-de-sicle ideas. As the twentieth century comes to a close, the meaning may change.
[Webster 1913 Suppl. +PJC]
