In NCFS 37.1--2 (Fall-Winter 2008--2009) the wrong abstract was attributed to the article by Marc Smeets, "Osmaz6mes (Huysmans)."

Professor Smeets's abstract should read:

It is generally known that in J.-K. Huysmans, the fascination with concentrates appears in two semantic fields: in nutrition and in aesthetics. To that, in our view, may be added a third: religion. Through a process we have dubbed "a reduction to the essence," we argue that the osmaz6me alluded to in A rebours, the ptomaine mentioned in En rade, and the sacred essences discussed in Sainte Lydwine de Schiedam and La Cathedrale express in dialectical terms Huysmans's fascination with an authentic presence.
