Leon Bloy, THE WOMAN WHO WAS POOR (1897)

“He found by experience the truth of that law, always unbelievable and always proclaimed, that an artist is invariably hated in exact proportion to his greatness, and that if his strength gives out, when the baying pack are hunting him, he won’t even find a plough-boy generous enough to refrain from stretching out his plough-share to trip him up. The Great Holiday of mankind is to see the death of whatever does not seem mortal.”

    Where did you get this quote? Or find this book “THE WOMAN WHO WAS POOR”? (I thought I was the only person in America who had a copy.)
