About this Item: Sheed & Ward, 1939. Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. Condition: Good. 1st American edition [Sheed & Ward only indicated later editions]. The text block is in very good condition with no marks, tears, or dog ears. A couple of pages are crinkled in the upper right-hand corner. The pages are somewhat age-browned, as are the endpapers. There are a couple of tiny spots on the right edge. The previous owner's bookplate is pasted to the first free endpaper, where there is also a tiny hole at the bottom. The tan cloth cover is in good condition but for a few minor spotted areas and bumps, corner bumping on the back cover, and bumping at the top and bottom of the spine. 8 x 5 ½, 356 pages, 18 ounces. XX [From St. Augustine's Press]: Written in the 1890s, this novel has had an immeasurable effect on all European Catholic writing since. It is an extraordinary book, powerful in the manner of dos Passos, yet spiritual in the manner of the Bible. It is the story of a woman abysmally poor, brutally treated and also exploited by her parents, living in the gutters of Paris, yet retaining the spiritual outlook and the purity of a saint. We are spared no brutality, yet there are scenes of the most tender beauty. The woman, Clotilda, becomes an artist's model, meeting all the great French writers, among them the gloomy and magnificent Marchenoir, who is Bloy himself. They are all impressed by the depth of her thoughts and feelings; and finally she marries one of them. They are pitifully poor, and the pages which cover the birth and death of their child shock with their horror at the same time as they move with their tragic beauty and tenderness - for that is Bloy, hovering always between death and ecstasy. Left a widow, Clotilda finds her true vocation, a vocation of poverty: she is The Woman Who Was Poor - no other words can describe her accurately. The novel ends with those famous words of extraordinary optimism: "There is only one misery . . . not to be saints." [Wikipedia]: Léon Bloy (July 11, 1846 - November 3, 1917) was born in Notre-Dame-de-Sanilhac. He was the second of six sons of Voltairean freethinker and stern disciplinarian Jean-Baptiste Bloy and his wife Anne-Marie Carreau, pious Spanish-Catholic daughter of a Napoleonic soldier. After an agnostic and unhappy youth in which he cultivated an intense hatred for the Roman Catholic Church and its teaching, his father found him a job in Paris, where he went in 1864. In December 1868, he met the aging Catholic author Barbey d'Aurevilly, who lived opposite him in rue Rousselet and who became his mentor. Shortly afterwards, he underwent a dramatic religious conversion. Bloy's works reflect a deepening devotion to the Catholic Church and most generally a tremendous craving for the Absolute. His devotion to religion resulted in a complete dependence on charity. Bloy was a friend of the author Joris-Karl Huysmans, the painter Georges Rouault and the philosophers Jacques and Raïssa Maritain, and was instrumental in reconciling these intellectuals with Roman Catholicism. However, he acquired a reputation for bigotry because of his frequent outbursts of temper. Bloy's first novel, Le Désespéré, a fierce attack on rationalism and those he believed to be in league with it, made him fall out with the literary community of his time and even many of his old friends.
