Most widely held works by Léon Bloy
Le désespéré; roman by Léon Bloy( Book )

141 editions published between 1885 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publié en 1886, ce roman à clefs (cf. p. 478-479) vaut encore la lecture malgré sa redondance, son outrance et aussi sa "navrance". Roman de la pauvreté et de la douleur, c'est un cri presque sauvage dont les échos vibrent encore. [SDM]
La femme pauvre; épisode contemporain by Léon Bloy( Book )

115 editions published between 1897 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dru et cru, cet "épisode contemporain" de 1897 figure comme l'un des romans les plus percutants de la littérature française, tant pour la situation que pour le style, dans le calibre illustré plus tard par Céline du ##Voyage au bout de la nuit##
Pilgrim of the absolute by Léon Bloy( Book )

47 editions published between 1914 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le salut par les juifs by Léon Bloy( Book )

118 editions published between 1892 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dans le Salut par les Juifs, Léon Bloy fait oeuvre d'écrivain, mais aussi de théologien, sinon de mystique. En effet, ce texte, publié en 1892, imprégné des rapports de Bloy et des époux Maritain, marque une date importante de l'histoire des rapports entre juifs et catholiques
Histoires désobligeantes by Léon Bloy( Book )

99 editions published between 1894 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les sujets traités dans les histoires désobligeantes ne sont a priori ni légers, ni plaisants, et, dans l'ensemble, ne prêtent guère à rire. Les contes, en effets, dressent consciencieusement la liste des éternels crimes et délits humains, et brossent par touches successives un tableau effrayant
The woman who was poor, a contemporary novel of the French 'eighties by Léon Bloy( Book )

7 editions published between 1939 and 2015 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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.""--
L'âme de Napoléon by Léon Bloy( Book )

52 editions published between 1911 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L. Bloy (1846-1917), jourmaliste, catholique mystique, à la fois révolutionnaire et prophète, vit en Napoléon un homme providentiel, c'est-à-dire un homme mû par la Providence, par la volonté souveraine du Créateur : il montre ainsi dans cet essai écrit en 1912, que sa marche vers le sommet, les événements gigantesques dont il est le protagoniste et sa chute sont de nature surnaturelle

Francouzský spisovatel (1846-1917), předchůdce moderního psychologického románu, líčí v románě na pozadí pařížského uměleckého života z let 1879-1880 příběh chudé dívky, předurčené rodinným prostředím k výdělku lehké ženy. Vestyku s dvěma umělci - výtvarníky, z nichž jeden se stává jejím přítelem a druhý manželem, stoupá ke krátkému štěstí a morální velikosti, avšak život ji postupně zbaví všech blízkých i dítěte a nakonec končí jako žebračka
