The woman who was poor, a contemporary novel of the French 'eighties by Léon Bloy( Book )

181 editions published between 1897 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,021 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.""--
Le désespéré; roman by Léon Bloy( Book )

148 editions published between 1885 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 664 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]

Disagreeable tales by Léon Bloy( Book )

82 editions published between 1894 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thirty tales of theft, onanism, incest, murder and a host of other forms of perversion and cruelty from the "ungrateful beggar" and "pilgrim of the absolute," Léon Bloy. "Disagreeable Tales," first published in French in 1894, collects Bloy's narrative sermons from the depths: a cauldron of frightful anecdotes and inspired misanthropy that represents a high point of the French Decadent movement and the most emblematic entry into the library of the "Cruel Tale" christened by Villiers de l'Isle-Adam. Whether depicting parents and offspring being sacrificed for selfish gains, or imbeciles sacrificing their own individuality on a literary whim, these tales all draw sustenance from an underlying belief: the root of religion is crime against man, nature and God, and that in this hell on earth, even the worst among us has a soul
Exégèse des lieux communs by Léon Bloy( Book )

82 editions published between 1901 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extrait : ""Je commence aujourd'hui, 30 septembre, sous l'invocation de saint Jérôme, auteur de la Vulgate, appariteur de tous les Prophètes, inventoriateur plein de gloire des Lieux Communs éternels. Est-ce là manquer de respect à cet étonnant docteur que l'Eglise honore du titre de Maximus, et que le Concile de Trente a implicitement déclaré le Notaire de l'Esprit-Saint? Je ne le crois pas.""
Le salut par les juifs by Léon Bloy( Book )

91 editions published between 1892 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 311 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

L'âme de Napoléon by Léon Bloy( Book )

56 editions published between 1911 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 272 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
