One day I found him reading a book by the French writer Huysmans, dealing with new art.
Indeed in one of his books he refers to Huysmans as his friend.
Why have you accepted his dilution of nonsense on Verlaine and Huysmans?
From Beyle to Huysmans is not such a remote modulation as might be imagined.
And if they are to be thus collected may we not hope for one or two new essays with, say, for subjects, Flaubert and Huysmans?
This depressing yet magical dream was utilised by Huysmans in his A Rebours.
But a musical Huysmans, for instance, it was never in his power to become.
The unity of form and substance in Huysmans is a distinguishing trait.
Huysmans refused ansthetics because he wished to suffer for his life of sin, above all suffer for his early writings.
The operations of divine grace in Huysmans's case may be dated back to A Rebours.
