Another Huysmans Schnippet

“Now it was all over… the jovial bourgeois lorded it over the country, putting his trust in the power of money and the contagiousness of his stupidity. The result of his rise to power had been the suppression of all intelligence, the negation of all honesty, the destruction of all art…”

J. K. Huysmans, trans. Brendan King
from “Against Nature (A Rebours), Dedalus 2008.”.
