Quotes 2017 #103

"In Giono's world we have the sombreness of Hardy's moors, the eloquence of Lawrence's flowers and lowly creatures, the enchantment and sorcery of Arthur Machen's Welsh settings, the freedom and violence of Faulkner's world, the buffoonery and licence of the medieval mystery plays. And with all this a pagan charm and sensuality which stems from the ancient Greek world."

Henry Miller, The Books in My Life. 

I love Henry Miller all the more for his admiration for Giono!
