I am astonished at the pleasure one feels at doing good. And I should be tempted to believe that those whom we call virtuous do not have so much merit as we are led to believe.
Listen, my love, as long as you share yourself out among several, I am not in the least jealous: I simply see in your lovers the successors of Alexander; they are incapable, the whole lot of them put together, of holding on to an empire where I reigned alone. But that you should give yourself entirely to just one! That there should be another man as happy as I! I shall not tolerate it; do not expect me to.
Bloom skriver om "The Aristocratic Age" (år 1321-1832):
- - - It is a span of five hundred years from Dante's Divine Comedy through Goethe's Faust, Part Two [1321-1832], an era that gives us a huge body of reading in five major literatures: Italian, Spanish, English, French, and German. In this and in the remaining lists, I sometimes do not mention individual works by a canonical master, and in other instances I attempt to call attention to authors and books that I consider canonical but rather neglected. From this list onward, many good writers who are not quite central are omitted.
