    Amiel, Henri Frederic

  1. Author: Amiel, Henri Frederic
    Title: Amiel's Journal
    Date: 1893
    Genre: nonfiction
    Note Relating to Cather: Journal of Swiss poet and philosopher Henri Frederic Amiel (1821-1888), translated by Mrs. Humphry Ward in 1885. Cather describes Edgar Allan Poe as having the "dense, complete, hopeless misunderstanding which, as Amiel said, is the secret of that sad smile upon the lips of the great." The full quote reads as follows: "To be misunderstood even by those whom one loves is the cross and bitterness of life. It is the secret smile on the lips of the great men which so few understand" (I,4).
