Excerpt from The Temptation of St. Anthony
One who saw him in 1879 found the young Greek athlete - now close upon sixty, and having in the interval created some of the great classics of French literature - a huge man, a tremendous old man. His long, strag gling gray hair was ... brushed back. His red face was that of a soldier, or a sheik - divided by drooping white moustaches. A trummt was his voice, and he gesticulated freely. The colour of his eyes a bit of faded blue sky.
