Evidence

"At one time I knew entire pages of ""Madame Bovary"" by heart. But if ""Madame Bovary"" is a masterpiece ""Salammbô"" is close to a miracle. I well remember that when I was writing ""[The]N[igger]of [the] N[arcissus]"", ""Salammbô"" was my morning book.While taking coffee I would read a page or two at random--and there is hardly a page that isn"t marvellous."
