Médisance  

From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

"Nothing of a man ; full of petty resentment against all masculine intellects. Wanders about delicate, curious, tired, "pumping" people, a female after all, with a woman's revengefulness and a woman's sensuousness. As a psychologist a genius for médisance ; inexhaustibly rich in expedients for the purpose ; nobody understands better how to mix poison with praise." --Nietzsche on Charles Augustin Sainte-Beuve in Twilight of the Idols
