'Infatuated, half through conceit, half through love of my art, I achieve the impossible working as no one else ever works.'

True, for Huxley it was LSD, William Burroughs heroin, Dylan Thomas alcohol, Coleridge Opium, RLStevenson Coke, Hunter S Thompson just about everything. Dumas's inspirations seem to have come from terminal syphilis.

This mindset -- this "haughtiness" -- is a fundamental (yet sometimes well-hidden) ingredient for masterpieces. This is not to say that masters are necessarily arrogant all of the time; however, one should not ignore his "immodest" contribution to literature.

And this personal distaste for his lack of modesty and snide attacks against his physical ailment (...if it self-inflicted by "bad behaviour"?) serve what end?
