Some good points made here. As Michael says, he DID know how good he was. This wasn't conceit, but simply a clear understanding of what could be accomplished in his chosen idiom and a recognition of his own ability to accomplish it. THAT'S what made the neglect he suffered so hard to endure, I think. If he'd believed himself to be mediocre I think he would have gone and done something else.
