BATAILLE EROTISM PDF

Georges Bataille sought forbidden knowledge in the foulest of extremities. Even by the standards of French literature, Georges Bataille was a serious pervert. He was also, at least for part of his life, mad. Pornographic novels such as The Story of the Eye, and Blue of Noon, and bizarre early texts such as The Solar Anus, betray not only the influence of surrealism, a movement with which Bataille was fractiously involved, but evidence of a genuinely sick mind.

Georges Bataille sought forbidden knowledge in the foulest of extremities. Even by the standards of French literature, Georges Bataille was a serious pervert. He was also, at least for part of his life, mad.

Pornographic novels such as The Story of the Eye, and Blue of Noon, and bizarre early texts such as The Solar Anus, betray not only the influence of surrealism, a movement with which Bataille was fractiously involved, but evidence of a genuinely sick mind.

If Bataille did not become an influential 20th-century thinker, we might instead be reading about him in true-crime books detailing abominable acts. A devout Christian who abandoned the faith and hurled himself into a mysticism of evil, Bataille sought an atheistic basis for ecstatic experience that would redeem humankind from enslavement to work, security and acquisition.

Having abandoned his blind, incontinent father to the approaching German forces during the first World War, Bataille sought forbidden knowledge in the foulest of extremities.

Human sacrifice, organised war and festivals of cruelty would have their place in any society unwise enough to let him call the shots.

Proceed with caution: Erotism is a fascinating abyss that gazes back, a book you might wish to seal and bury deep underground, where it would contaminate the earth with putrefactive visions of excess.

Erotism: Death and Sensuality review – Cogent thoughts of a sick mind

Taboo and sacrifice, transgression and language, death and sensuality-Georges Bataille pursues these themes with an original, often startling perspective. He challenges any single discourse on the erotic. The scope of his inquiry ranges from Emily Bronte to Sade, from St. Therese to Claude Levi-Strauss and Dr. Kinsey; and the subjects he covers include prostitution, mythical ecstasy, cruelty, and organized war.
