Blue of Noon
Marion Boyars, 2002 - 128 páginas
Set against the backdrop of Europe's slide into Fascism, this twentieth-century erotic classic takes the reader on a dark journey through the psyche of the pre-war French intelligentsia, torn between identification with the victims of history and the glamour of its victors. One of Bataille's overtly political works, it explores the ambiguity of sex as a subversive force, bringing violence, power and death together in a terrifying unity.

the sky . I had to pull my pants up as best I could . I was standing up . Dirty was
... Marx must also have run through the streets of Trier as a little boy . We had to
go to Coblenz the next day . From Coblenz we took a train to Frankfurt , where I
was to leave Dorothea . As we went up the Rhine valley , a fine rain was falling .

While I didn't actually hate Georges Bataille's "Blue of Noon," I really didn't get it either. This supposed to be a novel that used eroticism to show how sex, violence and power is intertwined and ... Leer comentario completo
