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.
"Georges Bataille is one of the most important writers of the century"—Michel Foucault

walked for nearly an hour , frozen by the rain that soaked my clothing and hair .
... of white tombs , in a lunar , spectral light . Fundamentally , this graveyard was a
brothel . The funereal marble was alive . In some places it had hair on it . I looked
at Xenie . With childish terror , I thought : motherly ! Xenie was visibly suffering .
