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

She kissed me inside the mouth . “ Maybe . ” I went into the bathroom . I was very
pale . For no reason at all I looked at myself in the mirror for a long time ; I was
horribly unkempt , almost coarse , with swollen features that were not even ugly ...
There was a young boy wearing a cap in the archway , a very young boy . He
wanted to joke with her . In her despair , she was incapable of laughing . She had

She kissed my nakedness . Earth had stuck to the fur of my legs ; she started
scratching it off . She clung to me . She made teasing , sly gestures of extravagant
indecency . At first she made me fall down . I had a hard time getting back up .

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
