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

childish need to start wailing : ' I ought to explain everything . ' I spoke in tears .
Tears ran down my cheeks and between my lips . As crudely as I could , I told ...
She was looking at me , too , not saying anything . She saw that tears were
streaming from my eyes , in spite of myself . She was not especially beautiful , but
she was touching and natural ; I would never have thought she could be so

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
