    • Georges Bataille Joachim Neugroschel Dovid Bergelson

      French essayist, philosophical theorist and novelist, often called the metaphysician of evil Bataille was interested in sex, death, degradation, and the power and potential of the obscene He rejected traditional literature and considered that the ultimate aim of all intellectual, artistic, or religious activity should be the annihilation of the rational individual in a violent, transcendental act of communion Roland Barthes, Julia Kristeva, and Philippe Sollers have all written enthusiastically about his work.

    • What the hell did I just read _ I have enough trouble digesting genre erotica as it is, but this came out of the blue and hit me like a burning meteor shattering everything of the self knowledge of my sense of desire Don t get me wrong, prude I am not I love my erotic writing, sexual investigations, the Freudian truths, and sexual fantasies too, speaking of which, this is a twisted sexual fantasy overwhelmed by its own craziness and charged with an assemblage of layered symbolism, wherein a rang [...]

    • On Pornography The question is not whether pornography, but the quality of the pornography Paul GoodmanPornography is the explicit portrayal of sexual subject matter for the purpose of sexual arousal I wonder why it is such a big no no with some people What are they thinking What do they want us to think Pornography is evil immoral naughty, because sexual arousal is evil immoral naughty Alternatively, sexual arousal is OK, but the explicit portrayal of sexual subject matter is evil immoral naugh [...]

    • The last orgy I attended was in Dundee I turned up two minutes late, improperly dressed my gimp mask hadn t been drycleaned in time , and offended the host by complimenting him on his lovely breasts, and even cracking vagina I was told to gently lube the testicles of a history teacher for the first romp clearly the host was furious with me, as the history teacher was my own father then invited over for a little frottage against the pelvis of a divorced Cher impersonator She sang Gypsies, Tramps [...]


    • This book was unabashedly, humiliatingly retarded It s the kind of book that s so famous and then you read it and wonder if someone is pulling a practical joke on you.I ve read better fanfic porn.


    • Read this for my dissertation As a narrative, it s somewhat messy As erotica, it s somewhat depraved.As a synthesization of Bataille s theories and worldview, it s a treasure trove.



    • Recently I have been thinking, why would people always think about leather, whip, DS and women being tied up when they think about sexual deviancy That is so not the whole picture, and the stereotype from above is just soring.When you open Story of the Eye, you are in for a rare, exciting and disturbing treat The story is one hell of an over the top adventure of sexual deviancy and anarchy In this story, sexual pleasure and desire comes into play in some of the most unusual ways but through read [...]


    • And it struck me that death was the sole outcome of my erection, and if Simone and I were killed, then the universe of our unbearable personal vision was certain to be replaced by the pure stars, fully unrelated to any external gaze and realizing in a cold state, without human delays or detours, something that strikes me as the goal of my sexual licentiousness a geometric incandescence among other things, the coinciding point of life and death, being and nothingness , perfectly fulgurating There [...]


    • Your typical teenage romance, replete with spontaneous orgasms, golden showers, bull testicles, eggs inserted into orifices that eggs are not meant to be inserted, suicide, rape, sacrilege, eroticizing eyeballs, bullfighting and murder Your body is a temple of filth and sex is slimy, you perverted reader, you.


    • This may be a short read a novella composed of only 103 pages of letters printed using big font Definitely a short read However, it is full packed with explicit and sickening sex scenes so this is not for readers who are squeamish when it comes to sex Also, this is not a book to titillate readers The sex scenes are so disgusting I did not feel anything that made we want to have sex Rather, the internal stirring I had while reading this came due to George Bataille s 1897 1962 deep philosophical m [...]


    • Sick, disgusting and kinky but never boring It certainly makes an impression But if it were to be any longer I would start chucking off the stars Lucky for Mr Bataille that he kept the story short and writing up to standards I m sure if you try hard you could find some social commentary in there and a few metaphors, but it takes an effort to look beyond all the fetish and gore Besides lewdness itself makes a point here.


    • The text is redeeming, but not in a transcendental way The moral lacks morality and as you ll read elsewhere acts as a precursor to existentialism My literary friend recommends Emmannuelle by Emmannuelle Arsan as a starting point if not a follow up to this type of reading Here s to the dionysian I d recommend Caligula as well and then we can have a lecture on sexual disfunctions and decadence


    • I don t mind bizarre lewdness or surreal disgusting situations Nonchalant mentions of a rape or a crime, in the same manner one would mention their coffee was a bit too cold in the morning don t shock me as much as they probably should Crack however many eggs you want between your buttocks and urinate on various surfaces in any number of positions I ll remain impassible Piss down your leg, on your mother, in a priest s nostrils, on your clothes, on mannequins, on any surface imaginable If you ma [...]


    • Georges Bataille is, in the world of literature, a special case Nietzschean in the soul, blending blithely in his works sex and death, he is the one whom Jean Paul Sartre declared unfit for philosophy A boy with 16 year old dating a girl named Simone whom he falls at first sight in love and together, they end quickly by engaging in very unusual sexual games They then take in their incongruity a denominated Marcelle, a girl with convoluted discernment and therefore easily manipulable At three, th [...]

    • Angela Carter, in an essay about Story of the Eye, once said that the French seem to delight so much in shocking the English that they barely take time to notice that the English aren t really all that shocked Being an American, I can t really know how right she was, but I definitely think that, in a few deft strokes, she captured the guiding spirit of this book.The problem with pornography as literature or art, or even as comedy, is that any criticism one raises to it will be seen by its advoca [...]


    • One of the most bizarre books I have ever read, The Story of the Eye kept me torn as I kept turning the pages Torn whether to repulse or whether to admit excitement.This book was unlike anything I had read, vividly graphic and subtly gross, yet engaging and literary at the same time Is it pornography Undoubtedly yes, but it is also a romance, a dark, twisted, forbidden romance with an ending I could not imagine in my wildest dreams Update 04 01 2016I just completed a second, thorough reading of [...]

    • Until recently I didn t think that I was boring in bed Or that I lacked imagination and a willingness to experiment I have my preferences, yes, but I liked to believe that I was fairly open minded However, when I started speaking to and people about sex, women mostly, I was shocked to discover that many acts that were not on my sexual radar although I was aware of them, of course were common fantasies and, it seems, were regularly being performed Slapping and choking, for example Oh, and fuck [...]


    • So I finally read this I don t really care about porn because porn is boring and utilitarian and that utility is quite limited at that Then why was I able to enjoy this Because though it s pornographic, it s not really porn Bataille uses that vocabulary to carry out something ambitious and ambiguous The sex acts here rarely involve intercourse, instead enumerating some elaborate convergent alchemy Blood, milk, semen, eggs, and urine are gradually converted into the eye, the eye, the eye, the ey [...]



    • Every once in a while I have to read something dirty, lusty and depraved I don t know what it is about me, but it s necessary And I don t really mind And I don t feel dirty afterwards, but rather refreshed actually So there.George Bataille, besides beind the lliterary executor to Walter Benjamin s controversial he was a Jew facing persecution from Nazis during World War II manuscript for his lifelong masterpiece The Arcades Project, was a total degenerate, sensualist scumbag andThe Story of the [...]


    • Crazy, sick, juvenile, blasphemous, insane, refreshing, spontaneous, disgusting, a spit in the face of conservatism At first I intended to write a proper review but then I realized how hard a task that would be, so humor me and pretend I adequately described it.


    • I read those first few pages standing in the doorway of City Lights bookshop when I was nineteen before heading across to Specs for a whiskey The memory of the milk and the cupboard has never left me R and I used to read it to each other in drunken revelry walking down Columbus Avenue, delirious to be alive, ecstatic that someone was going or rather had gone much further than we ever thought possible Kundera writes that a work of art does not necessarily progress like sciece does, but instead il [...]


    • What Da Fuq Did I Just Read Don t pick up this book unless you re a fan of golden showers I started reading this without reading the blurb or anything, suffice to say I was shocked In between rather gruesome goings on the writer tries to make himself seem uber intelligent by using needlessly long words It was just a big clustermug that boiled my brain Could ve been a good tail, but it just fell off a cliff First one star rating of 2016.


    • So far, what have humans done to the written language You may know genres and sub genres, but there are written works which can t snugly fit into these categories so you must invent some for them I suspect that there are these hidden, latent categories in the 1001 books list Like those which some would place under the category unreadable, or modernist nonsense, or insomniac pills So you imagine the editors of the list discussing among themselves which works best exemplify the unreadable ones and [...]
