By Georges Bataille
Bataille’s first novel, released lower than the pseudonym ‘Lord Auch’, remains to be his so much infamous paintings. during this specific pornographic myth, the younger male narrator and his fans Simone and Marcelle embark on a sexual quest concerning sadism, torture, orgies, insanity and defilement, culminating in a last act of transgression. stunning and sacreligious, tale of the attention is the fullest expression of Bataille’s obsession with the closeness of intercourse, violence and dying. but it's also hallucinogenic in its energy, and is among the erotic classics of the 20 th century.
