Product Description

Review

Bataille speaks about man's condition, not his nature ... In him reality is conflict (Jean-Paul Sartre)

About the Author

Georges Bataille, French essayist and novelist, was born in 1897. He converted to Catholicism, then to Marxism, and was interested in psychoanalysis and mysticism. As curator of the municipal library in Orleans, he led a relatively simple life, although he became involved, usually on the fringes, with the surrealist movement. He founded the literary review Critique in 1946, which he edited until his death in 1962, and was also a founder of the review Documents, which published many of the leading surrealist writers. His writing is a mixture of poetry and philosophy, fantasy and history, and his first novel, Story of the Eye, was written under the pseudonym of Lord Auch. Bataille's other works include the novels Blue of Noon, L'Abbé C and My Mother, and the volumes of essays Eroticism and Literature and Evil.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very interesting book, with a lot of interesting ideas, especially in the way it is written. It feels to be written more as a train of thought as well as an argument of notions, and is very useful for dissertation work, or simply to read to increase ones knowledge.
