5.0 out of 5 stars Little book of the Big toe, 6 Jan. 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ENCYCLOPAEDIA ACEPHALICA: Writers Associated with George Bataille and the Acephale Group (Atlas Arkhive: Documents of the Avant-Garde) (Paperback)
If one ever feels the need to go deeper into the labyrinth of thought that Bataille has made possible, then this is the book to start with. From dark humour to random polyphonic associations of ideas, objects and fragments of thoughts never accomplished, this book will force you out of your traditional, conventional way of being in the world.
The richness of this book goes far beyond the modernist boundaries of Dadaism or Surrealism, even beyond the well-known counter-cultural critical theories widely thought in universities nowadays. The obscurities of phrases, the absurdities of some ideas, the joyful cynicism of the prose (especially of the second part, the DaCosta Encyclopedique) will cover your brain with an undefined and unfinished desire to continue or to suddenly stop a certain experience, to disseminate an incomplete thought in the flesh, to cut the moon's eye with the sharp blade of an obscure emotion, and so on and so forth.
I strongly encourage you to assimilate this book, to keep it safe in the hidden drawers of your spirit and in return it will never let you go, waiting patiently for your sovereign death to occur.
