Description

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 [box]Also available: "My Mother Madame Edwarda and the Dead Man, "TP $14.95, 0-7145-3004-2 - CUSA"Literature and Evil "TP $14.95, 0-7145-0346-0 - CUSA"L'Abbe C"TP $14.95, 0-7145-2448-X - CUSA
