T is no doubt in large part on account of my recall of both experiences being meagre at best that I ound returning to My Mother so revelatory Those with a cursory knowledge of Bataille s backstory will immediately grasp the autobiographical thread running through the piece It is narrated by Pierre a man of about Bataille s age Pierre is reflecting upon a time about Ali Pashë Tepelena fifty years in his past beginning in about 1906 when a number of decisive events occurred all of them to one extent or another orbiting around his deeply perverse relationship with his mother H l ne Like Bataille young Pierre has in his youth rebelled against his anti clericalather a man he despised by becoming a devout Catholic and even considering a career in the church a rebellion against which he

surpassing a limit in a truth beyond Milking the Dogs, Part 1 facts Up till then the alcoholicather s death I had never noticed that she drank I was soon to realize that she drank every day in the same way But that rippling laughter that indecent exuberance she was not always like that Rather she would be sad appealingly mild she would seal herself up she had a deep melancholy I blamed on my Larong Pinoy (LgM Books For Children, 5) father s wickedness and that melancholy was what decided my lifelong dedication The melancholy takes theorm of piety devotion to God and idealized mother the indecent exuberance represents the introduction of a lacerating consciousness of distress that will transform Pierre His mother intoxicated tells him The gutter the dungheap that s where your mother

Second Bataille book I ve read this week and although I didn t 천년구미호 [Cheonnyeon Kumiho] find it as good as Blue of Noon it did come with aascinating Yukio Mishima introductory essay who sights Bataille as one of only three western writers he ever tru I am a big Coots fan of Georges Bataille siction He borders on the creepy of course but its his intelligence that is seductive I wish he was alive now He s someone I would like to meet and have a cup of coffee with Would he drink coffee Yukio Mishima wrote the introduction to this book which is worth the price of the volume I have read this particular Penguin edition collecting three shorter pieces of iction by Georges Bataille before some years ago in a state of woeful dissipation utterly in the mire of active addiction and can recall the experience only vaguely My copy of the actual book itself has some character to it having survived a ire about False Witness five years ago that burned down much of the building in which I was then living theire department dumped a huge amount of water on my condo unit and some of my books received damage on that account causing them to become mottled and ragged a condition I believe very much suits this particular Bataille Aside Pandaimonion from the novella My Mother and the two shorter works Madame Edwarda and The Dead Man this edition contains an introductory appreciation by Yukio Mishima written very near the end of the Japanese master s life and a scholarly afterward by Ken Hollings that deals with Bataille s thematic universe broadly not once touching explicitly on the three works collected in the volume the piece concludes Mishima asserts that along with Witold Gombrowicz and Pierre Klossowski the latter a contemporary of Bataille s and his collaborator on the journal AC PHALE ol GB was among hisavourite contemporary Western writers demonstrative as were the other two previously mentioned men of an anti psychological delineation anti realism erotic intellectualism straightforward symbolism and a perception of the universe hidden behind all of these as well as many other common characteristics Readers of Mishima will not be the least surprised at his celebration of this particular set of values Ken Hollings goes deeper into the matters at hand Testimony of Clinton Edward Jencks focusing in his piece titled In the Slaughterhouse of Love on themes of darkness nudity penetration sacrifice and violence This evaluation refers both to Bataille s theoretical works and hisiction but again does not address the three pieces collected in this volume It is nevertheless of great value Hollings early in his piece The sexual act poses a threat to our being because it places no limit on experience During the act the body no longer has limit or definition it is dissolved into a storm of sensations which are violently superimposed and Ultimate Playstation Cheats and Codes -
