This is the first collected English translation of Bataille's poems. Bataille's poetry is definitely the poetry of a philosopher, but it is also a poetry with an obsessively erotic, often scatological edge, frequently pushing the boundary of what is or isn't obscene. Bataille believed that everything relates to the workings of desire and death in sexuality, but he also believed that poetry was the product of "hate" (and other extreme emotions), just as much as erotic pleasure accedes to self-annihilation. But Bataille was interested in actual action, not just disengaged hypothesis concerning the sexual act. Dufour Editions is pleased to bring Bataille's poetry to print in English. "This is the audacious, frightful side of surrealism."-Library Journal "Bataille produced some of the most transcendent, pointedly filthy literature of the century, and these poems, together in English for the first time, are no exception."-Publishers Weekly

Georges Bataille's influence upon 20th-century philosophy is hard to overstate. His writing has transfixed his readers for decades – exerting a powerful influence upon Foucault, Blanchot and Derrida amongst many others. Today, Bataille continues to be an important reference for many of today's leading theorists such as Giorgio Agamben, Roberto Esposito, Jean-Luc Nancy and Adrianna Caverero. His work is a unique and enigmatic combination of mystical phenomenology, politics, anthropology and economic theory – sometimes adopting the form of literature, sometimes that of ontology. This is the first book to take Bataille's ambitious and unfinished Accursed Share project as its thematic guide, with individual contributors isolating themes, concepts or sections from within the three volumes and taking them in different directions. Therefore, as well as providing readings of Bataille's key concepts, such as animality, sovereignty, catastrophe and the sacred, this collection aims to explore new terrain and new theoretical problems.Georges Bataille and Contemporary Thought acts simultaneously as a companion to Bataille's three-volume secular theodicy and as a laboratory for new syntheses within his thought.

Carl Einstein In Documents And His Collaboration With Georges Bataille

The short-lived art magazine Documents (1929-30) has since the eighties become an object of increasing fascination to art historians and students of French intellectual culture. The light shed on Documents has not, however, dispelled the sense of mystery surrounding its two years of exuberant production, and sudden demise. What actually happened? The main figure associated with the magazine has been the writer Georges Bataille but a German novelist and art historian Carl Einstein was also centrally involved. What was he doing in Documents, and why has he disappeared from the picture? This book traces Einstein´s role, detailing his charged collaboration with the younger Bataille, which contributed to Documents´ collapse.

Georges Bataille was arguably the greatest influence on the poststructuralist revolution in twentieth-century thought and literature, yet few truly understand his work and legacy. Stuart Kendall now translates the work and life of this renowned French writer, anthropologist, and philosopher into a concise yet informative biography that reveals fascinating facets of this intellectual giant. Until his death in 1962, Bataille was an instrumental force in philosophical debate, acting as a foil for both Surrealism and Existentialism and advocating radical views that spanned the entire spectrum of political thought. Georges Bataille chronicles these aspects of his intellectual development, as well as tracing out his pivotal role in the creation of the College of Sociology and how his writings in aesthetics and art history laid the groundwork for visual culture studies. Kendall positions Bataille at the heart of a prodigous community of thinkers, including André Breton, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Jacques Lacan. A compelling account, Georges Bataille will be invaluable for all thinkers who have benefited from Bataille’s lasting contributions.

Divine Filth is a collection of long-overlooked erotic prose and scatological fragments rivaled only by Bataille's most well know work, Story of the Eye, for pure pornographic' content that transcends the limits of literature and the self. These are shattered mystic visions of a seminal Surrealist with a deep thirst for negation of consciousness through ecstasy, humiliation, depravity and pain. Comprised of two parts, 'Filthy' describes a descent into the scummy underworld of London's nightlife, while 'Divinity' describes drinking to excess and S&M pleasure.'

Poetry. Mark Spitzer's bold and colorful verse globetrots from the millennial Beatnik joints of Euro-Bohemia to the eagly mountains of Colorado to the junkyards of the West to the swamps of the Deep South and beyond. Sometimes lyrical, sometimes narrative, sometimes in-your-face, other times reverent, political and surreal, you can't help slapping your knees and laughing out loud when some annoying neighbor tries to sell his bbq sauce, when quiche is metaphoric for whence we all come, when muscle cars crash in Flashbakistan. This book is already a cult classic, a brick through the corporate window of America, a tribute to scum-sucking bottom feeders while the Twin Towers burn "in a genetic/jet fuel/inferno."

In its day, Andrei Codrescu's controversial and notorious anti-literary literary magazine Exquisite Corpse was a primary source rebellion, passion and black humor. Calculated to assault, shock, intrigue and reflect our anxious millennium fill the pages of this Corpse reader. A heady invitation to enjoy one's intellectual freedom while it lasts, the volume inscribes central (and edgy) poetic controversies, eulogizes and condemns, realizes and surrealizes, translates and travels across space and time to place us in all those wild worlds visited by the bizarre legion of Corpse correspondents.

Father O'Flugence knows there's nothing he can do. It's all in the hands of God now, or the Devil - who can tell the difference? The latter, of course, knows these people better. Father O'Flugence, however, believes in God no more than he believes in the Devil - he knows it's just an excuse for a job. What he does believe in is fraternity - but he knows he's in the wrong place for this. The island is an atrocity, its people are an abomination, and its future is just the same as its past: disaster. He closes his shutters, lets the storm hammer at his house, and pretends to pray. Father O'Flugence believes in Nature. He believes it has a mind of its own, but no destination. He believes that humans evolved from primates, and that some are still apes. He believes we are all part of a big mistake, that the species is corrupt, but that the storm is pure. Be warned: Chum is a sex-obsessed, scatological, deeply offensive, violent, disturbed, grim, funny, and horrific allegory, peopled by predatory sailors, murderous seahags, disillusioned bargirls, one shipwrecked porn star, and a degenerate legion of mentally retrograde alcoholic hicks and inbred grotesques.
