A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Georges Bataille (1897-1962) was a philosopher, writer and literary critic who had an enormous impact on the thinking of Foucault, Derrida and Baudrillard. In this acclaimed intellectual biography Michel Surya examines Bataille s oeuvre against the backdrop of his life, showing that the essence of his life and work were defined by transience and effacement. His troubled childhood, his relationship with surrealism and his paradoxical position at the heart of twentieth-century French thought are vividly brought to life by testimonies from his closest acquaintances.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Georges Bataille was a philosopher, writer, librarian, pornographer and a founder of the influential journals Critique and Acéphale. He has had an enormous impact on contemporary thought, influencing such writers as Barthes, Baudrillard, Derrida, Foucault and Sontag. Many of his books, including the notorious Story of the Eye and the fascinating The Accursed Share, are modern classics.

In this acclaimed intellectual biography, Michel Surya gives a detailed and insightful account of Bataille’s work against the backdrop of his life – his troubled childhood, his difficult relationship with André Breton and the surrealists and his curious position as a thinker of excess, ‘potlatch’, sexual extremes and religious sacrifice, one who nonetheless remains at the heart of twentieth century French thought—all of it drawn here in rich and allusive prose. While exploring the source of the violent eroticism that laces Bataille’s novels, the book is also an acute guide to the development of Bataille’s philosophical thought. Enriched by testimonies from Bataille’s closest acquaintances and revealing the context in which he worked, Surya sheds light on a figure Foucault described as ‘one of the most important writers of the century’.

About the Author:

Michel Surya is a writer, philosopher, editor and director of the journal Lignes. The French edition of his book Georges Bataille was awarded the Prix Goncourt for biography.
