It is not about sex, but about moral. Transfer to Georges Bataille from Yukio Mishima
I found it very bitter at the beginning, I cannot enjoy the pleasure. But after the death of Marcelle, I found I accept the story. Eyeball are not just eye. They are all the same: eye, ball, egg, eggs.
A complex Oedipus complex.
Bataille has a fresh ethics. moral, sex, sin, transgress, shame... I think maybe it is because he has a different kind of Oedipus complex. Young boys like their mother, while he loves his father.
事情的顺序是这样的：His father was blind - He was born - He loved his father and hated his mother - his father became mad - he loved and hated his father - Father died - Mom went mad - He looked after his mom - he violent his mom to calm her - his mom died - he writed this novel.
French or Cult?
Quite a cult writer. but a lot of French fiction at that time seems to be highly eroticized, or have sexual violence, as well as surrealism. Genet, Anais Nin, and a century earlier, De Sade.
Pink and Dark
Ch9 Simone changed after the death of Marcelle. "These orgasms were as different from normal climaxes as, say, the mirth of savage Africans from that of Occidentals."
Ch10 "Little by little, the sun's radiance sucked us into an unreality that fitted our malaise - the wordless and powerless desire to explode and kick up our asses."
Ch12 "it's time to piss."
