BATAILLE, Georges: The Impossible
BATAILLE, Georges. The Impossible. San Francisco: City Lights, 1991. First Thus. 200x138mm. Trade Paperback. Fine. 164pp. Translated by Robert Hurley. "In a philosophical erotic narrative, an essay on poetry, and in poems Georges Bataille pursues his guiding concept, the impossible. The narrator engages in a journey, one reminiscent of the Grail quest; failing, he experiences truth. He describes a movement toward a disappearing object, the same elusive object that moves Theresa of Avila and Catherine of Siena to ecstasy."
