Volume 14. Visions of Excess Selected Writings, 1927-1939. Georges Bataille was born in 1897 and died in 1962; thus he was the contemporary of Andre Breton (1896-1966) and Louis Aragon (1897-1982), among others. Raised in and around Reims, Bataille experienced a difficult childhood at the hands of a paralyzed and blind, syphilitic father.
Georges Bataille was a French poet, novelist, and philosopher. He was born in Billon, Puy-de-Dome, in central France on September 10, 1897. His father was already blind and paralyzed from syphilis when Bataille was born. In 1915, Bataille's father died, his mind destroyed by his illness. The death marked his son for life. While working at the Bibliotheque National in Paris during the 1920s, Bataille underwent psychoanalysis and became involved with some of the intellectuals in the Surrealist movement, from whom he learned the concept of incongruous imagery in art.
Verstraete’s book is perhaps especially interesting for the ways in which its exploration of the feminine sublime intersect with recent work on both Byron and Joyce that revolves around the issue of gender
Stoekl, Carl R, Lovitt and Donald M. Leslie, Jr. (Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 1985 ), p. 118. Verstraete’s book is perhaps especially interesting for the ways in which its exploration of the feminine sublime intersect with recent work on both Byron and Joyce that revolves around the issue of gender. While I agree with much of what Verstraete has to say, and find her book fascinating, my focus is not so much on the sublime per se as on the ordinary and the everyday, on the capacity of the non-dramatic negativity of the fragmentary work to disclose things as they are.
