DIVINE FILTH - Lost Scatology and Erotic Writings by George Bataille


DIVINE FILTH: Lost Writings By George Bataille

Cover Art by Hans Bellmer


'Divine Filth' is a collection of long-overlooked minimal, experimental, erotic prose and scatological fragments - rivaled only by Bataille's most famous work 'Story of the Eye' for pure 'pornographic' content that transcends the limits of literature and self.

These are the shattered mystical visions of a Surrealist with a deep thirst for the negation of consciousness through the ecstasies of humiliation, depravity and pain.

The fragments come straight out of Bataille's private notebooks. The form is minimal and experimental - but the messages are always visionary. Rarely has such profanity risen to this level of the sacred and sublime - secreting absurdist bile, vertigo, nudity and anguish.
