CHARACTERS Le bleu du ciel

Set against the backdrop of Europe’s slide into Fascism this twentieth century erotic classic takes the reader on a dark journey through the ps Unlike Story of the Eye Blue of Noon doesn’t boast excess of sexual symbols but there is a profusion of existential signs instead All that nausea and sickness and sualor of living so cherished by Jean Paul Sartre are already in this novelette And the main hero’s obsession with necrophilia symbolizes an abhorrence of the pending stream of death In front of them their leader – a degenerately skinny kid with the sulky face of a fish – kept time with a long drum major's stick He held this stick obscenely erect with the knob at his crotch it then looked like a monstrous monkey's penis that had been decorated with braids of coloured cord Like a dirty little brute he would then jerk the stick level with his mouth; from crotch to mouth from mouth to crotch each rise and fall jerking to a grinding salvo from the drums The sight was obscene It was terrifying – if I hadn't been blessed with exceptional composure how could I have stood and looked at these hateful automatons as calmly as if I were facing a stone wall Each peal of music in the night was an incantatory summons to war and murder The drum rolls were raised to their paroxysm in the expectation of an ultimate release in bloody salvos of artillery I looked into the distance a children's army in battle order They were motionless nonetheless but in a trance I saw them so near me entranced by a longing to meet their death hallucinated by the endless fields where they would one day advance laughing in the sunlight leaving the dead and the dying behind themThe tale is prophetic In the tumultuous times hysteria prevails

Yche of the pre war French intelligentsia torn between identification with the victims of history and the glamour of its victors One of Bataille To a greater or lesser extent everyone depends on stories on novels to discover the manifold truth of life Only such stories read sometimes in a trance have the power to confront a person with his fate Of this I am sure only an intolerable impossible ordeal can give an author the means of achieving that wide ranging vision that readers weary of the narrow limitations imposed by convention are waiting forGeorges Bataille Author’s Foreword 1957In Blue of Noon as in all his fictions – though to my knowledge Blue of Noon is his most explicitly personal – Georges Bataille put his money where his mouth was Agree with his manifesto or not and I’ll admit the older I get the restrictive it seems the less adventurous the less admirable you can’t miss his singleminded dedication to it which gives his best work a thrust normally felt in thrillers though powered almost entirely by this strange writer’s obsessions True it’s not just the suffering but his warped take on sex that’ll compell you but in Blue of Noon like Hitchcock he seems to have perfected unseen fuelled suspense and there’s no need to explicate what is manifest in his characters’ actionsIn London in a cellar in a neighbourhood dive – the most sualid of unlikely places – Dirty was drunk Utterly so I was next to her my hand was still bandaged from being cut by a broken glass Dirty that day was wearing a sumptuous evening gown I was unshaven and unkempt As she stretched her long legs she went into a violent convulsion The place was crowded with men and their eyes were getting ominous; the eyes of these perplexed men recalled spent cigars Drunkenness had committed us to dereliction in pursuit of some grim response to the grimmest of compulsionsWhat I love about Bataille is his clearsightedness And his resolve to tell the truth about the processes at work on his dissolute narrator a truth which we presume and Bataille does as much as acknowledge he could only know by having endured it even at the nadir of that barely sketched character’s infamy Blue of Noon revolves around the axis of humiliation In scene after scene we witness the urge to humiliate in the hurt and unhappy – in the narrator Troppmann whose failed marriage has led him via a series of prostitutes to an impotent codependence with the cruel but beautiful or in his eyes beautiful because cruel Dirty and then into bored victimising of the lost Xenie That despite himself he’s drawn also into the orbit of the would be revolutionary Lazare though because he reuires “a bird of ill omen” to keep him company than from any social conscience which would be trite seems merely another instance of his bullying since one thing he knows in his bones is that Europe’s doomed and every time he purges himself in confession to this good Christian virgin he can’t help but shock her with doom laden pronouncements out of shame at his own helplessness It’s ugly but powerful He’s far far from a hero but eually no villain no death’s head no gargoyle What Bataille does here – and I don’t think it’s been done often – is reveal just how vulnerable a cruel man can be Sensitive too And aware of his own cruelty All of which just compounds his sufferingFor readers of the 2001 Penguin edition and probably the 2012 edition Will Self pens an impressive introduction comparing the novel to an out of control car “It is as if some cloaca God were to descend to someone who was labouring on the torture throne of constipation and deliver them a laxative balm” I don’t know what that means but I like it and in general Self has some interesting things to say here comparing “Bataille’s own view of lust as an annihilator of human difference to the way the Nazis’ lust for power threatened humanity with annihilation” Blue of Noon is set in various European cities in the lead up to the Second World WarFor those unfamiliar with Bataille The Story of the Eye is in English his most famous work though My Mother Madame Edwarda The Dead Man a novel and two short works published by Marion Boyars in 1989 and 1995 and again by Penguin in 2012 is eually rich startling and powerful His Eroticism also comes highly recommended but I started to grow away from his vision before I read it and have only revisited him recently from an urge to consolidate that period and set something of it in writing Call him an influence but not a favourite Brilliant because uniue because so few have attempted what he attempts But doomed to circle the same terrain ad nauseum much as it may be his own
