Example text

For Bataille, the pineal eye will mark the hole at the top. On Bataille Bataille: abattage d'humain betail. ) Michel Leiris, Glossaire: j'y serre mes gloses So. Is this to be a study on Bataille? or over him? or above him? Writing on is the epitome of a discourse iri control, calmly assured of its position. It is deployed with complete assurance in a realm over which it has taken possession, one it has inventoried after first closing it off, to make sure it is absolutely safe. This discourse runs no risk at all: it is not uneasy about the future, it steadily expands.

And it is not in vain that former centuries raised such a hope in God. The light I described for you is not dulled but transfigured by sorrow and anguish. You are the ones from whom she awaits renewal, for she is none other than a direct manifestation of Our Lady; and she shows you the light along the way leading to Christ. Others work for liberation in tortures such that they cannot be written except with bleeding hands, and truly Christ alone was able to write them with his blood. You must be worthy of those who suffer thus for you.

There is absolutely no doubt that it was written before 1 920, the year in which Bataille broke with Catholicism. " If we set aside the dissertation L'Ordre de chevalerie published in 1 922 as his thesis at l' E cole des Chartes, his unsigned 1 926 note on medieval "Fatrasies" that ap- 15 Notre-Dame d e Rheims peared in La Revolution surrealiste, and the notes and articles on num­ ismatics written between 1 926 and 1 929 for Arethuse, ten years of a silence that is broken only for professional reasons separate Notre­ Dame de Rheims from Bataille's first writings : Histoire de l'oeil, L'Anus solaire, the text "L'Amerique disparue;' and the first articles in Docu­ ments (the first two of which-"Le Cheval academique" and "L'Apo­ calypse de Saint-Sever" -moreover, both in subject matter and the second in its form as well, are directly related to his practice as a librarian) .
