Założę się - rzekła - że nasikam na obrus

Bardzo ładna pornografia. Czytelników wyobrażam sobie dwojako:


Pierwszy/pierwsza spąsowieje, poczym wyrzuci książkę do śmieci. Będzie pewnie zasmucony/zasmucona, a w razie niewygodnych pytań pospiesznie stwierdzi, że to osobliwy tekst źródłowy, ważny dla historii społecznej, ale nic ponadto.


Drugi/druga po prostu się podnieci, a następnie odda w szpony samogwałtu.


Georges Bataille, Historia Oka, słowo/obraz terytoria

Pornografia - Tomasz Barcinski,Witold Gombrowicz Gombrowicz is a unique writer, very difficult to translate into English. This book was translated by a winner of the Polish government's "Found in Translation" award, which she won partly on the basis of this translation. What I find interesting about Gombrowicz is that his two biggest insights into human nature--that even as adults we all feel immature and that people's personalities change depending on whom they interact with--are turned by him into very interesting and provocative novels and plays. "Pornografia" engages both these themes as it minutely dissects the consciousness of its narrator, who is named, not coincidentally, "Witold Gombrowicz." It's a brilliant book, but it's sort of hard to describe what its appeal is--it's definitely NOT pornography (although that is indeed the meaning of the Polish word "pornografia"). Just really good, provocative writing, about stuff that most American books are not about, I guess.

Cosmos and Pornografia: Two Novels
Cosmos and Pornografia: Two Novels - Witold Gombrowicz,Alastair Hamilton,Eric Mosbacher so far i've finished Cosmos. Taking a little break now. This was possibly the most disturbing story I've ever read. Not so much a mystery, not so much a story, sort of a step by step detailed description of how mediocrity can easily lead to insanity. kind of upsetting in a way, but with some really incredible moments.

Three Novels: Ferdydurke / Pornografia / Cosmos (An Evergreen Book)
Three Novels: Ferdydurke, Pornografia, and Cosmos (An Evergreen book) - Witold Gombrowicz Fredydork, pornography, and assmos. Bloody awful. Worst three novels I ever read. Maybe the translation was bad. It probably didn't help that I read them one after the other. To think one of these almost won a literary prize is almost beyond belief. These are the kind of books that the "literati" rank high because it's supposed to be deep and they think it cannot really be as dull and pointless as it is.Somebody out there prove me wrong. I'm dying to know what the author is on about.I recently gave this away to a library because I thought someone there might be able to figure it out.
