Maldoror fucks a sha In a work reminiscent of the sort of wonderfully mindless and meandering crap that you’d expect from a trench-coated, emotionally or sexually insecure teen, the titular Maldoror, shark-fucker and god-hater extraordinaire, weaves his black and demonic way through a pastiche of abominations. Some of these authors ARE very good, and worthy of being respected as great writers if not family guysbut others seem to lautdeamont become totally psychotic and took up a pen while blitzed or having an episode of mental derangement.

For example in one chapter, [d] a funeral procession takes a boy to his grave and buries him, with the officiant condemning Maldoror; the following chapter [e] instead presents a laytreamont of a sleeping man seemingly Maldoror who is repeatedly bitten by a tarantula which emerges from the corner of his room, every night.

How feeble, how ungainly man seems when compared to this creature, how unlike a God. Throughout, Maldoror rails lautrewmont human weakness of character, hypocrisy, cantks for fame and money, etc. Long heralded as a kind of “work of evil”, it’s clear almost from the get-go that this is a colossal joke which merits closer study. Children, one assumes because they are representative of innocence and purity, are paid special attention, with Maldoror extolling the pleasures of abusing and then freeing them, so that one is seen as both their torturer and their saviour.

Grotesque and macabre, Maldoror was something which seemed to me one-of-a-kind. French, Spanish and English. For example in one case, Maldoror copulates with a sharkeach admiring the others’ violent nature, while in another, the narrator has a pleasant dream that he is a hog. Her name is Prostitution. Maldoror fights a running battle against God in rhino form in the streets of Paris.

Oh, and some hedgehogs hollowed out your scrote and live there now. Maldoror is so ridiculous, his spoutings so inane and stupid, that it’s hard to take him seriously but in this day and age with our glorification of ve villain and the now rancid banality of evil, it seems that people might be missing the point here.

He does, however, identify with outcasts, with prostitutes [with whom he claims to have made a pact to ruin families] and hermaphrodites. Thus such elements as collage were introduced, arising partly from an ideal of startling juxtapositions as revealed in Pierre Reverdy’s poetry.

Other anecdotes are more directly pertinent to the work. Or as Lautreamont would put it, bad god.

In the future, I plan to skip anything published by Solar Books, if only out of spite. At best, some really wonderful books are written. For example, an early passage [c] warns the reader not to continue:.

On seeing these spectacles, I wanted to laugh with the others, but such a strange imitation was impossible, so I took a sharp-edged penknife and slit my flesh in the two places my lips joined.

It is when the hero decides to shoot a survivor as he swims towards the shore that the scene is taken into the realm of comedy [although you may argue that what it provokes is the uncomfortable laughter of disbelief].

He tortures se kills male children, cuts up people after murdering them, shoots swimmers escaping from a shipwreck, disses god almighty himself, even spying on god while lovemaking which actually isn’t as interesting as it sounds – hint hint: But regardless of Dent’s skill as a translator, the book is severely marred by numerous typos—the least of which simply annoy the reader, while the worst seriously limit one’s understanding of the text.


I think it is possible the author actually did some of these lajtreamont in a manner with no fantasy elements or saw them done. Either way, I find it now to be—when not mildly absurd comedy—rather dull and trite. Maldoror is primarily divided into six parts, or cantos ; these parts are further subdivided into a total of sixty chapters, or verses. They are still-born latureamont the scorched paper like sparks the rapid extinction of which the eye can hardly follow.

And—as in Magritte’s case where there is no obvious recourse to either automatic techniques or collage —the very notion of convulsive joining became lautgeamont tool for revelation in and of itself.
