9780971457898: ELEVEN THOUSAND RODS

Debauched aristocrat Mony Vibescu and a circle of his fellow sybarites blaze a trail of uncontrollable lust, bloody cruelty and depravity across the streets of Europe in Apollinaire's classic erotic novel. Written in 1906 after Apollinaire's researches at the Enfer section of the Bibliotheque Nationale in which he encountered the suppressed works of De Sade, Restif de la Bretonne and Andrea de Nerciat, The Eleven Thousand Rods is a startling modern response to these 'old masters' of erotica. This is the full, uncensored edition.

About the Author:

Guillaume Apollinaire was an important part of several avant-garde movements in French literature and art at the start of the twentieth century. His influences include the Symbolist poets of the former generation: Victor Hugo, Charles Baudelaire, Paul Verlaine, Arthur Rimbaud, Jules Laforgue, and Tristan Corbière, as well as pornographers from the same era such as de Sade. His work is often concerned with the clash between the modern and the traditional, often juxtaposing drastically different stylistic elements: it exhibits gritty modern imagery in traditional forms, for example. His book Peintres Cubistes (1913) expounded on the theory behind cubism and analyzed the work of important cubists. His play Les Mamelles de Tirésias, which was made into an opera by Francis Poulenc in 1947, is one of the earliest examples of Surrealism -- a word he is credited for coining.
