"It is not right that everyone should read the pages which follow;
only a few will be able to savour this bitter fruit with impunity."
- Lautréamont (1846-1870)


   One of the earliest and most astonishing examples of surrealist writing, Lautréamont's fantasy unveils a world - half-vision, half-nightmare - of angels and gravediggers, hermaphrodites and pederasts, lunatics and strange children. The writing is drenched with an unrestrained savagery and menace, and the grandiose by turns - possesses a remarkable hallucinatory quality.
