Maldoror is a long narrative prose poem which celebrates the principle of Evil in an elaborate style and with a passion akin to religions fanaticism The French poet critic Georges Hugnet has written of Lautr amont He terrifies, stupefies, strikes dumb He could look squarely at that which others had merely given a passing glance When first published in 1868 69, MaldorMaldoror is a long narrative prose poem which celebrates the principle of Evil in an elaborate style and with a passion akin to religions fanaticism The French poet critic Georges Hugnet has written of Lautr amont He terrifies, stupefies, strikes dumb He could look squarely at that which others had merely given a passing glance When first published in 1868 69, Maldoror went almost unnoticed But in the 1890s the book was rediscovered and hailed as a work of genius by such eminent writers as Huysmans, L on Block, Maeterlinck, and R my de Gourmont Later still, Lautr amont was to be canonized as one of their principal ancestors by the Paris surrealists This edition, translated by Guy Wernham, includes also a long introduction to a never written, or now lost, volume of poetry Thus, except for a few letters, it gives all the surviving literary work of Lautr amont.

  1. 1 Before reading Rimbaud I thought I would see fireworks the problem was that I had read Lautr amont first Michel Houellebecq 2 After reading the last part of Les Chants de Maldoror I thought of giving up literature due to embarrassment of my own literary achievements Andr Gide in a diary entry, in 1905 3 Lautr amont has been the biggest influence on my writing career My books are toys for adults who have read Lautr amont C sar Aira This book embraces both classical rules of art craft, depth and [...]

  3. Well wasn t that a ride, boys and girls Maldoror is a trip, and what a trip it is.Being 20, I enjoyed the adolescent tone and nature of this prose poem, however I can see how other readers may view it as nothing than grotesque random scenes with at times almost incoherent babbling.The lack of central plot, and disjointed style of the story often led me to be confused, but I don t think that is necessarily a bad thing I appreciate when others try to take a step out of the contemporary novel of t [...]

If you have been following my reviews for any length of time you will be aware that there are many things of which I am afraid Spiders Fatherhood Demonic possession Death Yet it is increasingly the shark that haunts my mind like he haunts the sea, silently slicing through the darkness until he is upon me, intent on ripping out my throat He is a ghoul, shaped like a knife blade He is swift and agile madness, with the skin of an elephant and teeth like the sharpest shards of glass How feeble, how [...]


  5. The beginning of Canto the First May it please Heaven that the reader, emboldened and become of a sudden momentarily ferocious like what he is reading, may trace in safety his pathway through the desolate morass of these gloomy and poisonous pages For unless he is able to bring to his reading a rigorous logic and a spiritual tension equal at least to his distrust, the deadly emanations of this book will imbibe his soul as sugar absorbs water The beginning of Canto the Second What has been the fa [...]



  6. The wish to be a pig is a desperation arising from the inability to be human Sreten Mari on Les Chants de MaldororThe six chants of Maldoror are an untouchable literal success through the scopes of dadaist and surrealist intention and Lautr amont s personal artistic catharsis It might be a somewhat subjective and unprofessional thing to say, but I am certain that the writing process was exhilarating, and it could not have been so had it not been burdened by its classic form, since Ducasse as he [...]

  9. Les Chantes de Maldoror is best known for the praise afforded to it by the Surrealists Of course, their infatuation is completely understandable within these hallucinogenic pages, one may find the now famous line comparing beauty to the random encounter between an umbrella and a sewing machine upon a dissecting table But despite the obvious temptation, I strongly believe that we should avoid viewing Isidore Ducasse s magnum opus through the anachronistic lens of influence i.e as a dark progenito [...]


  10. Third line It would not be well that all men should read the pages that are to follow a few only may savor their bitter fruit without danger Well you know what mysterious French guy from the 1800s I fucking loved it.I was assigned to read two short excerpts of this for class, and instead of getting through it with the minimum pieces of flair, I read the whole thing I couldn t not fuck you double negative police This book is consider the ancestor of surrealism, and having been written in the 1860 [...]


  11. Good god Or as Lautreamont would put it, bad god.Sometimes you fuck sharks after shipwrecks Other times you get your jollies squeezing out the skulls of small children Oh, and some hedgehogs hollowed out your scrote and live there now Etc etc etc When Lautreamont was a young man, he wrote some wild ass surrealist shit that went on to inspire countless legions in France as well as a fair number of punk rock types in the Anglosphere It s not haunting, transcendent genius or anything like that, but [...]


  12. This is THE BOOK And when I say that, I mean it Isidore Ducasse, Better Known as The Count of Lautr amont, is the L enfant terrible by excellence When you read the poetry of these pages, get prepared for all the misantrophy and rage emanated from the letters, but behind all you will meet the solitude of a young spirit confronted with the hipocrisy and banality of a cowardly society Maldoror will make you laugh, cry, love, hate, live and die he is the avatar of rebeldy, and with beautiful surreal [...]



  13. I m not impressed There s no plot and no structure, just page after page of debauchery It s like one of the ridiculous sections of Naked Lunch, but for 300 pages It is kind of funny sometimes, though, like when the narrator has sex with a shark I thought only Led Zeppelin groupies did that.

  16. 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.I can reduce its broad inanity to a few main themes Maldoror sits on a bench next to an 8 year old and feeds him evil thoughts.Maldoror shoots shipwreck survivors as they crawl onto shore.Maldoror fucks a shark [...]


  17. When I was at university, a TA in one of my poetry courses gave me this book and I was completely fascinated by it Grotesque and macabre, Maldoror was something which seemed to me one of a kind Now, years later, I ve revisited it in short, I was not so enthralled this second time around Perhaps its the fault of a modern sensibility, perhaps I m a bit cynical than when I first encountered Lautr mont Either way, I find it now to be when not mildly absurd comedy rather dull and trite To be fair, t [...]


  18. Entirely unknown in its time, this work was eventually rediscovered by the surrealists who hailed it as one of the two masterpieces that informed their movement, especially the line The chance encounter on a dissecting table of a sewing machine and an umbrella The Songs of Maldoror is a long imagistic prose poem about a relentless and possibly demonic anti hero who has renounced God, mankind, and ultimately himself Camus was also fascinated about this work and there are shadows of Maldoror in Th [...]

  20. This edition is not as good as Alexis Lykiard s translation, but nowhere near as poor as Lykiard would have us believe.


  21. After ending the chants I was convinced to write a review in order to give hints towards the approach of the writer, however the poesies, which is the most likely only part that I couldn t understand discouraged to do it It is rather a funny idea to provide a sort of a commentary to the symbolic writers this work is not surrealist in any sense , and even though my part would exist to further embellish the Maldoror, the poesies is written in such a way to disperse those such sympathies, even thou [...]


  22. Poema satanico, composto da sei canti in prosa, che esprimono tutto il feroce disprezzo del diabolico Maldoror, nei confronti della societ , di Dio, e dell uomo Forse, secondi per crudelta solo al Marchese de Sade, questi versi costituiscono un opera fondamentale ed insuperata della letteratura maledetta dell 800, grazie ad uno stile visionario e soffocante Qui, il romanticismo dei canti si spoglia dei panni dell a, e tramite un operazione deformante riveste quelli dell odio, stordendo il lettor [...]

  24. I picked this up because I d seen it on some list of weirder Gothic novels While I can see how it could very easily have been influenced by Lewis s The Monk possibly via Sade , it didn t really have any sort of Gothic feel that I could discern But I also had no idea what was going on half the time, so who knows.Lykiard s translation was poetic, but after the initial shock gasp sensation wore off around page 20 , I wanted narrative So maybe I ll pick it up again when I m in of a Surrealistic mo [...]
