Leon Bloy

Disagreeable Tales

€ 18.95


Thirty tales of theft, onanism, incest, murder and a host of other forms of perversion and cruelty from the `ungrateful beggar` and `pilgrim of the absolute,` Lâeon Bloy. `Disagreeable Tales,` first published in French in 1894, collects Bloy`s narrative sermons from the depths: a cauldron of frightful anecdotes and inspired misanthropy that represents a high point of the French Decadent movement and the most emblematic entry into the library of the `Cruel Tale` christened by Villiers de l`Isle-Adam. Whether depicting parents and offspring being sacrificed for selfish gains, or imbeciles sacrificing their own individuality on a literary whim, these tales all draw sustenance from an underlying belief: the root of religion is crime against man, nature and God, and that in this hell on earth, even the worst among us has a soul
