Eyeballs, testicles, vaginas, etc.

Here's a nice article on Georges Bataille, a writer whose work is difficult, but worth the trouble.

"Shunned by mainstream surrealism for his attraction to all that is "soiled, senile, rank, sordid", Bataille saw that we can no more be healthy without embracing darkness than a tree be loath to dirty its roots by placing them in the ground. In a world moving further away from the shadowy yet nourishing earth, this insight is more urgent than ever."
