Las once mil vergas

Apollinaire publicó Las once mil vergas con sus iniciales entre 1906 y 1907, destinada a un círculo muy restringido, y pronto todos los salones mundanos y literarios de parís hablaban de ella en voz baja. Sin embargo, en los círculos culturales de vanguardia la identidad del autor de Las once mil vergas era un secreto a voces –Pierre Mac Orlan poseía un ejemplar de la prim ...more

I was introduced to Les onze mille verges by Matthew, who ought to be ashamed of himself. You'll recall that Socrates was put to death for corrupting the youth of Athens. I don't know what they did to youths who were found guilty of corrupting the middle-aged, but I'm sure it was very nasty.

I decided after mature reflection that I wasn't up the task of reviewing M. Appolinaire's masterpiece - though I will point out, for people who don't know French, that the title is a pun on Les onze mille vie

I find it exhilarating when I come across something as disgusting as The Story of the Eye or one of Sade's depraved stories. Les Onze Mille Verges is a very exhilarating little book. The story takes place in some sort of law-of-the-jungle world where every creature in said jungle is equipped with raging sex drives and occasionally murderous desires. No act, violent or not, seems to escape as the story contains sado-masochism in spades, coprophilia, watersports, necrophilia (including sex that do ...more

Classificado de romance “erótico” pontuado de humor, obscenidade e até erudição, é referenciado como “uma obra-prima”, por Pablo Picasso. De referir que Apollinaire e Picasso deveriam ser grandes amigos, posto que juntos levaram a cabo o roubo da Mona Lisa, em 1911. Apollinaire foi preso pelo suposto roubo. Estes pormenores da vida do autor são interessantes, mas nada nos prepara para o livro que intitulou de “As onze mil vergas”.
Por muito dúbio que o título seja, diria com grande segurança que

"Guillaume Apollinaire was one of the greatest modern poets of the French language, a learned and cultivated man, present in all the avant-garde movements to death in Paris in the year 1918. This book circulated for years in clandestine editions, but eventually found a place, full body, in the work of Apollinaire. No one will fail to recognize his spirit in such a monstrous book as tenderly erotic."


Personal opinion

Against all odds went back to give a chance to sadistic erotic literature (writi

Pues no estuvo tan verga como el título sugiere.
Azjericho
This book was maybe the first time I experimented with erotic literature. many people comdemn it for just being a "ludicrous and pornographic pamphlet", "to hell with them" is what Apollinaire answer to the bigotry of that criticism. Literature can't be mesaured in typified standards, it's the contrary! Literature breaks all the barriers imposed! Apollinaire gives use of his right to offend in a very humorous and sardonic way, and I respect it for that. A great writer, for the way he masters the ...more

Quem espera encontrar a bela poesia de Apollinaire neste livro considerado por Picasso como a obra prima do autor francês que fuja rápido das suas páginas. Se uma bolinha vermelha no canto superior alguma vez serviu para algo foi para afastar as pesssoas sãs deste livro. De início ao fim ele é angustiante e ler o livro por inteiro é mesmo um desafio, tamanha a sua repugnância. Orgias, incesto, sadomasoquismo, homosexualidade, necrofilia, pedofilia, abuso sexual de animais, e outras tendências di ...more

Esto es porno crudo con fachada de erótico. No hay nada mas que eso en este libro, no hay reflexión solo perversión. Aún así lo recomiendo, ya que nos abre la mente a un mundo diferente, uno donde todo esta permitido, como un escape de lo mas pornográfico de nuestro ser.
Brenda
Repetitivo y de mal gusto. Todas las perversiones del mundo están concentradas en estas 180 páginas y yo soy demasiado buena niña para Apollinaire. Sin embargo, tiene algo.

"Si no hago el amor veinte veces seguidas, que las once mil virgenes u once mil vergas me castiguen."


HOMBRES cuidado con lo que prometen, o les puede pasar como al principe Mony.

No crei tener estomago suficiente para soportar todas las atrocidades que muestra esta historia. Creo que lo unico que me llevo a terminarlo fue para ver si nuestro querido principe tendria su castigo, y el morbo por supuesto.

La historia es simple, solamanete narra las andanzas de un jov

C'est la chose la plus répugnante qu'il m'ait été donné de lire.....

No sé si sentirme ofendido, o molesto, o repugnado o divertido. Raya entre lo grotesco y lo repulsivo con un toque de "humor" y mucho mal gusto. Simplemente es un libro extraño, que no dudo que Apollinaire tuviera muchas razones para publicarlo anónimamente.
Gloria Dauden
Tiene pasajes muy desagradables, pero se lee en un momento y merece la pena. Desde luego es imposible que te deje indiferente.

Dont' know what to think about this one...
Peter Castine
Not so much that I "liked" it. There is something here to revolt and offend anyone and everyone. But it is well written, cleverly constructed, and has a sense of humor (if an extremely perverse one).

Also, a considerable bit of vocabulary that I haven't had in my previous reading of French literature.

Scadente.

Las barbaridades que hay contenidas en esta obra, únicamente pueden ser producto de una mente retorcida, una mente con una clara tendencia al hedonismo. Sin embargo es bueno leer y descubrir este tipo de lecturas para tener una referencia cultural sobre el autor o la obra.

Χμμ. Αυτό δεν λέγεται εύσχημα, οπότε ας το πετάξω χύμα: Φαντάζομαι ότι έκανε μεγάλη εντύπωση στην εποχή του, αλλά σήμερα απλώς δεν διαβάζεται. Για την ακρίβεια είναι τόσο κακογραμμένο, που απορώ πώς το εκδίδουν ακόμα.
Петър Стойков
Порно-роман от началото на 20 в., от който се разбира, че и тогава хората са си били извратени, както и че са таяли необяснима любов към обилното интимно окосмяване при жените.

No me ha gustado, me ha parecido innecesariamente asqueroso, pero tiene que haber de todo. Yo ya he saciado mi curiosidad, sabía que es un libro fuerte y ahora pasaré página.. Borrón y libro nuevo.

"Las escenas de pederastía, de safismo, de necrofilia, de escatomanía, de bestialidad se combinan de la forma mas armoniosa."
Amandine
Très amusant, bien qu'un peu lassant par moments. Apollinaire utilise beaucoup de jeux de mots, notamment sur le nom des personnages (Vibescu, Cusculine, Cornaboeux) ou le titre (les onze mille verges/vierges), et sait varier les situations qu'il rend drôles et/ou cruelles. J'ai beaucoup moins aimé ces dernières: la cruauté gratuite me dégoute plus qu'elle ne m'amuse ; Apollinaire a écrit des scènes violentes, mais sans cruauté, que je trouve bien plus réussies. C'est pour cette raison que je pr ...more

Among the foremost poets of the early 20th century, he is credited with coining the word surrealism and writing one of the earliest works described as surrealist, the play Les Mamelles de Tirésias (1917,
