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

Πεταλούδες, πασχαλίτσες και «υψηλά νοήματα», αναδύονται μέσα απο τις σελίδες του συγκεκριμένου βιβλίου! Nοοοt!!!
Έκανα το λάθος να ξεκινήσω το διάβασμα του , τρώγοντας σοκολατάκια. Ένα θα σας πω. Το λατρεμένο και ευγενές αυτό προϊόν, στα μάτια μου δε θα ναι ποτέ πια ίδιο.
Να πω την αλήθεια, σε γενικές γραμμές νόμιζα πως ήξερα με τι είχα να κάνω. Ούτε καν. Χειρότερο από κάθε νοσηρή φαντασία. Πραγματικά, η ταινία “Texas Massacre” (που είναι ότι χειρότερο και αρρωστημένο έχω δει) μοιάζει με το «Μικρό
**2 Grotescas y depravadas ESTRELLAS**

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

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

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

La historia es simple, solamente narra las andanzas
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

Pues no estuvo tan verga como el título sugiere.
Luís C.
"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."

Todo el libro es un chiste, es decir, es un libro serio. De repente, estas líneas particularmente post-irónicas:

—Amigo mío —le dijo—, la masturbación es una virtud militar.
Todo buen soldado debe saber que en tiempo de guerra el onanismo es el único acto amoroso permitido. Masturbaos, pero no toquéis ni las mujeres ni las bestias.
Además, la masturbación es muy encomiable, pues permite a los hombres y a las mujeres acostumbrarse a su próxima y definitiva separación. Las costum

Ех... Отиде ми детството на кино :) Аполинер, един от най-любимите ми поети в лиричните тийнейджърски години... И изведнъж - еротика! Педерастия! Зоофилия! BDSM! И стихове... о, стиховете!!! И лафове в стил Сан Антонио! :) Ужас! Красота! Смях се искрено. Евала, Колибри, че в зората на демокрацията сте ни зарадвали с това порно-поетично бижу! :) :) :) Препоръчвам!

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.

Allez, allez. Je voulais lui donner deux sur cinq, mais je me suis ressaisi car l'histoire devient plus intéressante avec les pages. Le point principal est: la pornographie est fastidieuse à mourir. C'est pourquoi le début est pénible, puisque la pornographie est le seul sujet apparent, et après ça s'améliore un peu lorsque l'auteur commence à y ajouter un peu d'histoire. Quand après plusieurs pages on a passé en revue toutes les sortes d'accouplements entre des personnes du même ou différent se ...more

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

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.

Empieza bien, he de admitir que solté una que otra carcajada, pero poco a poco se vuelve aburrido y más de lo mismo.
Иван Величков
Велика книга!
Младият Аполинер показва точно как трябва да се пише политическа сатира. Грубо и безкомпромисно.
Прекарва цялото си съвремие през сексуална метафора, започвайки от Париж, минавайки на цяла Франция, а накрая и на световните взаимоотношения. Метафората обръща всичко в извратена сексуална игра, по която може да се напише учебник по психопатология. Колкото по-глобални стават нещата, толкова по-изродски стават перверзиите в книгата. Написана поетично и описателно показва точно какви изрод

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

No início parece bastante interessante, especialmente para quem gosta das coisas chamadas pelos nomes. É um livro com acção do início ao fim, começando no facto de todos os homens de quem se fala, serem adeptos da sodomia, que é abordada como algo tão corriqueiro como o sexo hetero (e muito bem), mas depressa passeamos entre relações incitadas por cheiro a gases intestinais, banhos de sangue e fezes, BDSM do mais puro e duro, sémen projectado em qualquer altura e na presença de quem quer que sej ...more

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.

Víctor Sampayo
Estrafalaria, sádica, grotesca, depravadamente divertida, llena de violencia y maldad, capaz de provocar en el lector espantosas náuseas y, a la escena siguiente, una carcajada con mucho de diabólica. Llegó un punto en el que comencé a pensar que las historias del Marqués de Sade lucen cándidas al lado de Las once mil vergas...

Difícil calificar este libro. Está en un umbral entre lo grotesco, lo cómico, lo erótico, lo vulgar, lo excitante y lo indignante.

Sin poder decir que me ha gustado, le doy cuatro estrellas porque consiguió hacerme sentir muchas cosas y una vez que empecé a leerlo me costó dejarlo.

Gana con facilidad el título de la novela más depravada, eso hay que concederle.
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.

Wilhelm Albert Włodzimierz Apolinary Kostrowicki, known as Guillaume Apollinaire (in French pronounced [ɡijom apɔliˈnɛʁ]) was a French poet, writer, and art critic born in Italy to a Polish mother.

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,
