Ce texte est un roman érotique français du début du vingtième siècle écrit par Guillaume Apollinaire, un poète. L'histoire n'a pratiquement plus rien à voir avec le mythe de Don Juan, si ce n'est qu'il est question d'un homme et de plusieurs femmes, mais notre héros n'a rien ici d'un séducteur hypocrite, malin et trompeur. Ces moyens sont inutiles, comme le remarquait Charles Perrault dans son Chat Botté, pour qui a l'habit, la mine et la jeunesse. Ici, on est également bien loin des écrits libe

Poet/playwright/author Guillaume Apollinaire was a pretty important guy in his day. He is said to have coined the term “Surrealism” and to have written one of the earliest surrealist plays. He was a big deal in Montparnasse, and moved in some heady artistic circles. He was wounded in WWI and died from Spanish Flu. I’ve always meant to read something of his, and last month I decided to make it Amorous Exploits of a Young Rakehell, otherwise known as Les exploits d'un jeune Don Juan, because of Ch ...more

I ... um ... I don't think I can give this a starred review. Rating does not compute, because it didn't feel quite like a "real" book to me. More like ... a primitive attempt to create a virtual reality experience. You see, you hear, you smell, you taste, explicitly and that's the whole point, the only reason for being there. Fun, for sure, but not to be judged exactly by my usual standards. So here goes the attempt to word my thoughts on these Amorous Exploits.

What are you in for if you read th

The guidance, from an early age, of a child, in the initiation of sexual activity, if not properly supported, could become something nostalgic, due to certain constraints which they have produced ..

Je ne devrais vraiment pas être surprise, étant donné le titre, mais j'aurai pu faire sans les scènes incestueuses et limite pédophiles. C'est, en résumé, un livre porno d'époque..
Le livre m'a vaguement rappelé (en moins sadique) le peu de Sade que j'ai lu, qui n'était pas non plus mon ecrivain préféré!

I was young, what can I say? It all sounded realistic then.

أردت قراءته بسبب موضوعه الذي جعل منه كتاباً مشهوراً و محظوراً في بعض البلدان، و بعد قراءته وجدت أنه مبتذل بشكل كبير و فقير من ناحية المعلومات التاريخية أو الإجتماعية لذلك البلد أو لتلك الحقبة.

مجرد سرد لمغامرات جنسية لطفل ثائر جنسياً
طفل يتلصص على جسد أمه و خالته و أخته الصغرى و الكبرى في الحمام، و يمارس الجنس مع أخته و مع خادمات المنزل الرخيصات و الخائنات، الغريب هو أنه لم يجرب المثلية أو الجنس مع الحيوانات
عندما يمارس الجنس مع الفتيات هو لا يمتنع أن يقوموا بلمس مؤخرته !!؟

أعجبتني اللوحة التشكيلية

One of the great French classics of erotica of the early 20th century, by a noted French poet who was injured in World War I and died in the flu epidemic of 1918.
Stephen
I know Apollinaire as a poet--in fact, a poet I greatly admire. So I was surprised to come across this small book in a cluttered but charming used bookstore in Plurien, a Breton village on Cap Frehel. Hmmm. Well, the French was relatively easy because, like so much erotica, it was the same thing over and over and over again. The ending, I must say, did bring a smile to my face, as the young narrator congratulates himself on helping increase the population of his native country through his variou ...more

Guillaume Apollinaire is one of the greatest poet of the XXth century. Let me give for beginning a quote from him:

And how I love, O season, how I love your rumbling
The falling fruits that no one gathers
The wind in the forests that are trumbling
All their tears in autumn, leaf by leaf
The leaves
You press
A crowd that flow
The life
That goes

That is the poet.
In this novel, we don't find the poet, far from.

Es una obra entretenida. Es pornográfico y sin trasfondo, pero entretiene. No puedo hacer un análisis mas profundo, simplemente fue entretenido.

Bu kitabı okumak yerine forumlardan 4-5 adet erotik hikaye okuyun. Emin olun aralarında hiç fark yok.
Chris Jones
As an "erotic" novel, this is a spectacular failure-any book that tries to get you hot with incest and scatology has pretty much lost the battle before it's even begun. As a bizarre curiosity it is kind of compelling: It's rare to see books with such vulgar content be written so plainly. This guy writes about fingering his sister with all the panache and stylistic bravado of a middle-school book report. WTF cred aside, this is not a good novel by any stretch of the imagination, in language, plot ...more

This book is interesting, and the main character infuriates me less than I had expected. It's the story of a young man whose curiosity leads him to have sex with nearly all the women he knows, eligible or not, close family or not, and he manages to come up with a moral justification for it, too. It did make me think about some of the differences between French conceptions of women's sexuality and American ideas of the same.
Scott
This is pure porn written for money by a young Apollinaire. The funny thing about this book was that when I was reading it, I began to get involved in the skeletal plot and was annoyed by the constant intrusion of the sex scenes. And, of course, the sex scenes were the entire point of the book.
tENTATIVELY, cONVENIENCE
I'm sure I was thrilled to be reading an erotica bk by a great French poet associated w/ Surrealism.. but, then, it just seemed like disappointingly regular porn. I was hoping for something a bit more bizarre. I was probably too young & inexperienced to appreciate the humor.
Jenni
Became interested in his erotic writings just recently, though some might call this pornography. It's very sexually candid, and I actually appreciated that about it. As for the story, well he does the maid, his sister, and pretty much anyone else who is remotely willing.
Edwige
Apollinaire nous livre un roman sensuel, poétique, excitant mais aussi provocant et drôle où Roger, jeune adolescent découvre les plaisirs amoureux et la volupté sous toutes ses formes.

Probably one of the most vile books I've ever read in my life... Incest, bodily functions, period blood, etc. So bad but so good.
Ombeline
C'est spécial. Je ne saurai pas lui mettre de note, car je n'ai pas de point de comparaison en littérature érotique.
Matthew
Lovers of De Sade, Bataille, and even other works by Apollinaire, beware! This isn't as good.
