Rayano en la pedofilia, tal tipo de aventuras no es exclusivo en esta novelita: hay también incesto, adulterio, e incluso se sitúa muy próximo al acoso sexual y laboral, si no fuera porque todas las criadas de la casa acaban accediendo de muy buen grado a las acometidas del joven protagonista.

Las características del acto amoroso, por otra parte, podrían englobarse en un “coitus ininterruptus” a lo largo de 101 páginas. Lo raro es que el héroe regrese al estado de flacidez tras cada hazaña y, si

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

Menuda historia

Es el libro erótico más viejo que he leído, cien años, que loco.

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.

Ne okusam diye e-kitap klasikler kategorisinde bu kitabı buldum. Okuduğuma pek mutlu olamadım çünkü kitap baştan sonra seks içeriyordu. Erotik ögeler o kadar fazla ki, bazen yazarın abarttığını düşündüm.
Üzerine fazla konuşmak istemiyorum.

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!

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.

وظف غيوم أبولينير الجنس لتعرية الحياة التي بدأت للتو،
و كسر قالب المثالية داخل الحياة الأجتماعية ،

أول شبق
أول جسد عاري

مراعين بذلك المبدأ الأخلاقي و الأجتماعي الذي يؤثر على سير الحياة

Seguramente soy muy exigente y rarito (sí, seguro que soy ambos), pero este libro, que leí por curiosidad por ver cómo era la literatura erótica de hace un siglo, me ha parecido un truño. Bueno, el caso es que se deja leer, porque es muy cortito y tampoco se puede decir que sea aburrido, porque la acción es constante… pero no por eso deja de ser un coñazo (expresión que le viene al pelo, dado su contenido).

Probablemente le influye la época en que se escribió, pero si en aquel entonces esto les p

الكتاب خيالي و تنبيه مبطن على ما يجب أن تكون عليه العلاقات وما لا يجب أن أيكون، غير أن الطريقة التي كتبت بها الرواية فيها نوع من التآمر الخفي ضد كل ما هو فضيلة. تبقى رواية للتسلية، وهذا ما سيكتشفه القارئ في آخر صفحة

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 !!؟

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.

o despertar sexual de um jovem da cidade que vive num ambiente rural, rodeado de mulheres com quem vai explorando as novas descobertas. As confissões da mãe, o crescimento das irmãs, as empregadas da casa e da quinta, todas servem para desenrolar um novo rol de actividades sexuais. Inclui ainda pequenos apontamentos com referência a menstruações, funções corporais, fetiches militares ou dominação. Não falta também a crítica religiosa.

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

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.

Sarcasmo, erotismo y destrucción de lo humano. Es chocante, pero ese estremecimiento debe llevarte a otro lugar. No es una lectura para todos, pero después de todo, ¿qué lectura lo es? Es un libro fuerte, menos que las 11 mil vergas. Dadaísmo casi punk. Entendamos que de aquí beberán Burroughs y Ballard.

Apollinaire perseguía la belleza en la lírica y al monstruo humano en la prosa. Una vez que tenemos eso claro, podemos enfrentar mejor sus textos.

Pročitao jer je imam na polici. Nasmijava me sama pomisao na Apollinairea, pjesnika-dadaista koji piše erotski roman. Pretpostavljam da ih je pisao zbog novca. No, kako bilo, pošteno me nasmijao njegov humuristični način pisanja, upravo kao da se sprda sa žanrom. Rekao bih da svojim hiperboliziranjem i opscenim opisima vodi ironijski dijalog sa sladunjavim erotskim štivom. Zadnja rečenica u kojoj glavni lik kaže da čini patriotsku dužnost jer povećava natalitet svoje zemlje je kolosalna :)

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.

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.
Graeme Sutherland
Initially interesting but then settles down to repetitive porn. Too unpleasant in its detail to be that erotic - way too much menstrual flow for my taste. It's best quality is its mildly transgressive nature.

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,
