Review Text

  • By H. Tee on 10 April 2017

    This is the 1965 historical novel by French man Klossowski. This is the kind of book which is written in an impenetrable style upon which thousands of words of analysis, detailed forewords (i.e. in this case Michel Foucault), explanatory notes by the author at the end and reviews could be expended; this is because it needs explaining as it’s so confused, the ideas are so deep and it’s based upon fascinating historical events related to the Knight’s Templars (‘Baphomet’ is the supposed Satanic idol they worshipped). The author includes 4 illustrations of the events.It seems like pageboy Ogier is hanged in the presence of the Grand Master under the orders of the king who wants to implicate the Templars in sordid behaviours. It turns out that the Grand Master (re)experiences the event as the King and/or the Old Templar who lusts over the boy; whilst the page is actually the androgynous Theresa. Every soul is one breath. There are also ants and an ant eater.This is another ‘forget trying to follow the story’ enjoy the ‘flashes of ideas’ book. And to be fair this one I didn’t get (perhaps because I'm not religious?), mainly because it is far too deliberately highbrow and intellectual, and ultimately I don’t think the book achieved what it set out to i.e. pretty pointless. To be fair unlike, say ‘Finnegans Wake’, it is readable so I’ll stretch to 3 stars.Perhaps this quote says it all “You who failed to nourish yourself with the virgin milk of a sorceress, drink a bitch’s seeds from the phallus of a play-actress"
