The Solar Anus by Georges Bataille

Paginated PDF

The Solar Anus is a Surrealist text written by the French writer and philosopher Georges Bataille.

Albeit elliptically, its aphorisms refer to decay, death, vegetation,natural disasters, impotence, frustration, ennui and excrement. It makes ironic reference to the sun, for, although it brings life to the Earth, it can also result in death due to its unrestrained  energies. Moreover, the anus should be seen to be an expression of the inevitability of residual waste due to its role in excretion.]
