Example text

Lazare is yet another French Marxist intellectual in Barcelona, a young woman who simultaneously fascinates and repels Troppmann because of her political passion and authority—and also because he finds her sexually unattractive, an ugly ‘dirty virgin’ in contrast to the beautiful, exciting Dirty. ) Troppmann’s association of the workers with Lazare evokes a crucial earlier scene that occurred while he was still in Paris. Just before falling ill, but already in a feverish state, Troppmann visits Lazare in her apartment, which she shares with her stepfather, a professor of philosophy.

The workers’ movements which rally to the cause of Communism aptly express the ‘taste for living without delay’ (OC, VII, 145) which characterizes the sovereign. So it is clear that Bataille feels consistent in declaring his interest for Communism. I have mentioned elsewhere the book by Dionys Mascolo, Le communisme: revolution et communication, published in 1953, which shares with La part maudite the hope that man will be restored to himself through the realization of Marx’s programme. But Bataille doesn’t stop there: he knows that life in the USSR is not all roses, and that there is a long way between the ideal and the real.

Finally, we come back to the essential point: the intellectual is emotive because he expects only the worst, without being able to be satisfied with how things are: always between revolt and resignation, never engaged, at any rate. At the end of his life Bataille seemed to me to be comparable with JEAN-MICHEL BESNIER 25 Adorno, who offers a view of the intellectual preoccupied with resisting the barbarization of the modern world, of the intellectual who makes a point of honour out of refusing to play the game.
