Notify me. Description In Guillaume Apollinaire, one of the most original and influential poets of the twentieth century, turned his hand to the novel. He produced two books for the clandestine market. The finer of these was Les Onze Mille Verges. One of the most masterful and hilarious erotic novels of all time, it was once owlishly pronounced by Picasso to be Apollinaire's masterpiece. For nearly seventy years this novel remained a legend.
In the definitive version was published in France, on which edition The Times Literary Supplement commented: 'The rutting is non-stop. Who else would have turned a twosome into a foursome by the arrival of two randy burglars?
Even when turning his hand to a dirty novel, Apollinaire was very much Apollinaire. Product details Format Paperback pages Dimensions x Other books in this series. Kappa Ryunosuke Akutagawa.

Les Onze Mille Verges
Les Onze Mille Verges ou les Amours d'un hospodar is a pornographic novel by French author Guillaume Apollinaire , published in over his initials "G. The title contains a play on the Catholic veneration of the "Eleven thousand Virgins" French: les onze mille vierges , the martyred companions of Saint Ursula , replacing the word vierge virgin with verge rod due to a slip of the tongue by the protagonist and as an omen of his fate. The use of the word verge may also be considered as a pun for it is used as a vulgarism for the male member. The writing is alert, fresh and concrete, humour is always present, and the entire novel exudes an "infernal joy", [ attribution needed ] which finds its apotheosis in the final scene. In a case lodged before the European Court of Human Rights by a Turkish publisher of the novel, for his conviction under the Turkish Criminal Code "for publishing obscene or immoral material liable to arouse and exploit sexual desire among the population", followed by the seizure and destruction of all the copies of the book and the fine for the publisher, the Court found that there has been a violation of the Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights , protecting the freedom of expression. The Court stated that the work belonged to the "European literary heritage". In a different case judge Bonello, in his concurring opinion, after citing the description of the book from Wikipedia, described the work as a "smear of transcendental smut".
