L'Abbé C by Georges Bataille

L'Abbé C (1950) was Georges Bataille's first published novella. It is a work of dark eroticism, centred on the relationship between two twentieth century brothers in a small French village, one of whom is a Catholic parish priest, while the other is a libertine. It explores issues of split subjectivity and existentialist bad faith.
