Transgressive Literature/Media

Recommend me anything that approaches the works of Sade, Bataille, Genet or Desclos. You can deviate from the realm of literature of you wish to do so, I want anything, really.

    Just watched some fricked up anime man, I haven't myself but there's plenty there. Plus the usual movies across the world. Best video game I've ever played that's extremely transgressive is Pathologic 1 but I haven't played the sequel yet
    I'm a big fan of bataille, but why the interest in finding these works? I'm not against transgression but watching/reading/playing something just because it's taboo is really boring to me.

        Horror was included as little as possible, since it already has its own chart.

      >What if instead of a bad protagonist that thinks they're good... They know they're bad! They know they're a stinker!?
      >And it has not only murder.... But pedophilia!
      >"Yes, this is the most disturbing™ book ever made. No one's ever thought something this deranged and fricked up before!"
      Props to bataille for at least going more out there

        Okay I know I just posted this mocking the list and "taboo books", but I just read the summary of "blood and guts in highschool" and what the actual frick? This sounds like the weirdest shit I've ever read, like it's aggressively trying to frick with you with [X] happens and then [TTT] happens! I'm no anti intellectual, I fricking love "nostalgia" (tarkovsky) but this genuinely seems like some pseudo intellectual bullshit that's trying to seem smart

      Try Black Souls 1+2 and Subarashiki Hibi. Never managed to finish the 2nd one.

      >A Season in Hell
      Wasn't particularly disturbing to me. Mostly surreal with some great imagery, but not disturbing. I read it in translation though, so maybe that's why. But even then I was more affected by the likes of Dante, Ovid and Juan Rulfo, all of whom I also read in translation.
      >Blindness
      Gotta reread that, it's been like 20 years since I first read it and I don't remember shit.
      >Blood Meridian
      Beautiful and disturbing. Not as brilliant of a writer as Melville, but great nonetheless. Gotta try Suttree.
      >Borowski
      Read it like 15 years ago, I remember it being pretty disturbing.

      Definitely interested in reading:
      >American Psycho
      >Maldoror
      >Naked Lunch
      >Kosinski
      >Bataille
      >Bloy
      >Donoso
      >Gass (really liked his essays)
      WhIch other writers have actual literary value on top of being disturbing? How's Kristof?

      What compels people to read this shit? I genuinely don't get it.

        Yeah, Gass and Celine? What a bunch of lowbrow crud.

        The point, when there is one, is probably to ask yourself uncomfortable questions that you may not otherwise face except in fiction.

        Try Black Souls 1+2 and Subarashiki Hibi. Never managed to finish the 2nd one.

        Big rec for Gass, and Celine considering you didn't list him. I read Frisk recently and liked it but it was more shocking than deep, at least after a single pass (probably worthwhile if you're fascinated with sexuality and violence, esp. in gays).

          Where should I start with Gass?

            He has short stories, but I haven't read them; I see them recommended on here, like the Pederson Kid for example, but if it's representative of his prose and narrative style from his novels I dunno for sure (but probably). Start there anyway. I read Omensetter's Luck then the Tunnel and enjoyed both very much, but they're big and heavy and if you're unsure about his style then I'd start smaller. All three mentioned here are candidates for "dark and disturbing," though lumping them in with e.g. Frisk and In the Miso Soup is misleading.

    De Sade? Bataille? lol thats all just fake weird for normals who can't stomach real transgression. Just go watch some extreme subgenres of hentai and don't be an ass. Go play Saya no Uta or go read fanatic Evangelical lit or be a flat earther. Nothing more transgressive in 2024 than being a schizo conspiracy theorist who thinks the world is 2D.

    Les Decombres (1942) by Rebatet, just 100% serious and sincere orgasmic jubilation at seeing everything stomped by nazis and salivating at the prospect of massacre. Completely unhinged and psychotic. Might not hit the same for those not familiar with France because a lot is references to French clergy, israelites, or the Action Francaise but I don't think that's a big stop.
    A good contender for the highest literary form of "frick everything and everyone" (but israelites first in line) put to paper, with a big bonus from being tied to the contemporary events instead of cheap and easy paper or abstract misanthropy.
    Obviously not translated in English.
