From the Back Cover For nearly seventy years this novel remained a legend before being published in In Guillaum Synopsis Les Onze Mille Verges tells the story of a Romanian prince who comes to Paris in search of fame, excitement, and sexual adventures. In Guillaume Apollinaire, one of the most original and influential poets of the twentieth century turned his hand to the novel. Strapped for cash, he produced two books for the clandestine market, the finer one of these was Les Onze Mille Verges.

I never read Sade, but guess this story might have made blush even the celebrated marquis. If I were a censor, I would reserve this book for people over 61 and only if accompanied by their grandparents. View 1 comment. Mar 24, Tricia Riffic rated it it was amazing.
Les Onze Milles Verges is what happen when a great poet writes smut. A worldwide quest of lust in the early 20th century, described in terms that would shock even the most hardcore contemporary Reddit user. Not the best read, but a classic nonetheless. Feb 17, Tav rated it it was ok. Straight-up turn of the century porn Meandering european sexcapades Actually really disgusting at times Dont' know what to think about this one This is the book comply with - full of sexual perversion.
There were funny moments in it as well as disgusting. If you want to read an unusual book and do not have retching this is for you. How to rate this bonkers explicit and surreal scatological romp?
I actually think it's unrateable Filled to bursting as was every orifice going! Everyone and everything is fucked and sucked, sodomised, fetishised and worse. Every possible bodily fluid and substance is shot, smeared and swallowed. Depraved, delinquent and demented. This can only be described as a sadistic and extremely challenging erotic pornographic fiction written in by the French surrealist author Apollinaire who died young at 38 in the flue epidemic of Picasso apparently really liked this book.
The book does include a detailed introduction and textual notes at the back. The basic story follows Mony Vibescu This can only be described as a sadistic and extremely challenging erotic pornographic fiction written in by the French surrealist author Apollinaire who died young at 38 in the flue epidemic of The basic story follows Mony Vibescu, a Romanian captain, indulging in and witnessing the sex act in all its forms, as he ends up at the Russian-Japanese war of There are the usual pairings for the most part, group, scat, sodomy, rape and animal sex.
The most extreme being murder and beheading after the sex act which included children, incest and yes, in deed a baby. And though it may be worth a read for its boundary pushing, you have been warned. Elfduizend roeden, of De liefdes van een hospodar is well-written, no doubt about that, and even though I know the story is a parody on a, at the time, very popular genre, only one word springs to mind when I think about this book: Yuk :- Just too much for me, I guess.
This was the first book I read in And boy, what a doozy of a book it is. Reading surrealist literature is like playing Russian Roulette. Spoiler alert- this one is not a dud! There is something admittedly admirable about Apollinaire's craftsmanship in this book.
It is obviously well written. But, it isn't a fun read. It's not quite as gross as Georges Bataille's Story of The Eye; but, only because Apollinaire has a better developed sense of humor. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone This was the first book I read in I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone that I wouldn't want to scar.

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".
