Bataille's Wound is a fictional presentation of the thought of a central modern French thinker and novelist, showing him as a radical teacher and mentor. George Bataille was a highly controversial writer associated with the Surrealist movement and—in writing often considered by turns pornographic and brilliant—concerned with moral transgression and the authenticity of inner experience. Greene uses quotation, paraphrase, and the recreation of Bataille's celebrated style to further the spirit of that work.
