Debauched aristocrat Mony Vibescu and a circle of his fellow sybarites blaze a trail of uncontrollable lust, bloody cruelty and depravity across the streets of Europe in Apollinaire's classic erotic novel. Written in 1906 after Apollinaire's researches at the Enfer section of the Bibliotheque Nationale when he encountered the suppressed “pornographic” work of such authors of de Sade, Restif de la Bretonne, and Andrea de Nerciat, The Eleven Thousand Rods is a startling modern response to these "old masters" of erotica, purposefully expanding and detonating the extremes of obscenity as far as the human imagination will allow. This is the full, uncensored edition.
