The Castle of Communion [ePub]

by Bernard Noël

Fiction. The novel recounts an intense initiatory sexual quest which occurs on a mysterious remote island. Chosen as the moon's lover the hero undertakes a Dantaesque journey through successive layers of pain and ecstasy. The book's climax is a beatific rite of sexual purification in the Castle of Communion, which is described in a poetic language at once incantatory, crude and almost mystical. The intensity of the book matches its mode of composition: dictated into a tape recorder and finished in only three weeks. The author has described it as a partial response to the atrocities committed by the French authorities in Algeria.
