Abstract

This article is a theorization of the decline of the erotic in literature. Late modernist works by Klossowski and Réage are the vanguard of this decline, as they signal the post-modern, in which categories collapse. Criss-crossed by interplays of meaning and desire, the post-modern body both inside and outside literature is glimpsed in these works in statu nascendi.
