You are on page 1of 11 Search inside document A Revolutionary Proposal: Invisible Insurrection of a Million Minds Alexander Trocchi Published as "Technique du coupe du monde," Internationale Situationniste 8 January And if there is still one hellish, truly accursed thing in our time, it is our artistic dallying with forms, instead of being like victims burnt at the stake, signalling through the flames. As soon as it is defined, it has provoked the measures for its confinement. The prudent man will avoid his definition which is in effect his death-sentence. Besides, it is a limit. We are concerned not with the coup d'etat [seizure of the state] of Trotsky and Lenin, but with the coup du monde [seizure of the world], a transition of necessity more complex, more diffuse than the other, and so more gradual, less spectacular. Our methods will vary with the empirical facts pertaining here and now, there and then. Political revolt is and must be ineffectual precisely because it must come to grips at the prevailing level of political process.
The water is dung-coloured and slides away smoothly, horizontally before the eye. Jul 01, Lance Grabmiller rated it it was amazing.

The Italian was committing suicide. The writer was Alexander Trocfhi. Why Books Matter in a Distracted Time.
He casts himself as beyond society, above laws and morals and wars and guilt. What is incredible about the book is its unrelenting bleakness, and the sheer poetic quality of Trocchi's writing. Heroin for Trocchi, as Remainder author Tom McCarthy noted in a lecture on Cain's Book recently , "is a moveable void: taking that void around the city with him, in him, he ensures that he inhabits negative space constantly. This is his poetic project and it's also the way his whole perception system works at its most basic level the two are the same.
As the 60s gave way to the 70s, Trocchi's addiction to heroin took its toll and his talent lay pretty much squandered. The stories of his wild and tragic life are infamous and extensively documented in many of the leading "swinging 60s" biographies Marianne Faithfull 's account of doing drugs with Trocchi is one of the best.
Despite his addictions, and his sad death at the age of 59, Trocchi left us some of the bleakest, most beautiful writing to come out of the 60s. I was now ready to act at every moment in accordance with a new attitude. She had loved Inez. I had thought about that night after night as I waited to slay him. She had loved me in a different way.
My act of slapping her across the face had the effect of annihilating the past, of reversing the relation between us.
In the future, she would obey. Her expression had changed. The fear was still there, but it had undergone a subtle modulation:it was no longer stark panic, and all hatred had gone from her eyes. It was as though she were waiting for me to act again. Slowly, holding her gaze, I bared myself, and as I did so, I felt the sluice of urgent blood move to harden my member. I looked I climbed onto the bed beside her. Kneeling there, slowly, an inch at a time, I brought it toward her face.
She stared at it, her whole attention riveted upon it, and then suddenly, when it was no more than six inches from her, she let out a small whimper, enclosed it like a valuable object in both hands, and took it into her mouth.
As she did, her liquid eyes closed, and I felt the warmth of complete envelopment. Her full lips pressed to my hard flesh, sliding up and down it, her tongue twisting madly around the swollen head. She held onto the base of my sex with her hands, squeezing hard.
I was on the verge of annihilation. Disappointed by Anna, Folsrom develops an infatuation with his housekeeper Kirstin. Stumbling across her engrossed in sado-masochist acts with two other maids, he watches them through a keyhole: Each girl picked up a skeleton. The fantasy began. I was conscious at once of the fact that the bones had been wired together, and that, fixed firmly to each skeleton, was a rubber penis. Carefully, in a practiced way, each girl slipped it into her, draped the arms of a skeleton over her back and shoulders, and lay down on the filthy straw.
To see a skeleton pricking a young girl, the bones bouncing like a beaded parrot-cage on her soft belly, is a strange sight. It did not last long. I had the impression that Kirstin was impatient for her little insects to become stuck in her web. She said something and the girls rose immediately, allowing the skeletons to tumble onto the floor.
They began to fly again, or rather, to make the motions of flying. Mona was more graceful than Milly.
Her movements were less abrupt and the flesh of her buttocks was a startling white against her red hair. The vision of Anna paled before the image of Kirstin. The one wished nothing more than to be a victim; the other would dare to victimize.
