The one of nature is not as great as the poet who is in turn not as great as the great actor, the most exaggerated of all. The latter climbs onto the shoulders of the poet, a large wicker mannequin that houses its soul, shaking this figure fearfully, even to the extent that the poet no longer recognizes himself.

Then again, I sometimes squeeze the heads of their children with ligatures and other appliances, rend

Book chapter

Take La CicciolinaLa Cicciolina. Is there any more wonderful embodiment of sex, of the pornographic innocence of sex? She has been contrasted with MadonnaMadonna, the virgin product of aerobics and a glacial aesthetic, devoid of all charm and sensuality, a muscled android, ripe for precisely that reason for conversion into a computer-generated idol on account of the strange deterrence she generates. But, if we think about it, is not La Cicciolina also a transexual? Her long, platinum-blonde hair,

Book chapter + STUDIO
