Pierre Klossowski, Stephen Sartarelli (Translator). Sophie Hawkes (Translator). Diana at Her Bath is one of the oddest pieces of writing I know. It is both and neither a speculative essay on, and a fictional narrative reenactment of, the myth of Actaeon, each brief section shifting along with the obscure variations of the myth as well as following Klossowski's own salacious reading into the details. The effect is like a kaleidoscope vision of the figure of the nude goddess Diana entering her bath and watched by Actaeon from the nearby bushes. The image repeats itself but co Diana at Her Bath is one of the oddest pieces of writing I know.

Pierre Klossowski's last novel, considered by many to be his masterpiece, THE BAPHOMET was awared the Prix des Critique when first publsihed in France in 1965. The preface, included here, is an essay by Michel Foucault on the moment of Acteon's attempt to restrain the huntress. The book stops with a jolt. The book's beautifully translated in parts, and in other parts falls into the same affliction that makes this author's work tendentious and dull.

Pursuing this same idea in his book-length essay, Diana at Her Bath (1956), Klossowski explains how the goddess Diana makes a pact with an intermediary demon so as to appear before Acteon, a human being. Klossowski adds that the demon thereby becomes Acteon’s imagination as well as a mirror-image of Diana. This double effect of the simulacrum is essential. The demon inhabits not only what it reveals (the goddess Diana), but also the spectator (Acteon). Sophie Hawes and Stephen Sartarelli. Diana at Her Bath/The Women of Rome.

These two essays explore sexual tropes, rituals, and mores of Roman antiquity from a thoroughly modern perspective. While attentive to the historical interpretations of the mythical meeting of Diana and Actaeon, and the sexual rituals of ancient Rome, Klossowski's studies bring to the reader the affinity the author has for his subject matter.

Reviews: 3
Two brief masterful monographs from the brilliant Klossowski. Lucid lyrical and accessible , these are a fine introduction to the author of Roberte Ce Soir, His illuminating insights bring Bachohens work on the matriarchate back to us.
Christianity appealed to some people when official religion was cluttered with the kind of feelings that get the full treatment from a French intellectual who knows what Nietzsche meant about some things way beyond the social reality common to people trying to be polite. I have been called confused by the kind of people who won't like this book.
These two texts follow "Roberte Ce Soir & The Evocation of the Edict of Nantes" as intellectual exercises, couched less as fiction and more as essays in "Diana," and as a learned set of brief notes as "Women" The preface that illuminates the Huntress and the Hunter by Michel Foucault on "The Moment of Acteon" is perversely, included in the latter novel "The Baphomet." Well-written and easier to understand than perhaps Klossowski in his many recondite moments, Foucault's essay, however, seems oddly placed. It should have been introducing this other book--the one on Diana! Klossowski does appear to have "inspired" as a classicist many of the ideas that Foucault popularized in his later incomplete series on the "history of sexuality." Perhaps this "borrowing" of so many of his ideas on the moment of surrender, suspension, and seduction-- expanded by his even bolder colleague-- is why in his later years Klossowski left writing behind for painting?

The recounting of the Ovid encounters is eloquently, if for me overwhelmingly, retold in "Diana." A translator of Vergil, Klossowski's ability to plumb the intricacies of Ovid and the Latin poetics reveal a careful scholar as well as an adventurous adept. I cannot say the book succeeds as its own totally engrossing or assuredly mimetic fiction, but in the spirit of Barthes, this compilation works well enough, if rather tediously for my less refined tastes. "Women of Rome" contrasts the erotic staging with the liberated sexuality of the classical tableaux dramatized. Critical notes grace both editions; "The Women" itself is more an excursus or series of appendices than its own full-fledged, extended text.

Klossowski's method often appears to me scattershot, with rare moments of insight couched in overly mannered prose stylized in the fashion of French philosophical speculation, scholastic terminology borrowed from Catholic medieval erudition, and sporadic episodes of brief erotic grappling. I cannot imagine that there are many readers sufficiently educated in the nuances of all three discourses. But Klossowski, ex-Dominican seminarian, student of Bataille, mentored by Gide, and explicator of Sade and Nietzsche, is the one writer who'd search for and reward perhaps this rarified audience.
