When Le Château de Cène first appeared in France in 1969, under the sonorous pseudonym of Urbain d’’Orlhac, it created a sensation. Immediately recognised as being among the finest works of French literary eroticism (along with, say, Bataille’s Story of the Eye, or Reage’s Story of O), its author was soon identified: the poet and essayist Bernard Noël, born in 1930. The author recounts an intense initiatory sexual quest which occurs on a mysterious remote island.
