Georges Bataille fragment on Marcelle in the Story of the Eye

Hans Bellmer, Studies for Georges Bataille’s “L’Histoire de l’oeil”, 1946

We were lying in the moonlight by the edge of a forest. We wanted to rest a while during our trip back and we especially wanted to embrace and stare at Marcelle.
"But who is the Cardinal?" Simone asked her.
"The man who locked me in the wardrobe," said Marcelle.
"But why is he a Cardinal?" I cried.
She replied: "Because he is the priest of the guillotine."

- Georges Bataille
