Two bibliographical questions about Georges Bataille:
– is there a comprehensive list anywhere of the writings by/attributed to Bataille which are not included in the Oeuvres complètes? I know of Une liberté souveraine, for example, and letters, and texts from some of the early journals he edited in different places (Le Collège de Sociologie, L’apprenti sorcier, etc.) . But I wonder if there is a comprehensive list somewhere?
– and is there a list of English translations, tallied to the Oeuvres complètes, and including texts in other places? It’s fairly easy for major works, but harder for essays – there are at least two translations of some texts, and others which I don’t think have been translated. Again, just wondering if there is a single place where this has been collated.
I’m aware of the lists on Wikipedia, on popsubculture, and the partial biographies in collections like Visions of Excess, Essential Writings, The Bataille Reader, The Absence of Myth: Writings on Surrealism, and so on. There are partial bibliographies in some of the secondary books I have on Bataille, but nothing that seems comprehensive. Anyone help with this?
Update 9 April 2020: I’ve made a start with what I had in mind here.
