Languages of publication
Eros and Tanatos in the prose of Miodrag Bulatovic. The focus of this article is on an exploration of the various forms of degenerate eroticism present in the prose of Miodrag Bulatovic. Attention is drawn to the festive and orgiastic character of war (Hero on the Donkey, The War was Better), licentious erotica in the libertine spirit (Gullo Gullo), and also the phenomenon of hyperactive sexuality with a phobic substrata (People with Four Fingers). The theory of transgressive eroticism, present in the works of Georges Bataille, Pascal Quinard and Elisabeth Roudinesco, is also applied. Concepts from the field of humanistic psychiatry, the American school of neopsychoanalysis, Roger Caillois’ conclusions on the orgiastic nature of armed conflict, elements of the Marquis de Sade’s philosophy, as well as definitions of sexual deviations utilized in sexology and sexual psychology jointly form the methodological basis of the presentation.
