In his Second Surrealist Manifesto of 1929 André Breton derided Georges Bataille as "(professing) to wish only to consider in the world that which is vilest, most discouraging, and most corrupted."

"M. Bataille fait profession de ne vouloir considérer au monde que ce qu’il y a de plus vil, de plus décourageant et de plus corrompu".
