Denise Rollin-Le Gentil was the mother of Georges Bataille and one-time companion of Jean Rollin. On 2 October 1939, Georges Bataille meets Denise Rollin-Le Gentil, who is 32 and married with a young son, Jean Rollin. Michel Surya writes, "She was beautiful, a beauty that would be described as melancholy if not taciturn. She spoke little or, for long periods not at all". She joins him at his flat in October; thereafter, Bataille will spend time in her flat at 3 rue de Lille.

In 1945, Maurice Blanchot commences an apparently largely epistolatory affair with Denise Rollin, which will continue until her death in 1978. -- adapted from Spurious [1]
