I want to start reading Bataille, and I'm wondering if y'all have any suggestions as to articles/books/etc that I should look into to help understand the arguments (links would be much appreciated).  Thanks!

Saints of the Impossible: Bataille, Weil, and the Politics of the Sacred by Alexander Irwin

 

and

 

The non-esoteric portions of The Thirst for Annihilation: Georges Bataille and Virulent Nihilism by Nick Land

 

straight up Bataille is confusing if you're not well-read in traditional philosophical texts

Do you know where I can find a PDF of Land's book?

I uploaded it to mediafire myself but got lucky awhile ago and found some sketchy link on a twitter account to get the PDF.

Also Bataille's "On Nietzsche" isn't too difficult and gives a lot of insight into Bataille's mindset.

"Foolish baby quokka. If the only way to vote for Baudrillard is to vote against him, then voting against him would be voting for him which means you have to vote against the team that is against Baudrillard to not vote for him, and therefore, vote against Baudrillard."
