I read a Spanish translation of the 1947 original with Jean Cocteau's drawings at the end. The story is quite brutal. From the beginning it was clear that the translator must have had a monumental task translating it. It is very interesting to read how men who have sex with men, even those who think of themselves as straight, are full of contradictions because of the morals the society imposes.

I read it after having read "The Secret Historian" and I would have loved to have read Samuel Steward's translation into English.

There is something immemorial about prostitution, men having sex with men, murder, theft, sexual domination, the transitory nature of sailors, the forbidden love because of the constraints that societies impose in its members when it comes to sexual practices. Samuel Steward, as many others, experienced most of these.

I had seen the movie 40 years ago twice in a row at the cinema and recently on dvd. I think this interfered with my reading of the book.

Nevertheless, the book is very lyrical. I suggest to watch Jean Genet's only movie, Un chant d'amour (1950), which in 25 minutes illustrates the kind of world quite well. ( )

I was taken aback by this book, mainly because it was so original. It challenged me, which is always welcome. Still, I found the amount of sex distracting from the other stuff; that's on me. Still, it's a breath of fresh air, even 60 years on. ( )

Romanzo dai toni cupi ambientato nel porto della città di Brest, in Bretagna, tra il porto e le bettole. E' l'unica opera romanzesca di Genet, ma non indenne da implicazioni autobiografiche.
Una storia in cui l'amore omosessuale non lascia spazio ai sentimenti, ma al desiderio crudo per disperato bisogno di identità. Lo stesso tema dell'amore omosessuale è affrontato in "Pompe funebri", dove però è la Storia vero protagonista, il nazismo e la sua violenza, il nazismo come seduzione del male. ( )

Jean Genets "Querelle" ist reich durch ein spezielles Erzählverfahren. Die Frage, ob es sich um den Typus eines autobiographischen Romans handelt, sollte sekundär sein. Primär ist der Roman "Querelle" ein Text, der den/die Leser/Leserin bravourös mit der Dialektik von Identität und Alterität konfrontiert. ( )

The world of Querelle is immoral, erotic, and steeped in secrets. The prose is consistently poetic and sensual, alternately directed by characters lost to immoral behaviors and characters hiding from their own desires. And then, of course, the characters are all surrounded by sex and murder, if not directly engaging in both.

The back of the edition I own notes that the word "deals in a startling way with the Dostoevskian theme of murder as an act of total liberation", and the reference to Dostoevsky may be why I bought this book in the first place (I no longer remember)...but either way, Genet's treatment of murder is too similar to his treatment of sex to be taken as a totally separate conversation: both are incredibly personal acts, and sensual because of the hand-to-hand connection between bodies, and both are revelations of power carrying or denying their own unique brands of shame and guilt. One of the fascinating things about Querelle, though, is the shame that he (and others around him) feel regarding their homosexual acts even as he feels no shame about violence and general immorality (unrelated to sexuality). Some of the horror of the novel comes from the outright violence, but some also comes from the fact that all of this rings true: it isn't hard to imagine how contemporary society could leave someone feeling absolute guilt about their sexuality, and none for their violence, though (in my eyes) it should be something nearly unimaginable.

In the end, Genet's writing is intoxicating, and his descriptions luxurious and believable. At times, his style reminded me of both Dostoevsky and James, but the story of Querelle is something else entirely. Yes, this graphically violent and sexual...but then, maybe there's all the more wonder in that since it is also a beautiful novel that seems, unlikely as it is, to still reveal what is good. ( )
