Mar 26, Florencia rated it liked it Recommends it for: People who aren't afraid of reading about killings, torture and black magic at night. Recommended to Florencia by: Me. I did this to myself Shelves: pizarnikism , argentine , argentine-books-reviewed , history-and-fiction-combo.
She is another proof that the absolute freedom of the human being is something horrible. A sadistic woman obsessed with beauty. A vulnerable countess who became a victim of some conspiracy. Which one were you, Elizabeth? Probably both. Weird book. I found a beautiful prose which describes the most atrocious acts a person is capable of doing. I was an ice cube made of fear during the whole time I was reading this thing.
I'm an impressionable person. I couldn't keep reading these few pages at nig She is another proof that the absolute freedom of the human being is something horrible. I couldn't keep reading these few pages at night without feeling like this benevolent Countess was about to enter my room wearing a frightening white dress and holding a rope.
No, I don't know how to feel about this book. View all 5 comments. It also contains horrifying illustrations of some of the methods of torture used.
This is a very short book, but it gives a good introduction to the chilling motives of the countess, and it sparked my interest in this story and time period. Oct 13, Fabiola rated it liked it. Feb 09, Nathalia Borghi rated it really liked it. It was a bit hard finding the 'sense' of this book I mean, I didn't know if it was a children's book, a historical book, a romance, a biography. But anyway, it was a nice little history of Contess Bathory, the Bloody Contess.
Quite scary, to be honest, even more so when you remember all of this was probably real. The illustrations help set the tone. Beautifully done but completely macabre. The one thing I didn't like at all was the postface, it had a really bad analysis of current culture and It was a bit hard finding the 'sense' of this book The one thing I didn't like at all was the postface, it had a really bad analysis of current culture and is one of the worst pieces of comparative through historical periods I've ever seen.
Maybe this is just in the Brazilian edition, but it was the biggest piece of terror throughout the whole book, either way.
May 08, Julian Onfire rated it liked it. Making something beautiful from unpleasantness is an art and is something that Pizarnik does very well, this time presents a great personal reinterpretation of "The Blood Countess" of Valentina Penrose condensed into short chapters highly shocking and attractive at the same time, headings by characteristic authors clearly influential in the life of Alejandra: Artaud, Rimbaud, Daumal, etc.
Making us think in the person we see every day in the mirror and the darkness of our mind. With beautiful illustrations by Santiago Caruso and Alejandra Pizarnik prose. Oct 27, Alaska rated it it was amazing.
And the drawings are very accurated. This book! I love it! If you like horror and vampires stories, and must important, if you are interested in Elizabeth Bathory I don't know if there is an english translation, I hope it I am not going to talk about Bathory because I won't never end, so I will focus on this beautiful book by Alejandra Pizarnik. It tells the story of Bathory in a poetical way, with all the wonderful Pizarnik's write style. It talks about her macabre torture manners, her need of b This book!
It talks about her macabre torture manners, her need of blood and how she killed thousands of virgins. Sounds great ah? It is in fact a masterpiece from Alejandra. Not less important are the incredible amazing illustrations that it have I think that this book is wonderful because Alejandra not only tell us the story, she navigate through it and give us her opinions about death, sexuality and madness.

Born in Buenos Aires to Russian parents who had fled Europe and the Nazi Holocaust, Alejandra Pizarnik was destined for literary greatness as well as an early death.
She died from an ostensibly self-administered overdose of barbiturates on 25 September A few words scribbled on a slate that same month, reiterating her desire to go nowhere "but to the bottom," sum up her lifelong aspiration as Born in Buenos Aires to Russian parents who had fled Europe and the Nazi Holocaust, Alejandra Pizarnik was destined for literary greatness as well as an early death.
A few words scribbled on a slate that same month, reiterating her desire to go nowhere "but to the bottom," sum up her lifelong aspiration as a human being and as a writer. The compulsion to head for the "bottom" or "abyss" points to her desire to surrender to nothingness in an ultimate experience of ecstasy and poetic fulfillment in which life and art would be fused, albeit at her own risk.
