The Dead Man (French: Le Mort) is a story by Georges Bataille published posthumously. It was adapted for a short film as The Deadman (1987).



The book, about 60 pages is a juxtaposition of sparse text and on the bottom of the page a sort of summary of each page. Thus the "summary" of the first page reads: "Marie Reste Seule Avec Le Mort."


Edouard dies, Marie is in the room with him. Marie leaves the room and goes to an inn. There she initiates debaucheries with Pierrot.
