Beneath the lyrical fabric of Julio Cortázar's works lies a strong mystical quest to uncover the erotic truth amidst the cacophony of socio-religious constrictions. Informed by George Bataille, I explore how Julio Cortázar's Rayuela synthesizes lyrical images of the nude and orgasmic to unshackle human sexuality from religious traditions thereby liberating human desire to an orgasmic symphony of divine communion.
