    In this collection of essays, first published in France in , Georges Bataille explores the value of evil as expressed in literature. 'Literature is not innocent,' Bataille writes in his preface. 'It is guilty and should admit itself so.' It is only by acknowledging its complicity in the knowledge of Evil that literature can communicate fully. Taboo and sacrifice, transgression and language, death and sensuality-Georges Bataille pursues these themes with an original, often startling perspective. He challenges any single discourse on the erotic. The scope of his inquiry ranges from Emily Bronte to Sade, from St. Therese to Claude Levi-Strauss and Dr. Kinsey; and the subjects he covers include prostitution, mythical ecstasy, cruelty.
