“One of the most original and unsettling of those thinkers who, in the wake of Sade and Nietzsche, have confronted the possibility of thought in a world that has lost its myth of transcendence.”
—Peter Brooks, New York Times Book Review

“Bataille has survived the death of God.”
—Jean-Paul Sartre

“Richardson’s readable and accurate translations are carefully annotated, making this a useful collection for English readers.”
Library Journal

“The book is never less than fascinating and reveals Bataille as a wit as well as a thinker.”
Times Higher Education Supplement
