Reviled and fetishized, the work of Georges Bataille (1897–1962) has been mostoften reduced to his outrageous, erotic, and libertine fiction and essays. But increasingly, readersare finding his insights into politics, economics, sexuality, and performance revealing and timely.Focusing on Bataille’s most extensive work, The Accursed Share, Shannon Winnubst and thecontributors to this volume present contemporary interpretations that read Bataille in a new light.These essays situate Bataille in French and European intellectual traditions, bring forward keyconcepts for understanding the challenges posed by his important work, and draw out his philosophy.Established voices and younger scholars cover a range of topics and themes, including ethics,politics, economy, psychology, and performance so readers can think with and through Bataille. Whilefocusing attention on Bataille and his provocative work, this book offers a sympathetic, yetcritical, reappraisal and rehabilitation.

Contributors are Alison Leigh Brown,Andrew Cutrofello, Zeynep Direk, Jesse Goldhammer, Dorothy Holland, Pierre Lamarche, Richard A. Lee,Jr., Alphonso Lingis, Ladelle McWhorter, Lucio A. Privitello, Allan Stoekl, Amy Wendling, andShannon Winnubst.
