La littérature et le mal (1957) is a book by Georges Bataille.

"Literature is not innocent," Bataille declares in the preface to this collection of literary profiles. "It is guilty and should admit itself so." The word, the flesh, and the devil are explored by Bataille in the work of eight outstanding authors: Emily Bronte, Charles Baudelaire, William Blake, Jules Michelet, Franz Kafka, Marcel Proust, Jean Genet and Marquis de Sade.
