But Beyond this paradox stands the work itself. The work of a man in quest for an angel: a monstrous angel, luminous and two sided.Here, the notion of Good and Evil must be rethought.

In Genet’s ritual world, there is a sacrificial crisis in which angels must be transcended through what Genet calls the crack, the fissure of humanity, of pure and rigorous love. Cocteau was right: Genet is a moralist.A key to Genet’s imaginary world will be found in his writing on Art.And what if the Angel, what if paradise is in each of us?Genet finds in every man the same value, the same meaning.The purpose of this book is to uncover Genet’s unique vision of Humanity.“This is a brilliant and penetrating analysis of Jean Genet’s writing.
