Ashley Tauchert's new book questions the widespread use of Transgression as a term of critical analysis and approval. Tauchert takes the concept back to its origins in the compelling thought experiments of Georges Bataille and traces its transformation into critical dogma in the work of Michel Foucault. Offering neither a manifesto nor a template, Against Transgression tracks the author's rejection of Transgression as a legitimate critical methodology following her mother's Ashley Tauchert's new book questions the widespread use of Transgression as a term of critical analysis and approval. Tauchert takes the concept back to its origins in the compelling thought experiments of Georges Bataille and traces its transformation into critical dogma in the work of Michel Foucault. Offering neither a manifesto nor a template, Against Transgression tracks the author's rejection of Transgression as a legitimate critical methodology following her mother's death and her own maternal transfiguration. In her quest for the possibility of critical thought beyond the now-hegemonic transgressive turn, Tauchert finds herself blowing the dust off a surprisingly radical mode of English literary criticism in C.S.Lewis's speculative narrative work. Bataille and Lewis make for very odd critical bedfellows indeed, as Tauchert correlates the theoretical pornography of the iconic text of Transgression (Madame Edwarda) with the extraordinarily popular conservatism of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe in her search for a credible response to 'Transgression'.

Both a controversial account of the transgressive turn in critical thought characteristic of the moral turmoil of the Twentieth Century, and a provocative study of maternal transfiguration in the author's own turn from Transgression, "Against Transgression" poses an urgent question for the current generation of literary critics. Studies the origins of the contemporary proliferation of 'Transgression' in the compelling thought experiments of Georges Bataille, and follows its inauguration as a mode of legitimate critical practice via Michel Foucault. Tracks the author's rejection of Transgression as a legitimate critical methodology following her mother's death and her own maternal transfiguration. Shows how the po-faced claims of critical methodology can be exploded by genuinely personal reflection. Considers the place of grief in the transformation of thought. Argues against the model of the 'death of god' that underpins the transgressive turn in critical thought, and for a more courageous account of the inevitable return of numinous desires. Considers the moral responsibility of the critical writer. Traces the transfiguration of the author from transgressive daughter to maternal agent.
