By J. R. Salamanca
LILITH is a powerfully drawn portrait of innocence corrupted by means of evil-an evil so terrific, so appealing, so imaginatively conceived that even its violence and amorality have a phenomenal attractiveness in their personal. this can be the evil of Lilith, a wildly deranged younger lady who creates for herself an odd paradise of fable, poetry, and fervour which she inhabits in place of the genuine international. Her international has its personal language, its personal philosophy, its personal song and artwork, all exquisitely built and richly sensual of their layout. And it has its personal faith, a faith which calls for an insidious and dreadful kind of human sacrifice.
First released in 1961, LILITH immediately turned a vintage of yank literature, with over 1000000 copies in print and a 1964 movie edition of an analogous identify starring Warren Beatty and Jean Seberg.
