Summary
Catherine Cusset's No Tomorrow traces the moral meaning of pleasure in several libertine works of the eighteenth century - Watteau's Pelerinage a l'ile de Cythere, Prevost's Manon Lescaut, Crebillon's Les Egarements du coeur et de l'esprit, the anonymous pornographic novel Therese philosophe, Diderot's La Religieuse, and Vivant Denon's short story "Point de lendemain." Cusset's analysis suggests that libertine novels offered the eighteenth century a more complex picture of moral being and ultimately contributed a lesson of tolerance to the Enlightenment
