Son of a bitch, faggot, thief, activist, poet, liar, saint, military man, convict, genius, martyr, hustler, traitor. What a bunch of epithets for a single man! It is difficult to imagine a greater apoteosis for a thief than to be crucified next to Our Lord.
Specially in the case of Jean Genet who was a thief because he was impelled to it rather than for what the value of what he took.
Even more so if we attend to his sublimation of evil conceived as a process of sanctification. More if we pay attention to the fact that he would not be only one there, as there would be another naked and beautiful thief like him. What a context for the birth of love! And if it is in the crucifixion of Antonello of Messina then unbeatable.
