  • Il seme cattivo (The bad seed) è un romanzo di William March scritto nel 1954, vincitore del National Book Award per la narrativa nel 1955. Fu l'ultima opera narrativa di March, e, benché pubblicata mentre l'autore era ancora in vita, il suo grande successo critico e commerciale si realizzò in gran parte dopo la sua morte dello scrittore, avvenuta appena un mese dopo la pubblicazione. Il romanzo fu trasposto in uno spettacolo teatrale di successo a Broadway ad opera di Maxwell Anderson e in un film del 1956 diretto da Mervyn LeRoy (nell'edizione italiana Il giglio nero), plurinominato per gli Academy Award.
