Les Crimes de l'amour, Nouvelles héroïques et tragiques (Eng: The Crimes of Love: Heroic and tragic Tales) is a collection of short stories by Sade first published in 1799. In its original publication, each story was prefaced by a motto from Edward Young's Night Thoughts. The collection also features the notable essay, Reflections on the Novel, which features Sade's theories on the 'modern novel'.

Les Crimes de l'amour is also the title of a French film edited from The Crimson Curtain, a short story by Jules Amédée Barbey d'Aurevilly.
