Complete Marquis De Sade by Marquis de Sade

Book Description

A rare two-volume translation of de Sade's titillating, shocking and classic writings "The Complete Marquis de Sade" is now released by Holloway House Publishing in a single trade edition-sized volume to comemmorate the first printing's 40th anniversary. Adorned with gripping artwork by Man Ray and translated by renowned scholar Paul J. Gillette, this dramatic collection includes the classics, "Justine", "Juliette", "120 Days of Sodom" and "Philosophy in the Bedroom" among many others. No other edition captures so purely the drama of de Sade's infamous forays into human sexuality, including practises such as voyeurism, fetishism, necrophilia, bestiality and sadism. Villified by critics in the 1800s, de Sade's honest depictions of his adventures have been enjoyed by many in the 20 and 21st centuries. Readers will also discover a mind as free as de Sade's sexuality was uninhibited, for he discusses natural evolution 25 years before Darwin's birth; postulates the existence of the unconscious mind a century before Sigmund Freud; and anthropologically probes social mores decades before Margaret Mead.

Books By Author Marquis de Sade

Justine, or the Misfortunes of Virtue by Marquis de Sade Justine, or the Misfortunes of Virtue, Paperback (November 2012)

Justine's attachment to virtue attracts nothing but misfortune, and she is subjected to an unending catalogue of sexual abuse. Sade's best-known novel, it overturns all religious, moral, and political norms, and still has the power to shock. This new translation of the 1791version is the first for over 40 years, and the first critical edition.

Mystified Magistrate by Marquis de Sade Mystified Magistrate, Paperback (June 2012)

Sade was a man obsessed, like many great writers, and his obsessions are still present here: his hatred of all things pretentious, his loathing of a corrupt judicial system, his damning of hypocrisy and false piety. This volume reveals a lighter, comic side of Sade.

Virtue by Marquis de Sade Virtue, Paperback (April 2011)

Herman and Ernestine, two lovers, find themselves confronted with a pair of libertines who will stop at nothing to assuage their desires. Count Oxtiern and his accomplice Madame Scholtz will shrink from nothing, no lie, no treachery is beneath them in their quest for sexual fulfilment. But does crime really never pay? Or can virtue vanquish vice?
