Crimes of Love by Marquis de Sade

Book Description

Sade is best known for his sensational books Justine, Juliette and Les Cent Vert (The One Hundred Days of Sodom), yet in his lifetime these and other major works appeared in anonymous or clandestine editions or remain unpublished. It was while he was detained in prison and incarcerated in the asylum at Charenton that he decided to follow his 'philosophical' novel Aline et Valcour with writings more accessible to the general public. And he wanted to prove that he was not a mere pornographer but a moralist, like Voltaire and other contemporaries. In The Crimes of Love Sade contends that love can lead to crime and thence to punishment. Uni-like the villains of his major novels, the men and women described in these pages all come to a sticky end. Sade was fascinated by incest but claimed that he did 'not want to make vice liked.' The stories also illustrate his love of history and his frustrated passion for drama, while 'Rodrigo or the Enchanted Tower' is an intriguing example of this complex writer's flight into fantasy - his only means of escape from detention.

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?
