Gothic Tales of the Marquis de Sade by Marquis de Sade

Book Description

The notorious author of pornographic novels, a sexual pervert who spent much of his life in prison and whose name was unmentionable in civilized circles. Only in recent times has the Marquis come to be seen as misunderstood; essentially a moralist, his exploration of the so-called dark side of the human psyche remains as relevant to our society as it was to his own. Gothic Tales will provide an excellent introduction to Sade's fiction; these accessible stories range from the dramatic novella Eugenie de Franval, in which a father's criminal passion for his daughter leads to intrigue, abduction and murder, to comic tales such as The Husband Who Plays Priest, concerning a lecherous monk who finds an ingenious way to combine clerical duties with secular pleasures. Sade's gift as a humorist are much in evidence, as is his particular delight in unusual marital situations - which invariably lead to the most diverting conclusions...

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?

Author Biography - Marquis de Sade

The Marquis de Sade was born in Paris in 1740 and served as a cavalry officer in the Seven Years War. His debauched life led to long periods of imprisonment, during which much of his work was written. The revolution freed him and he became a zealous revolutionary; however the publication of such works as Justine and La Philosophie dans la boudoir resulted in his renewed imprisonment and in 1803 he was declared insane and committed to the asylum at Charenton, where he died in 1814.
