Description - The Complete Marquis De Sade by Marquis de Sade

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.
