9780099629603: The 120 Days Of Sodom: And Other Writings (Arena Books)

The 120 Days of Sodom is the Marquis de Sade's masterpiece. A still unsurpassed catalogue of sexual perversions and the first systematic exploration of the psychopathology of sex, it was written during Sade's lengthy imprisonment for sexual deviancy and blasphemy and then lost after the storming of the Bastille during the French Revolution in 1789.

Later rediscovered, the manuscript remained unpublished until 1936 and is now introduced by Simone de Beauvoir's landmark essay, 'Must We Burn Sade?' Unique in its enduring capacity to shock and provoke, The 120 Days of Sodom must stand as one of the most controversial books ever written, and a fine example of the Libertine novel, a genre inspired by eroticism and anti-establishmentarianism, that effectively ended with the French Revolution.

Review:

"Sade was one of the most radical minds in Western history, one that touched, with astonishing fusion of madness and cold rationality, on some of the most central aspects of psychic life... He remains a great, horrifying, but also vastly illuminating figure" ( Newsweek)

Book Description:

The magnum opus of infamous French libertine, aristocrat, erotic author and extremist politician, the Marquis de Sade. The ultimate exploration of sexual deviation including sado-masochism and violent sexual abuse, this is a shocking insight into the psychopathology of sex, seen through the eyes of history's most famous sexual deviant. With an introduction by famous feminist writer and literary critic, Simone de Beauvoir.
