Synopsis: Man of letters, philosopher, and politician, the Marquis de Sade is one of the most controversial figures since the eighteenth century, but recently psychology, theater, cinema, and literary criticism have shed new light on his life and works. Lacoste Castle in the South of France, one of the properties of the Sade family, became the refuge of the Marquis between periods of incarceration. Thanks to the Sade family opening its archives for the first time, historian Jean-Pascal Hesse examines Sade’s story through previously unpublished documents and imagery and walks in the Marquis’ footsteps in his beloved chateau.
About the Author: Originally from the region of Lacoste, historian Jean-Pascal Hesse is the author of a number of books, including Pierre Cardin: 60 Years of Innovation (2010), Maxim's: Mirror of Parisian Life (2011), and The Palais Bulles (2012), all in close collaboration with Pierre Cardin and published by Assouline.

Book Description Assouline. 1 Cloth(s), 2014. hard. Book Condition: New. Derided in his own day as a criminal, a lunatic, and a revolutionary, the Marquis de Sade (1740–1814) has for nearly a century been considered a classic author, championed by such figures as Simone de Beauvoir, André Breton, and Susan Sontag. Sade's life mirrored his fiction, and in this handsomely presented biography, Jean-Pascal Hesse recounts the Frenchman's scandalous publishing career, his imprisonment in the Bastille, and the ongoing revival of interest in such novels as Justine and The 120 Days in Sodom. The more than 100 color images here include photos of original manuscripts, period illustrations, film stills, art inspired by Sade—including works by Salvador Dalí and Man Ray—and photographs of Sade's fabulously elegant chateau, lovingly restored by his modern descendants. 192.

Book Description Der Schriftsteller, Philosoph und Politiker Donatien Alphonse Francois de Sade ist eine der am kontroversesten diskutierten Figuren des 18. Jahrhunderts. In den letzten Jahren haben Psychologie, Theater, Kino, Literatur und die Kritik ein neues Licht auf sein Leben und Schaffen geworfen. Das Schloss Lacoste im Süden von Frankreich, seit alters her eines der Güter der Familie de Sade, war Rückzugsort des Marquis, wenn er nicht gerade eingekerkert war. Dank der Familie de Sade, die erstmals ihre Archive geöffnet hat, konnte der Historiker Jean-Pascal Hesse umfassend Dokumente und Bildquellen untersuchen, wodurch ein klareres Bild des Marquis de Sade und von seiner Zeit im Schloss Lacoste gezeichnet werden kann.
