I actually read this historically notorious work years ago and, as I've done in many cases, recently decided to back up the paper original with a digital copy. The Marquis De Sade did NOT write pretty things. He is infamous for his deviant explicit sexual content/violence.

I actually read this historically notorious work years ago and, as I've done in many cases, recently decided to back up the paper original with a digital copy. As the pop sensation '50 Shades of Grey' has little (to nothing) to do with what practitioners would call "real" BDSM, '120 Days of Sodom' is more evocative of the dungeons of the Spanish Inquisition than of the safe, sane and consensual practices engaged in by those in that understandably quiet community.

The Duc de Blangis and his brother the Bishop of X , each of whom had thuswise amassed immense fortunes, are in themselves solid proof that, like the others, the nobility neglected no opportunities to take this road to wealth.

Compiled and translated by. Austryn wainhouse & richard seaver. This is the name Restif de la Bretonne invented to identify The 120 Days of Sodom, whose real title he did not know, but of whose composition he had learned. To be known, and to be unknown; to divulge, and to conceal.

A new English translation of the Marquis de Sade's erotic horror classic was published this month, and it's as gut-wrenching as you'd expect. And it is precisely this issue which makes The 120 Days of Sodom a special book. To present evil in a meticulous and straightforward manner is one thing, but to rationalize and portray it as the only ‘valuable’ way of life, and so in the most chilling debonair prose, is another matter.
