Ispirato alla moda delle storie naturali settecentesche, Le 120 giornate di Sodoma ' terminato da Sade nel 1785 nel carcere della Bastiglia ' -è una vera e propria tassonomia delle passioni umane o, diremmo oggi, delle perversioni. In un crescendo ossessivo, con un linguaggio che si fa annotazione e a volte frammento, il romanzo segue le vicende di quattro "libertini" e la loro paradossale sperimentazione di "sregolatezze" rigidamente regolate, di una lussuria senza freno ma non senza ordine. È un viaggio nell'intimo del desiderio umano, in territori inconfessati e segreti, oltre le ipocrisie e le reticenze dell'educazione. Con quest'opera grandiosa e terrificante, dettata da una disperazione e da un coraggio straordinari, Sade ha segnato una tappa decisiva nel processo di conoscenza di sé dell'uomo occidentale.

Zelmire is an exceptionally beautiful name. It’s a shame I’d never be able to bestow it on my daughter for fear of her asking someday where I got the idea...

Οι διαφορές ανάμεσά τους, υπέρμετρες σ’ όλες τις άλλες τους μανίες, σ’ όλες τις άλλες τους πράξεις, μεγαλώνουν ακόμη πιο πολύ. Όποιος μπορέσει να προσδιορίσει και να καταγράψει λεπτομερώς Leggi tutto

Scholars have tried to read all kinds of things into de Sade's cornerstone of transgressive literature: Is it a book about totalitarianism, as Pasolini's movie version implies? Is it trying to shed light on humanity's dark side, as Simone de Beauvoir suggests? Are we dealing with a satirical take on Leggi tutto

(Original Review, 2008) Philosophy in the Bedroom: "The 120 Days of Sodom" by Marquis De Sade Personally,I think the way to understand De Sade is as a global pioneer in the art of trolling.

WARNING: This review talks about some very gruesome things but if you’re considering reading this book, you’d best be ready for gore. First- can we talk about the fact that in the edition I read (Wilder Publications 2008), there’s an amazing offense warning on it? Why is it amazing, you ask? Thanks Leggi tutto
I am not a prude. I am not the type of person who will hesitate from delving into works others might find dark. One of my favorite novels is the Exorcist, commonly regarded as one of the most terrifying books ever written. I have pictures on the push-pin board in front of me while I write this conta Leggi tutto
One of the things that I like most about good literature is its ability to break the confines of conventionalism. Literature, in that sense, is tantamount to being a libertine. This novel takes the reader to the darkest of the darkest corners of possible, degrading, violent, scatological behaviour.
One cannot separate The 120 Days of Sodom from the biography of its author, the deranged aristocrat the Marquis de Sade, and the fascinating story of its authorship: hastily scrawled in tiny print onto a 12-metre scroll of paper over the course of 37 days, while the author was imprisoned in the Bas Leggi tutto
I never thought that I would become tired of sex. In the last twelve months, however, I’ve done it more times, and with more women, than I had in all the previous years of my life combined; and recently I’ve noticed a change, a hint of boredom creeping into my lovemaking, like the shadow of a pot-be Leggi tutto
