Sade Moraliste : Le dévoilement de la pensée sadienne à la lumière de la réforme pénale au XVIIIe siècle

Preface by Maurice LEVER

0.00 CHF tax incl.

For two centuries, Sade’s immorality, his defence of crime, vice and evil, has been a given of literary criticism. Critics have been concerned with explaining how instead of asking why. This book challenges this great misinterpretation in the history of ideas. How far does Sade believe what he writes? When his work is set in context, strange coincidences between the Sadian world and eighteenth-century French penal reform are revealed. Sade the moralist emerges from considering the legal environment of an imprisoned writer. An examination of his complete works shows that while the traditional assumption of immorality divides them, it is in fact his morality that binds them together.
