  • Justine, Philosophy In The Bedroom, & Other Writings


Despite the deliberate destruction of over three-quarters of his work, Sade remains a major figure in the history of ideas. His influence on some of the greatest minds of the last century-from Baudelaire and Swinburne to Nietzsche, Dostoyevsky, and Kafka-is indisputable.

This volume contains the only authentic and complete American edition of his most famous work, JUSTINE; PHILOSOPHY IN THE BEDROOM, a major novel that presents the clearest summation of his political philosophy; and EUGENIE DE FRANVAL, a novella widely considered a masterpiece of eighteenth-century French literature.

This literary portrait of Sade is completed by one of his earliest philosophical efforts, DIALOGUE BETWEEN A PRIEST AND A DYING MAN, a selection of his letters, a fifty-page chronology of his life, two important essays on Sade, and a bibliography of his work.
