Quick Overview

Justine was the Marquis de Sade's first novella, written in 1787, whilst imprisoned for two weeks in the Bastille.

Although published anonymously, de Sade was eventually indicted for blasphemy and obscenity (without trial) for the authorship of 'Justine' at the behest of Napoleon Bonaparte.
