The Depravities of Sodom as the Perversities of France

eBook - 2008
Rate this:
This work aims to separate de Sade the individual from his image in order to better understand his philosophy regarding the?libertine? status quo on the Ancien Râegime in France. By doing so, his prophetic magnum opus, The One Hundred Days of Sodom, is parted from the accretions of misapprehension which have surrounded it and shown as the author intended it to be: a philosophical mirror by which France would recognize its foibles and its errant ways.
