This is an introduction to the Marquis de Sade's four most notorious novels: "120 Days of Sodom", "Philosophy in the Boudoir", "Justine" and "Juliette". Informed by a wide range of contemporary theories, John Phillips's controversial study challenges conventional perspectives on the notorious "pornographer" and suggests new ways of reading his most shocking narratives. Setting all four novels in their historical and biographical context, Phillips provides a comprehensive and readable analysis of works that have exercised an enormous influence on literature, art and cinema in the 19th and 20th centuries.
