Abstract:

"The five stories in this collection are taken from Les Crimes de l'Amour, originally published in 1800. Sade is best known for his sensational books Justine and Les Cent Vingt Journees de Sodome (The Hundred and Twenty Days of Sodom), yet in his lifetime these and other major works appeared in anonymous or clandestine editions or remained unpublished. It was while he was detained in prison and incarcerated in the asylum at Charenton that he decided to follow up his p̀hilosophical' novel Aline et Valcour with writings more accessible to the general public. And he wanted to prove he was not a mere pornographer but a moralist, like Voltaire and other contemporaries." "In The Crimes of Love Sade contends that love can lead to crime and thence to punishment. Unlike the villains of his major novels, the men and women described in these pages all come to a sticky end. Sade was fascinated by incest but claimed that he did ǹot want to make vice liked'. The stories also illustrate his love of history and his frustrated passion for drama, while R̀odrigo or The Enchanted Tower' is an intriguing example of this complex writer's flight into fantasy - his only means of escape from detention."--BOOK JACKET.
