Abstract:

Doctor Royer-Collard, head of Charenton Asylum, is visted by Renee Pelagie, wife of the asylum's most notorious inmate, the Marquis de Sade. She pays the doctor to keep her husband from writing his sadomasochistic pornography. The Abbe Coulmier confiscates the Marquis' quills and paper, but lascivious new stories begin circulating in public, carried out of the asylum by Madeleine, a seamstress. Forbidden to see the girl, the Marquis devises a plan to whisper stories from.

Lunatic to lunatic, until Madeleine can write them down, but she is murdered by the last lunatic, in whose cell she crouches. A riot ensues, and the Abbe's attempts to silence the Marquis grow increasingly desperate and violent, until the Marquis is dead and the Abbe himself is mad.
