The Marquis de Sade : a very short introduction by John Phillips( Book )
10 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 409 libraries worldwide
"From his infamous libertine novels to his championing of atheism, the Marquis de Sade's writing remains as powerful and shocking today as when it was first published." "This Very Short Introduction disentangles the real Sade from his almost demonic reputation of the past 200 years, and examines the literary and artistic legacy he has left behind. John Phillips reveals a revolutionary thinker determined to illuminate the dark corners of the human psyche, challenge the taboos of religious morality, and put the human body back into philosophy."--Jacket

How to read Sade by John Phillips( Book )
8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 206 libraries worldwide
"Intent upon letting the reader experience the pleasure and intellectual stimulation in reading these classic authors, the How to Read series provides a context and an explanation that will facilitate and enrich your understanding of texts vital to the canon. Approaching the writing of major intellectuals, artists, and philosophers need no longer be daunting. How to Read is a new sort of introduction--a personal master class in reading--that brings you face to face with the work of some of the most influential and challenging writers in history. In lucid, accessible language, these books explain essential topics such as the historical context that frames de Sade's daring philosophy. John Phillips introduces the Marquis de Sade's highly original and thoroughly subversive depiction of human sexuality, and the philosophical and political thinking that underpins it. He shows how, though Sade's work continues to shock, it can also be seen as the logical conclusion of eighteenth-century materialism. As the only writer of his time who dared to put the body at the center of philosophy, Sade has a unique place in the history of modern thought."--Publisher's website

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 162 libraries worldwide
Placing Robbe-Grillet's filmic oeuvre in the related contexts of both his novelistic work and the different historical and cultural periods in which his films were made, this book traces lines of influence and continuity in his work which is shown to exhibit a consistent preoccupation with anidentifiable body of themes, motifs and structures

Who suffers in the pursuit of desire? The Countess de Lorsange reveals her history, in a tavern, to a young woman named Therese; where a young girl and her sister fight a battle of morality. Set in a period before the French Revolution, Justine shows the battle of virtue versus vice, where earning your keep takes on fresh connotations, and a titled lady holds a lifetime of illicit secrets
