The Marquis de Sade : a very short introduction by John Phillips( Book )
12 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 418 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 )
10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 211 libraries worldwide
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 centre of philosophy, Sade has a unique place in the history of modern thought. Extracts are taken from the whole range of Sade's literary, philosophical and personal writings, including The 120 Days of Sodom, Philosophy in the Boudoir, Justine, Juliette, and his Last Will and Testament

Alain Robbe-Grillet by John Phillips( Book )
8 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 182 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
Sodom and Gomorrah : on the everyday reality and persecution of homosexuals in the Middle Ages by Bernd-Ulrich Hergemöller( Book )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 163 libraries worldwide
Justine, or : the misfortunes of virtue by Sade( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 140 libraries worldwide
"This is the first new translation in over forty years of Sade's novel Justine. It is also the first ever critical edition, based on the original 1791 version of the story, which is the most accessible and artistically successful of the three versions. The novel tells the story of the beautiful and devout Justine, whose steadfast faith and naive trust destine her from the outset for sexual exploitation and martyrdom. The unending catalog of disasters that befall her, during which she is subject to any number of perverse practices, illustrate Sade's belief in the primacy of Nature over civilization. Virtue is no match for vice, and as criminality and violence triumph, Justine is doomed to suffer. Indeed, the novel mounts a ferocious physical and intellectual assault on absolute notions of good and evil. John Phillips's lively translation conveys the tone of Sade's original text and his introduction situates Sade's narrative in its historical, literary, and philosophical background, discussing such major themes as attitudes to women, the church, the justice system, and the world of finance, the sadistic and masochistic elements, and the novel's reception. The extensive notes shed light on religious and philosophical ideas and explain allusions to topical events." --Amazon.com
