Brief Lives: Marquis De Sade by David Carter
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Arrested many times for sexual misdemeanours, the Marquis de Sade was imprisoned in the Bastille, where he was writing "120 Days of Sodom" and "The Misfortunes of Virtue" at the time that it was stormed in 1789. After the French Revolution he was again imprisoned and sent to an asylum, where he wrote diaries and plays. With the details of his life writ large in gossip sheets and whispered in outraged Parisian salons, de Sade's life story is as unpredictable and scandalous as his ever-popular prose.
