Angela Carter fell for it: Aug 23, Annette rated it did not like it Recommends it for: Pervs and giant dildo lovers they are different. I thought that was interesting enough to make me buy the book. Yes, I know De Sade was purposefully pushing the limits.
There are no questions I have about this book that I want to know the answers to. Although, if you can segregate some scenes from the rest of the book and put sticky notes on those pages Not that I would know.
I’ve been told this by unnamed third parties. Moral of the story: Rarely do I write a review on a book I’m not finished with, but this warrants it, as I’ve taken a bit of marqufs for reading this in the first place.
Firstly, this book is a tough read, due to the incredibly disturbing sexual violence. Before I hit pages, I put it down, determined to never finish it. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all”I decided to give The Marquis another go, and ,arques do I write a review on a book I’m not finished with, but this warrants it, as I’ve taken a bit of heat for reading this in the first place.
Juliette is better read with some insight into the life of The Marquis, which isn’t quite what most historians would have you to believe. While he was a deviant, by most “normal” standards, he appears to be innocent of the majority of the villainy portrayed in his books. What he was, though, was a champion of ssde oppressed, which he obviously considered marquess.
sde He, though a member of the aristocracy, wasn’t “one of them”, and suffered a great deal at their hands, especially the hands of his mother in law. Karma come full circle. This book offers an insight into French history that no text book will ever give, and a clearer understanding of why the French Revolution was such a blood bath.
Justine (de Sade novel) – Wikipedia
I believe The Marquis de Sade to be a master of metaphor, albeit not ones I would have chosen. The man was clearly brilliant, and one hell of a writer. I also admire the fact that The Marquis had the courage of his conviction, to the point that he said, in a letter to his wife, “either kill me or accept me as I am, for may hell freeze over if I ever change”.
In my book, that’s called chutzpah. Perhaps my opinion will change when I finish the book, although I doubt it. This book is not a book of pornography, it is a book of philosophy. Anyone who reads this for the sex depicted in it should seek psychiatric help. View all 5 comments. I read about half of Juliette about 20 years ago. It’s a long, repetitive book so please forgive ,arques for abandoning it!
Can I give four stars to a book that I abandoned? Four stars for a book that I’ve described as repetitive? Although I’m sure that there are people somewhere who would consider de Sade a lightweight, I’m also sure that For example I remember getting to the point where de Sade had c I read about half of Juliette about 20 years ago.
It’s the unrelenting monotony of de Sade’s sexual visions and scenarios that had me in the end. They should be described as foul and depraved rather than as erotic as they focus fe much on shit, piss, blood and vomit and the sex isn’t kinky, it’s extreme and painfully violent.
I think I felt sick most of the time rather than aroused. Sxde if you’re into pain and body fluids you’ll probably find it titillating. Between the sexual perversions, when the libertines are relaxing and eating, there are usually passages in which the characters voice de Sade’s political and philosophical views.
These actually became more interesting than the monotonous sexual acts and de Sade comes across as a forerunner to Nietzsche sxde opposed to religion and in favour of man taking control of his own destiny. Everyone should read some Sade at some point as it’s truly astonishing to read. You just need to remember that it is fiction, it is the product of a person’s mind and not an historical record.
Juliette o las prosperidades del vicio
This did not actually happen! After all people read murder-mysteries and crime thrillers but do not condone the criminal acts that are described. Presumably they realise that it’s just a story. The Marquis is a very interesting historical figure and about the same time as I read Juliette I also read a biography by Maurice Lever which is thoroughly recommended.
Jul 25, Kezia rated it it was amazing Shelves: Juliette is to Justine what Ada is to Lolita: I can’t say it much better than another reviewer more famous than me. If Sade is a religion, this is its bible. And if you liked Justine, you may be sorry to hear she has a cameo in Juliette. Sade the philosopher is in force, and his treatises – like his other novels delivered by key characters – are interspersed with the sex and violence one expect Juliette is to Justine what Ada is to Lolita: Sade the philosopher is in force, and his treatises – like his other novels delivered by key characters – are interspersed with the sex and violence one expects.
I recommend a brief familiarity with his biography and political beliefs, and probably reading his Philosophy in the Bedroom, before reading Juliette.
Otherwise Sade can appear to be a mass of contradictions. He respects the state and the institution of democracy yet rejects law. His characters expound on their superiority over other living things yet he writes brilliantly on the equality of animals and humans.
In any case Juliette is a masterpiece of fiction with many concurrent undertones. Juliette is a feminist far before her time, a heroine and anti-heroine, a victim-turned-predator who rejects conventional sex roles and relationships and perhaps one of literature’s first unrepentant bisexuals. There will always be a question of whether Sade is pornographic, but there can never be a question of his value to literature.
De Sade’s immense novel of explicit debauchery. Just started it and already it’s pretty sensational stuff. Lesbian nuns and dildos and cunt sucking and ass licking and spraying orgasmic juices all described just like that. Remember, this thing was written hundreds of years ago.
This is a massive 6-part novel; it’s going to take a good long while to read this. The companion novel is the better-known, “Justine. Apr 30, Tony rated it liked it. How should this be rated? Interesting question as I knew what to expect well, largelyand yet There is some interesting philosophising, mainly and obviously with religion and politics, but most of this is the product of a mind polluted by circumstance and opportunity.
