JUSTINE OR THE MISFORTUNES OF VIRTUE PDF

Having watched documentaries about De Sade which depicted him as a dribbling sot in an institution for the insane, I had expected De Sade is obviously no fool, and his arguments are intelligently put. In this novel, De Sade still conforms to Victorian norms in the respect that even libertine, rebellious De Sade felt he had to wrap everything he said in euphemistic terms, in spite of the fact that the content of the novel and the gist of his rhetoric would indeed have been wildly shocking to most Victorian sensibilities. Compared to certain contemporary literature, such as some of the works of authors like Palanuik, for example in his novel Snuff , also, various writings of J.

Having watched documentaries about De Sade which depicted him as a dribbling sot in an institution for the insane, I had expected De Sade is obviously no fool, and his arguments are intelligently put. In this novel, De Sade still conforms to Victorian norms in the respect that even libertine, rebellious De Sade felt he had to wrap everything he said in euphemistic terms, in spite of the fact that the content of the novel and the gist of his rhetoric would indeed have been wildly shocking to most Victorian sensibilities.

Compared to certain contemporary literature, such as some of the works of authors like Palanuik, for example in his novel Snuff , also, various writings of J. Ballard, Samuel R. Justine is the quintessential sad sac of the ages. De Sade paints her as a poor meek little thing who, according to him, deserves her end because of her continued piousness. His rhetoric is of course completely distorted, but one does get a sense that she possibly unwittingly or subconsciously invites victimhood.

De Sade subverts a very common trope, by having a punishment that is usually visited upon sinners, strike down the innocent instead. One often has to wonder why a lightning bolt never came down from heaven to strike the sinful Marquis himself down. I liked that at least De Sade does not try to justify sadism as anything else than what it really is. He removes all the cobwebby romanticism, the smarmy treacle that these proclivities tend to be marinated in in popular fiction.

Proper review to follow when time permits.

Justine, or The Misfortunes of Virtue

It is a novella pages with relatively little of the obscenity that characterized his later writing, as it was written in the classical style which was fashionable at the time , with much verbose and metaphorical description.

The two together formed 10 volumes of nearly pages in total; publication was completed in Napoleon Bonaparte ordered the arrest of the anonymous author of Justine and Juliette, and as a result de Sade was incarcerated for the last 13 years of his life.
