More About The Complete Marquis de Sade by Paul J. Gillette; John S. Yankowski
 
 
 
Overview
A rare two-volume translation of Marquis de Sade's titillating and shocking writings, The Complete Marquis de Sade has now been released by Holloway House Publishing in a single trade edition-size volume to commemorate the first printing's 40th anniversary. Adorned with gripping cover art by Man Ray and translated by renowned scholar Dr. Paul J. Gillette, this dramatic collection includes "Justine," "Juliette," "120 Days of Sodom," "Philosophy In the Bedroom," and many other writings often scattered among "pastiche" versions of de Sade's work. The Complete Marquis de Sade is also free of the author's reprtitions, polemics, and syntactically complex 18th century phrases that plague many unedited versions of his writing. "The best English language edition of de Sade we've seen in many a year," writes Paris Jour of the Holloway House release. "Crisp, bold, and diabolically direct...This is the translation against which all future attempts must be compared."
