This volume of the Marquis de Sade's correspondence from prison covers a thirteen-year period, from 1777 when he was incarcerated in the Vincennes fortress near Paris, to 1789 when he was transferred from the Bastille shortly before it was stormed at the outset of the French Revolution, to the Charenton insane asylum, from which he was finally freed on April 2 - Good Friday - 1790. From ever danker and drearier cells, even as his health declined with each passing year, Sade wrote with supreme eloquence and increasing bitterness about the harsh conditions he was forced to endure, using his pen as a deadly weapon to lash out at his tormentors. This collection includes letters to his devoted wife, Renee-Pelagie de Montreuil de Sade; to his hated mother-in-law, the presidente de Montreuil, who put him and kept him in jail; to Milli de Rousset, a woman of wit and spirit whom Sade admired and loved platonically; to his so-called friends; to his jailers; to business associates and employees. In these letters, Sade rails at the hypocrisy of those who condemn him for 'crimes' of which most of his peers - including many of his accusers - are just as guilty as he, while showing his wife a tenderness and care most people have never before associated with the oft-vilified marquis. Almost two centuries after his death, Sade remains a figure of intrigue, a true rebel with a cause, one who despite all attempts to suppress his works remains a vital and enduring influence. B&W illus. 401p.

.This volume contains the title novella, “The Mystified Magistrate,” in which Sade uses his pen to avenge all the wrongs visited upon him throughout his tumultuous life by the French judicial system, especially the court of Aix in his native Provence, two full-length tales, “Augustine de Ville blanche” and “Emilie de Tourville”; and a selected number of Sade’s tales and short stories. Many of Sade’s favorite themes and pet peeves are present here: the hypocrisy and stupidity of blind justice and those who serve her, the wily duplicity and dishonesty of the clergy on all levels, the total corruption of society jealousy, revenge, and more. Notes. 211p.
