The 120 days of Sodom and other writings by Sade ( Book )
16 editions published between 1936 and 1991 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Marquis de Sade, vilified by respectable society from his own time through ours, apotheosized by Apollinaire as "the freest spirit that has yet existed," wrote The 120 Days of Sodom while imprisoned in the Bastille. An exhaustive catalogue of sexual aberrations and the first systematic exploration-a hundred years before Krafft-Ebing and Freud-of the psychology of sex, it is considered Sade's crowning achievement and the cornerstone of his thought. Lost after the storming of the Bastille in 1789, it was later retrieved but remained unpublished until 1935. In addition to The 120 Days, this volume includes Sade's "Reflections on the Novel," his play Oxtiem, and his novella Ernestine. The selections are introduced by Simone de Beauvoir's landmark essay "Must We Burn Sade?" and Pierre Klossowski's provocative "Nature as Destructive Principle." "Imperious, choleric, irascible, extreme in everything, with a dissolute imagination the like of which has never been seen, atheistic to the point of fanaticism, there you have me in a nutshell, and kill me again or take me as I am, for I shall not change."-From Sade's Last Will and Testament." -- from http://www.amazon.com (April 19, 2011)

Letters from prison by Sade ( Book )
3 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume of 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."--BOOK JACKET
The mystified magistrate and other tales by Sade ( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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 Villeblanche" 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 the fairest way to settle unfair accounts. Yet throughout, these tales are infused with a light touch and mordant wit, "well within the boundaries of modesty and decency," as Sade himself noted, albeit "sometimes a trifle bawdy."" "These tales constitute a portion of his "regular writings" - as opposed to his knowingly clandestine writings - to which Sade attached a special importance. For if he was writing not to be read in his scandalous works, here he was hoping to enhance his reputation as a storyteller of wit and charm."--BOOK JACKET
