At Home with the Marquis de Sade
Francine du Plessix Gray (au). This groundbreaking account of the scandalous life & violent times of the Donatien Alphonse Francoise, Marquis de Sade, explores his relationship with his family: his pious wife, Renee-Pelagie, his iron-willed mother-in-law, Mme. de Montreuil, & his three children. Marquis de Sade (1740-1814), one of the most perplexing personalities of Western culture, has been called ‘the freest spirit who ever lived’. The author vividly brings to life these 2 dynamic women & the complex bonds they evolved with the Marquis, as they dedicated themselves to protecting, curbing &, ultimately, confining him. Recreates the hedonism & corruption of late-18th-cent. France, the ensuing Terror, & the oppression of the Napoleonic regime. Illustrations.
