Selected Letters

3.4  ·  Rating Details ·  15 Ratings  ·  0 Reviews
First discovered in 1948, these thirty-two letters were written mostly from prison. De Sade appeals to his wife to help in securing his release; he describes his appalling conditions as a prisoner; decries the judiciary; and decries the futility of punishment. The letters give a fascinating insight into the mind of one of literature's most controversial figures.
