Rachel No, I think De Sade believed his own philosophy. There are a lot of things in his books that are tongue in cheek, and a lot of things he is mocking, but whenever the characters go off on those random, vitriolic tirades on philosophy, I believe that De Sade believes himself.

He's a madman. He's a madman but his viewpoint cannot be dismissed.

Ben Lovegrove Did Burroughs actually read de Sade? He said he found it "heavy going". I'm a fan of both, but I think Burroughs had other influences.
