Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Is there a list of the books on the list?


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Yes -- I've added it to the list description above.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) No problem ... was going to do that anyway! :)


message 5: by Antoine (new)

Antoine I can't, in all honesty, recommend these particular editions of the works that are translated into English (for instance, Jowett's Plato is strictly for masochists), but those books I picked on their more general merits.


message 6: by Thom (new)

Thom Dunn Marquis de Sade is not essential reading, not erotic either--it's garbage written by a sick fuck who mutilated and killed young women. This reco is a bit like those assholes who say, "Ya know, Hitler had some good ideas.....". Simone de Beauvoir put it best:" DeSade set out to bugger the world, and the world answered him with silence."

Right on, Thom.
