October 2021

Oxford World's Classics

Loosely based on one of the most notorious crimes of the seventeenth century, The Marquise de Gange by The Marquis de Sade is a neglected classic. Although a departure from his earlier pornographic and libertine works, the novel reads with the same subversive tension of an author plotting against virtue in his distress.
