His ex-wife and children had agreed to pay his pension there. Constance, pretending to be his relative, was allowed to live with him at Charenton. In , new police orders put Sade into solitary confinement and deprived him of pens and paper. In , the government ordered Coulmier to suspend all theatrical performances. Sade began a sexual relationship with year-old Madeleine LeClerc, daughter of an employee at Charenton.
This affair lasted some four years, until his death in These instructions were not followed; he was buried at Charenton.
His skull was later removed from the grave for phrenological examination. Numerous writers and artists, especially those concerned with sexuality, have been both repelled and fascinated by Sade. He has garnered the title of rapist and pedophile , and critics have debated whether his work has any redeeming value. An article in The Independent , a British online newspaper , gives contrasting views: He has the same sense of tragedy, the same sweeping grandeur" while anarchist philosopher Michel Onfray said, "it is intellectually bizarre to make Sade a hero Even according to his most hero-worshipping biographers, this man was a sexual delinquent".
Geoffrey Gorer , an English anthropologist and author — , wrote one of the earliest books on Sade entitled The Revolutionary Ideas of the Marquis de Sade in He pointed out that Sade was in complete opposition to contemporary philosophers for both his "complete and continual denial of the right to property" and for viewing the struggle in late 18th century French society as being not between "the Crown, the bourgeoisie , the aristocracy or the clergy, or sectional interests of any of these against one another", but rather all of these "more or less united against the proletariat.
Thus, Gorer argued, "he can with some justice be called the first reasoned socialist. Simone de Beauvoir in her essay Must we burn Sade? He has also been seen as a precursor of Sigmund Freud 's psychoanalysis in his focus on sexuality as a motive force. The surrealists admired him as one of their forerunners, and Guillaume Apollinaire famously called him "the freest spirit that has yet existed".
Pierre Klossowski , in his book Sade Mon Prochain "Sade My Neighbour" , analyzes Sade's philosophy as a precursor of nihilism , negating Christian values and the materialism of the Enlightenment. One of the essays in Max Horkheimer and Theodor Adorno 's Dialectic of Enlightenment is titled "Juliette, or Enlightenment and Morality" and interprets the ruthless and calculating behavior of Juliette as the embodiment of the philosophy of enlightenment. Similarly, psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan posited in his essay "Kant avec Sade" that Sade's ethics was the complementary completion of the categorical imperative originally formulated by Immanuel Kant.

However, at least one philosopher has rejected Adorno and Horkheimer's claim that Sade's moral skepticism is actually coherent, or that it reflects Enlightenment thought. Connolly analyzes Sade's Philosophy in the Bedroom as an argument against earlier political philosophers, notably Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Thomas Hobbes , and their attempts to reconcile nature, reason, and virtue as bases of ordered society.
Similarly, Camille Paglia  argued that Sade can be best understood as a satirist, responding "point by point" to Rousseau's claims that society inhibits and corrupts mankind's innate goodness: Paglia notes that Sade wrote in the aftermath of the French Revolution, when Rousseauist Jacobins instituted the bloody Reign of Terror and Rousseau's predictions were brutally disproved.
Sade, laughing grimly, agrees. In The Sadeian Woman: And the Ideology of Pornography , Angela Carter provides a feminist reading of Sade, seeing him as a "moral pornographer" who creates spaces for women. By contrast, Andrea Dworkin saw Sade as the exemplary woman-hating pornographer, supporting her theory that pornography inevitably leads to violence against women. One chapter of her book Pornography: Men Possessing Women is devoted to an analysis of Sade.
Susie Bright claims that Dworkin's first novel Ice and Fire , which is rife with violence and abuse, can be seen as a modern retelling of Sade's Juliette. Sexual sadism disorder , a mental condition named after Sade, has been defined as experiencing sexual arousal in response to extreme pain, suffering or humiliation done non-consensually to others as described in Sade's novels.
It is distinct from situations where consenting individuals use mild or simulated pain or humiliation for sexual excitement. The poet Algernon Charles Swinburne is also said to have been highly influenced by Sade. The philosopher of egoist anarchism Max Stirner is also speculated to have been influenced by Sade's work. Serial killer Ian Brady, who with Myra Hindley carried out torture and murder of children known as the Moors murders in England during the s, was fascinated by Sade, and the suggestion was made at their trial and appeals  that the tortures of the children the screams and pleadings of whom they tape-recorded were influenced by Sade's ideas and fantasies.
According to Donald Thomas , who has written a biography on Sade, Brady and Hindley had read very little of Sade's actual work; the only book of his they possessed was an anthology of excerpts that included none of his most extreme writings. In Philosophy in the Bedroom Sade proposed the use of induced abortion for social reasons and population control, marking the first time the subject had been discussed in public. It has been suggested that Sade's writing influenced the subsequent medical and social acceptance of abortion in Western society.
There have been many and varied references to the Marquis de Sade in popular culture , including fictional works and biographies. The eponym of the psychological and subcultural term sadism , his name is used variously to evoke sexual violence , licentiousness, and freedom of speech.
He thus became a symbol of the artist's struggle with the censor. Sade's use of pornographic devices to create provocative works that subvert the prevailing moral values of his time inspired many other artists in a variety of media. The cruelties depicted in his works gave rise to the concept of sadism. Sade's works have to this day been kept alive by artists and intellectuals because they espouse a philosophy of extreme individualism. In the late 20th century, there was a resurgence of interest in Sade; leading French intellectuals like Roland Barthes , Jacques Lacan , Jacques Derrida , and Michel Foucault  published studies of the philosopher, and interest in Sade among scholars and artists continued.
Sade's life and works have been the subject of numerous fictional plays, films, pornographic or erotic drawings, etchings, and more. Quills , inspired by Sade's imprisonment and battles with the censorship in his society,  portrays him as a literary freedom fighter who is a martyr to the cause of free expression.
Often Sade himself has been depicted in American popular culture less as a revolutionary or even as a libertine and more akin to a sadistic, tyrannical villain. For example, in the final episode of the television series Friday the 13th: The Series , Micki, the female protagonist, travels back in time and ends up being imprisoned and tortured by Sade.
Similarly, in the horror film Waxwork , Sade is among the film's wax villains to come alive. The Marquis de Sade viewed Gothic fiction as a genre that relied heavily on magic and phantasmagoria. In his literary criticism Sade sought to prevent his fiction from being labeled "Gothic" by emphasizing Gothic's supernatural aspects as the fundamental difference from themes in his own work.
But while he sought this separation he believed the Gothic played a necessary role in society and discussed its roots and its uses. He wrote that the Gothic novel was a perfectly natural, predictable consequence of the revolutionary sentiments in Europe.
He theorized that the adversity of the period had rightfully caused Gothic writers to "look to hell for help in composing their alluring novels. Sade nevertheless believed that the genre was at odds with itself, arguing that the supernatural elements within Gothic fiction created an inescapable dilemma for both its author and its readers.
He argued that an author in this genre was forced to choose between elaborate explanations of the supernatural or no explanation at all and that in either case the reader was unavoidably rendered incredulous. Despite his celebration of The Monk , Sade believed that there was not a single Gothic novel that had been able to overcome these problems, and that a Gothic novel that did would be universally regarded for its excellence in fiction.
Many assume that Sade's criticism of the Gothic novel is a reflection of his frustration with sweeping interpretations of works like Justine. Within his objections to the lack of verisimilitude in the Gothic may have been an attempt to present his own work as the better representation of the whole nature of man. Since Sade professed that the ultimate goal of an author should be to deliver an accurate portrayal of man, it is believed that Sade's attempts to separate himself from the Gothic novel highlights this conviction.

For Sade, his work was best suited for the accomplishment of this goal in part because he was not chained down by the supernatural silliness that dominated late 18th-century fiction. Sade's fiction has been tagged under many different titles, including pornography, Gothic, and baroque. Sade's most famous books are often classified not as Gothic but as libertine novels , and include the novels Justine , or the Misfortunes of Virtue ; Juliette ; The Days of Sodom ; and Philosophy in the Bedroom.
These works challenge traditional perceptions of sexuality, religion, law, age, and gender. His opinions on sexual violence, sadism , and pedophilia stunned even those contemporaries of Sade who were quite familiar with the dark themes of the Gothic novel during its popularity in the late 18th century. Suffering is the primary rule, as in these novels one must often decide between sympathizing with the torturer or the victim. While these works focus on the dark side of human nature, the magic and phantasmagoria that dominates the Gothic is noticeably absent and is the primary reason these works are not considered to fit the genre.
Through the unreleased passions of his libertines, Sade wished to shake the world at its core. With Days , for example, Sade wished to present "the most impure tale that has ever been written since the world exists. Simone de Beauvoir and Georges Bataille have argued that the repetitive form of his libertine novels, though hindering the artfulness of his prose, ultimately strengthened his individualist arguments. Subtitled "Heroic and Tragic Tales", Sade combines romance and horror , employing several Gothic tropes for dramatic purposes. There is blood, banditti , corpses, and of course insatiable lust.
Compared to works like Justine , here Sade is relatively tame, as overt eroticism and torture is subtracted for a more psychological approach. It is the impact of sadism instead of acts of sadism itself that emerge in this work, unlike the aggressive and rapacious approach in his libertine works. In its portrayal of conventional moralities it is something of a departure from the erotic cruelties and moral ironies that dominate his libertine works.

It opens with a domesticated approach:. To enlighten mankind and improve its morals is the only lesson which we offer in this story. In reading it, may the world discover how great is the peril which follows the footsteps of those who will stop at nothing to satisfy their desires. Descriptions in Justine seem to anticipate Radcliffe 's scenery in The Mysteries of Udolpho and the vaults in The Italian , but, unlike these stories, there is no escape for Sade's virtuous heroine, Justine.
Unlike the milder Gothic fiction of Radcliffe, Sade's protagonist is brutalized throughout and dies tragically. To have a character like Justine, who is stripped without ceremony and bound to a wheel for fondling and thrashing, would be unthinkable in the domestic Gothic fiction written for the bourgeoisie. Sade even contrives a kind of affection between Justine and her tormentors, suggesting shades of masochism in his heroine. Despite the strong adverse reaction to Sade's work and Sade's own disassociation from the Gothic novel, the similarities between the fiction of sadism and the Gothic novel were much closer than many of its readers or providers even realized.
It features the sadistic Mrs. Rod, whose boarding school for young women becomes a torture chamber equipped with its own "flogging-room".

Ironically, The New Monk wound up increasing the level of cruelty, but as a parody of the genre, it illuminates the link between sadism and the Gothic novel. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For the French post-punk band, see Marquis de Sade band. For the film, see De Sade film.
