Angela Carter (1940-1992) has written a feminist reading of the Marquis De Sade. Carter has also used the work of the Marquis as a springboard for her own insights on the relation of sexuality to power. She is able to demonstrate that sexuality is constructed not from gender but rather form a relationship between power and politics. A must-read feminist classic.

A very thoughtful book which puts Sade's work in a whole new light. Thoughtful, evenhanded and intelligent. This one is worth the read for anyone interested in going beyond the superficial with Sade. There is a lot of nonsensence about him -- finally, someone with something important to say!

I like this book. It speaks a lot about Marquis De Sade. It is practically a mini bio of him.

Angela Carter, is the premier feminist, but this book wasn't quite for me. I had no idea who Marquis de Sade was until I read this book, and I slightly wish I never had. Angela Carter tries to bring life to De Sade's female characters, which she does, but I just couldn't get passed the section where she talks of the women licking men's butts and being connisiuers of poop. Really, I just wish Marquis de Sade's work would be swept under some carpet and never be read.
