Connisiuers of Poop,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Sadeian Woman: And the Ideology of Pornography (Paperback)
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.

Isn't that the point? It seems Ms. Carter accomplished her mission here. You may wish it be swept under the rug, but you can't, can you?

Yes, but I was like in high school when I read this book, so I had limited understanding of all of this. Still do! lol.
