“The 120 Days of Sodom” is a 1785 novel by the French writer and nobleman Donatien Alphonse François. It is the story of four aristocratic male libertines who decide to seek out ultimate sexual gratification in the form of orgies. To this end, they seclude themselves in a remote castle in the heart of the Black Forest for four months, along with a harem of 46 victims—most of whom are young male and female teenagers. Donatien Alphonse François, Marquis de Sade (1740 –1814) was a French revolutionary politician, aristocrat, philosopher, and writer, famous for his libertine sexuality. Other notable works by this author include: “Justine, or the Misfortunes of Virtue”; “Juliette”, and “Philosophy in the Bedroom”. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality, addition complete with the original text and artwork.
