The Marquis de Sade was a French aristocrat, revolutionary, and writer of philosophy-laden, and often, violent pornography. He was a philosopher of extreme freedom, unrestrained by morality, religion or law, with the pursuit of personal pleasure being the highest principle. There is perhaps no more infamous figure in all of literature. Collected here in this omnibus edition are three of his most important works Justine, The 120 Days of Sodom, and Florville and Courval. These are erotic literary classics.
