One of the things that I like most about good literature is its ability to break the confines of conventionalism Literature, in that sense, is tantamount to being a libertine This novel takes the reader to the darkest of the darkest corners of possible, degrading, violent, scatological behaviour And yet, the fact that it creates a certain fascination that will not allow the reader to halt his

conventionalism Literature, in that sense, is tantamount to being a libertine This novel takes the reader to the darkest of the darkest corners of possible, degrading, violent, scatological behaviour And yet, the fact that it creates a certain fascination that will not allow the reader to halt his or her reading the text, is an achievement in itself The 120 Days of Sodom is a voyage of cruelty, the same that the Marquis received on his end of the rainbow, and serves also as a dark reflection of his times Let us not forget that the times he had to live in were exceedingly dark, bloody, violent and quite monstruous in itself Let us not be fooled by our hurt sensibilities when we read this magnum opus For it is one of humanity s best texts, one of the most illuminating, and certainly one of the 20 or 30 books I would gladly take with me were I to live in a deserted island Scholars have tried to read all kinds of things into de Sade s cornerstone of transgressive literature Is it a book about totalitarianism, as Pasolini s movie version implies Is it trying to shed light on humanity s dark side, as Simone de Beauvoir suggests Are we dealing with a satirical take on Jean Jacques Rousseau Camille Paglia s opinion , or even with a work of pornology , as Gilles Deleuze assumes I tend to take aradical view This book is the epitomy of nihilism, it is not tr Scholars have tried to read all kinds of things into de Sade s cornerstone of transgressive literature Is it a book about totalitarianism, as Pasolini s movie version implies Is it trying to shed light on humanity s dark side, as Simone de Beauvoir suggests Are we dealing with a satirical take on Jean Jacques Rousseau Camille Paglia s opinion , or even with a work of pornology , as Gilles Deleuze assumes I tend to take aradical view This book is the epitomy of nihilism, it is not trying to tell us anything Instead, it tries to push the envelope of sexual deviation as far as possible to no particular end, just for the sake of it The result is extremely repulsive, which in this case means that de Sade s mission is successful He wants to shock and disturb, and he does The book tells the story of four middle aged, wealthy French libertines who spend 120 days in a castle in the Black Forest in order to indulge in extreme sexual acts The protagonists have been abusing their daughters and now marry each other s kids while proceeding to sexually exploit them They also choose 8 female and 8 male child teenage sex slaves from a large number of kids abducted for the purpose The rest of the personnel includes eight studs chosen for their large penises, four elderly women, cooks and servants, plus four middle aged women who specialize in deviant sexual practices.Those middle aged women are crucial for the structure of the book, which has remained a fragment with only the first of four partsor less finished Each part is structured in 30 days and dedicated to different kinds of so called passions Simple, complex, criminal and murderous In a sinister take on One Thousand and One Nights, the middle aged women tell stories about perverse events that stimulate the libertines to do similar or the same things to their victims Be aware that the simple passions start with rape, child abuse and child prostitution, later acts involve feces, sodomy, mutilation, and pretty much everything you can, or rather Hopefully can t imagine And yes 4 kinds of passions with 150 stories over 30 days each makes for 600 extreme sexual acts The book might not be finished, but de Sade outlined them all.This is literature as a dare The book is hard to get through because it is extremely disgusting and, somewhat mysteriously, also very boring While there is a comical aspect to some rather silly over the top schemes of degradation, it s overall just dull to read torture scene after torture scene after torture scene There is no emotional movement or development, it s just relentlessly cruel and repulsive Fun fact de Sade, who spent over 30 years in jail and mental institutions for his real life criminal behavior also involving child abuse , wrote the book while incarcerated in the Bastille he was transferred to another jail just two weeks before the Bastille was stormed in the French Revolution During those events, the scroll with the original text remained hidden in the cell where it was later discovered So is this great literature I d say no It sof an illustration of where a human mind can go, to what extremes a writer can take a text But apart from that demonstration, the book has nothing to say To find rationalizations, to construct a meta level in an attempt to render de Sade harmless might seem appealing, but the author wanted this text to be vicious, and it is.If you want to learnabout this text, you can listen to our podcast episode in German 3 FUCKED UP x s INFINITY STARS Marquis De Sade described his novel as the most impure tale that has ever been told since our

His actual sexual acts were fairly tame in the broad scheme of things 15 year old servants, but people were getting married at that age in his time As far as history records, his actual practical sexual tastes didn t extend much further than a little light flagellation and buggery What he really loved was to shock and upset people with what he wrote, and he was extraordinarily good at it In Philosophy in the Bedroom , he extends the theory that God must want us to have anal sex, or he wouldn t have made our arseholes so deliciously tight Well, what s to like The part where a grown man

spoiler shoots his load over a little girl s face Or the bits where people urinate on each other And those are the nicer parts hide spoiler I have to say that when I say this book was an amazing read, I am attempting to indicate that I was amazed in the real sense of the word I was astounded by the gravity of the text I was engulfed in darkly enthralled by the sheer disgust I felt I have never in my life beenhorrified and strangely captivated by a book and although it was not a pleasure read I feel it was an important book to explore, although not one I would rush to read again. I am not a prude I am not the type of person who will hesitate from delving into works others might find dark One of my favorite novels is the Exorcist, commonly regarded as one of the most terrifying books ever written I have pictures on the push pin board in front of me while I write this containing images from Silent Hill, Audition, and other really gruesome stuffof course, next to that I have pictures from It s a Wonderful Life and Aladdin, but that s not the point Point is, I have no I am not a prude I am not the type of person who will hesitate from delving into works others might find dark One of my favorite novels is the Exorcist, commonly regarded as one of the most terrifying books ever written I have pictures on the push pin board in front of me while I write this containing images from Silent Hill, Audition, and other really gruesome stuffof course, next to that I have pictures from It s a Wonderful Life and Aladdin, but that s not the point Point is, I have no issue with things people might think are a little unorthodox.This is not unorthodox This is sadist porn.Let me elaborate The term torture porn has been applied to many works people dismiss as just gory or too violent This is literal pornography in its most literal sense The work itself exists to demonstrate violence for violence s sake, with the plot if you can call it a plot existing just to bring the audience to the next act of sexual sadism These acts of sadism are grotesque, to the point where, if I were to bring up these acts in front of polite company, they d put me away.However, that s not why this book is rotten After all, it s supposed to be horrifying It s supposed to be repugnant That s what I thought when I read this book after seeing the Pier Pasolini film based on said book The movie is often regarded as the most disturbing thing many people have ever seen, but the film is merciful to its audience compared to the book One could argue that seeing these acts is far worse than reading about them, since one can just turn their mind off and blindly glance over the grotesque details However, the film does something that the book does not.It realizes its antagonists are evil.The book s most disturbing quality isn t that it shows disturbing material for the sake of it so much as that it does it AND ACTS LIKE IT S A GOOD THING I initially thought it was a satire of some sort, but then realized, after looking into de Sade s other work, this couldn t be the case This was just a list of the man s sexual fantasies, each onescrewed up than the last The loving detail put into this book is enough to make someone cry on the inside.And yet, upon reading this book, it cannot be forgotten It s magnetizing, and remains buried inside of your head for YEARS to come I ve thankfully used it as mild inspiration for my writing Whenever I need to hate one of my characters, I just think of how much I hate the villains in this book The desired effect comes shortly WARNING This review talks about some very gruesome things but if you re considering reading this book, you d best be ready for gore First can we talk about the fact that in the edition I read Wilder Publications 2008 , there s an amazing offense warning on it Why is it amazing, you ask Thanks for playing Because it reads as followsThis book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today Parents might wish to discuss with their childre WARNING This review talks about some very gruesome things but if you re considering reading this book, you d best be ready for gore First can we talk about the fact that in the edition I read Wilder Publications 2008 , there s an amazing offense warning on it Why is it amazing, you ask Thanks for playing Because it reads as followsThis book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today Parents might wish to discuss with their children how views on race have changed before allowing them to read this classic work HOLD THE FUCK UP Are you telling me are you telling me that the sick fucks over at Wilder Publications anticipate CHILDREN reading this book Look I hate censorship My parents never censored what I read and I turned out okay then again, I grew up to read books like this, so maybe not But if there was ever a case for a parent putting their foot down and taking a book away, this is it Frankly, I was kind of hoping my mommy would take it away and I m an adult Further, note that the warning says views on race Right, this book has zero mention of anything related to race There are many reasons this book is fucked up There are many, many, many reasons no child should read this book Permit me to give you a brief overview of those reasons that is by no means comprehensive Children are kidnapped, raped, and forcibly sodomized by middle aged men, sometimes their own fathers, on every page They re shot, stabbed, drowned, drugged, bled out, crushed, have limbs amputated with a saw, lit on fire, shat on, forced to eat shit, smothered, flogged, flayed, have their bone marrow sucked out, waterboarded, strangled, forced to walk across broken glass, scalded, roasted, toasted, forced to eat their own grilled flesh, forced to switch intestines with each other, shot from cannons, ground to dust, poisoned, nailed to tables, nailed up in coffins, nailed up in spike filled chests and rolled around, nailed to a cross, nailed to each other and left to die yeah the marquis is really into nailing things , hanged, decapitated, and eaten They are eaten alive by ravens or flies or mice or snakes or famished reptiles They die of being forced to lose their virginity to a stallion Their orifices are sewed shut Their genitals and eyeballs are popped with needles They are forced to sit astride a pickaxe in their vaginas with cannonballs tied to each foot and left there to die Their flesh is peeled from their bones and their nerve ends jerked around Their eyelids are seared with matches so they can t close them to sleep Their bodies are used as plates for hot food and cut with sharp forks and knives Their bowels are filled with boiling oil or hot irons Little girls are sewed into donkey skins which shrink and kill them My point is, this book is Saw IV on cocaine Wilder Publications, you didn t have to look hard to find something offensive in this book Why did you pick the one thing THE ONE THING ON THIS EARTH that isn t mentioned I m further confused by the fruits of a cursory Google search apparently Wilder Publications puts similar labels on many of their pre modern books, like the Constitution, or Kant s philosophy However, those labels have one slight alterationParents might wish to discuss with their children how views on race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and interpersonal relations have changed since this book etc I m sorry, you didn t think it might be a good idea to include the sexuality interpersonal relations bit here Think the 120 Days of Sodom has a politically correct take on sex human decency That s telling, Wilder That s telling.And no, it s not because the company changed their warning label policy over time the Kant book with the above label and the 120 Days of Sodom I read were both published in 2008 I DON T GET IT.Anyway, this book gets four stars not because I liked it I was terrified to turn every page but because I can t help but admire the imagination of the fucked up piece of shit who wrote this I m scarred for life, but I have to be in awe of and afraid of a human mind that can dream up so many ways to be a sick bastard However, it does get incredibly repetitive After the 150th or so page out of 370 you ve heard it all and are wholly desensitized and nothing shocks you any Despite de Sade s impressive imagination, there is an ontological limit on how many different ways you can traumatize the human body and mind, so this book would have the same effect if it were half this length I would like to thank de Sade for giving me four villains by which all other fictional villains I encounter will be compared I think the only book that ever even came close to shocking me like this was Last Exit to Brooklyn, but even that s no contest 120 Days of Sodom is the most appalling thing I ve ever read, and I m afraid I ll never be able to unread it But I m not sorry I did watching myself react to it was interesting both emotionally intellectually and physically there were many times my whole body would be tense, or I d have to curl up in the fetal position in my reading chair, or I d make the most outrageous faces, and there was a lot of actual dry heaving And also, I ll read anything once Even this You can buy this 2009

Cotton commercials and making gifted musician M Ward look bad by drowning out his beautiful voice and guitar work with her silly, shallow, ego centric love songs, she takes a liking to our charmingly squirrely hero when she realizes he s actually a brilliant architect, and that he starred on an overrated sitcom for many of his teenage years They date for 120 days, and the reader marvels at the mechanics of a short girl making a taller man look shorter than she is tall, which is not very tall at all There s one dreamy character in this mess who goes by the name of That Hot Wunderkind from CBS s Criminal Minds , used for the purposes of comedic relief and sobering insight Stuff happens, the girl feels love but not enough to accept blame for their shared Clap infection, and she marries some douchey lawyer or Investment Consultant or whatever That Hot Wunderkind understands and offers comfort to our shattered hero, even though he tried to tell him about getting too caught up in the whirlwind emotions of a girl who is inexplicably emotionally whirl wind y The heart gets known There are tears and sighs in bushels and barrels The narrative is totz pomo, all splicey and time warpy and shit This can be disorienting In the end though, it s one of those feel good, not feel good kind of books that makes you really think about what love is all about all the time, for real in the real world when it s real Was Sodom right about the non existence of love all the while, even though she actually does end up in love but not with you which kinda actually come to think of it makes
