Synopsis

Taken from Juliette, the Marquis de Sade's epic of vice, the episode of MINSKIˆTHEˆCANNIBAL is one of the most horrific and depraved in all of the author's canon. Whilst venturing in remote mountains, Juliette and her companions are accosted by Minski, a giant who devours human flesh, and taken to his castle. There they witness obscene rites of sexual carnage, played out in a subterranean slaughterhouse for human cattle. This special ebook edition of MINSKI THEˆCANNIBAL also includes an illuminating essay by Sade scholar Maurice Heine - newly translated into English for the first time - on Sade as progenitor of the gothic novel.
 

About The Marquis De Sade

See more books from this Author
Donatien Alphonse Fran ois, Marquis de Sade, was a French aristocrat and writer who was notorious for his immoral lifestyle, and whose name provided the basis for the modern terms “sadism” and “sadist”. Among de Sade’s best known works are the erotic novels Justine, or Good Conduct Well Chastised, Juliette, or Vice Amply Rewarded, and The 120 Days of Sodom. Although an elected delegate to the National Convention during the French Revolution, de Sade was regularly incarcerated because of his lasciviousness, spending approximately 32 years in prison or in an insane asylum. He died in the asylum at Charenton in 1814. De Sade’s life is depicted in the 2000 film Quills starting Geoffrey Rush, Kate Winslet and Joaquin Phoenix.
