Description
When, as a young man in postwar Paris, Octavio Paz first encountered the writings of the Marquis de Sade, his initial reaction was one of "astonishment and horror, curiosity and disgust, admiration and recognition."

In an early poem and two subsequent essays written over a span of five decades, Paz pierces through the narrow image of Sade as pornographer and examines his work in the context of the paradox of human freedom and civilized man. He insists that Sade is worth reading, that "the danger lies not in his books but in the passions of his readers."

Exuberantly life-affirming, An Erotic Beyond: Sade is philosophy of the first order, with an admixture of authority and irreverence that will surely provoke conversation and debate.
