By Marquis de Sade
Le expertise de Sade conteur ne s’est pas seulement exprimé dans Les Crimes de l’amour, mais aussi dans une cinquantaine de nouvelles, d’historiettes et de fabliaux méticuleusement recensés par un « catalogue raisonné » que le Divin Marquis établit durant son incarcération à l. a. Bastille, de 1786 à 1788. Cette half de son œuvre dessine un continent méconnu, qui est l. a. face officielle, mais non moins licencieuse, d’un débauché soucieux de son picture d’« homme de lettres ».
Occultés par l. a. réputation scandaleuse de leur auteur et los angeles fascination exercée par sa creation clandestine, ces contes dévoilent une autre écriture : variée et nerveuse, entrelaçant gravité et plaisanterie, elle témoigne d’une grande maîtrise de l. a. concision.
De ces recueils mixtes, que Sade n’eut pas le temps de publier, le présent quantity cherche pour l. a. première fois à donner une idée. L’homme de lettres s’y révèle libertin… mais autrement.
