Essay Topics

Although Sade was an atheist, do you think that he believed himself to be "god-like" or divine? What qualities did he show that would cause one to believe that Sade carried himself like a god? Or, do you believe that Sade thought himself to be simply mortal? Why?

Women have fought over Sade's writing. Angela Carter ("The Sadeian Woman: And the Ideology of Pornography" (1979)) believed Sade to be a "moral pornographer." Andrea Dworkin ("Pornography: Men Possessing Women" (1979)) saw Sade as the model of the "woman-hating pornographer." With whom do you agree? Did Sade hate women, or did he create a "special place" for women in the lives of men?

Given that all of the characters in "120 Days of Sodom" were at least 45 years of age, do you believe their "crimes" to be more horrendous than if they were younger men? Sade was 45 years old when "The 120 Days of Sodom" was published. Do you believe that Sade gave them all ages close to his own because the text paralleled his own life? Do you think that you would feel differently about the actions in the text if the men were younger and more "prone" to sexually deviant behaviors?
