Aline and Valcour, Vol. Marquis de Sade. Unlike Days of Sodom, the famous scroll that lay concealed in his cell as he wrote, while not pornographic, Aline and Valcour embodies the multiple themes and ideas that would become the hallmark of Sade's far more sulfurous Juliette and Philosophy in the Bedroom.

Ostensibly an epistolary novel, Aline and Valcour actually combines genres, interweaving the adventure story, libertine novel, and the novel of feelings out of which emerges a unitary tale enlivened by complex and carefully nuanced characters.

Turbulence and turpitude disrupt good peoples' lives as libertines work evil schemes and incestuous designs upon the innocent and devout and they don't stop with abduction and seduction; its protagonists face obstacles to love and harsh threats imposed by crime upon traditional morality and religion.

Sade infuses his novel with a sort of philosophical anthropology that prefigures not just Karl Marx and the 19th century utopian socialists, but Claude Levi-Strauss and Michel Foucault. Dark humor and social satire echo throughout. Sade's inspirations for Aline and Valcour, which signal his ambition for what he subtitled "the philosophical novel," include an array of novels in addition to Richardson's epistolary Pamela, Rousseau's best-selling Julie, Laclos' Les liaisons dangereuses, Gulliver's Travels, and Don Quixote.

Aline and Valcour also owes a special debt to the an ancient Roman poet Lucretius, whose Epicurean and materialist philosophy lends it a contemporary feel wholly missing from many 18th century novels.

Although not sexually explicit, Aline and Valcour shared the fate of Sade's other works - banned in , in it was entered onto the French government's list of prohibited works.

It did not appear in bookstores until after WWII, when Jean-Jacques Pauvert undertook publication of a new edition of Sade's works and eventually succeeded in overcoming more than a century of censorship.

This is the very first rendering of the book into English since its publication in "--Publisher's website.

Book Launch: Sade's Aline & Valcour

Aline and Valcour is a neglected masterpiece of world literature, a novel composed by the Marquis de Sade while he was imprisoned in the Bastille and later published, in , in the wake of the still-smoldering French Revolution. Until now only a few pages have been translated into Engish. Rarely pedestrian, Sade is often philosophical and chooses florid phrasing, but we have been surprised—as others must have been—at how readily his sentences, once deconstructed, resolve into English. His characters have considerable emotional range for a novel of the 18th century, but at the same time Sade often undercuts their professed moral sentiments with understated glee and irony.

Though originally published in , Aline and Valcour is the last of de Sade's major works to appear in English -- in part, no doubt, because it is not as obsessively and excessively sexually graphic as much of his fiction.
