Riassunto: Sade?s Sensibilities explores how the labels of ?radical? and ?libertine? have both energized and restricted Sade studies, how readings that emphasize Sade as a historically-situated writer and thinker have rarely come into contact with those celebrating the transformative and imaginative qualities of his texts. This volume seeks to bring together work that rigorously engages Sade?s radicalism and also that resists the tendency to ostracize him from the broader historical and philosophical currents of the Enlightenment. We also still wish to allow for those accounts of Sade that see him as an anomaly, an outsider?criticism which continues to underscore the impenetrability of his texts and the ways in which his thinking transcends the long eighteenth century. Sade?s Sensibilities, then, combines readings of Sade as the consummate radical with an important counter-portrait?that supplied by historicist criticism?that sees Sade as much a product of his historical moment and its emphasis on sensibility, community, and feeling as he is its most notorious deviant. Rather than increasingly segregate these two approaches to Sade, our volume brings them into closer and more intimate conversation.
Sinossi: Sade?s Sensibilities tells a new story of one of the most enduring and controversial figures in European literature. Blending ideas about subjectivity, identity and natural philosophy with politics and pornography, D.A.F. de Sade has fascinated writers and readers for two hundred years, and his materialist account of the human condition has been widely influential in post-structuralism, nihilism, and feminism. This new collection of essays considers Sade?s Enlightenment legacy, both within and beyond the narratives of radicalism and aberration that have historically marked the study of his oeuvre. From different points of view, these essays argue that Sade engaged with and influenced traditional Enlightenment paradigms?particularly those related to sensibility, subjectivity, and philosophy?as much as he resisted them. They thus recover a Sade more relevant, even foundational to our twenty-first century understanding of modernity, selfhood, and community. In Sade?s Sensibilities Sade is no longer a solitary, peripheral radical, but an Enlightenment philosopher in his own right.
