    One thought on “An Erotic Beyond: Sade”

    1. This was a really nice (and quick) read. Weighing in at a mere 84 small (3" x 5" sheets) pages, these essays are filled with ideas that scour the nooks and crannies of desire in a rich, poetic language.

    2. Did I really give a book about the Marquis de Sade five stars? Yes I did. I'll probably even read it again.I am now obliged to hunt down everything Octavio Paz has written. His writing is phenomenal. His essay on de Sade was both intellectually stimulating and beautiful.

    3. Little book filled with insights. Paz is a great poet and brings a poetic insight to his philosophy. Highly recommended for students of D.A.F. de Sade.
