'Justine' was the Marquis de Sade's first novella, written in 1787, whilst imprisoned for two weeks in the Bastille.

Capisco che appena pubblicato debba aver fatto sbiancare chissà quante signore per bene, ma passata l'impressione iniziale si rivela esagerato, noioso, e ripetitivo. ( )

Les Infortunes de la vertu est un conte philosophique de Sade, écrit en 1787. L'ouvrage est écrit entre le 23 juin et le 8 juillet 1787, alors que Sade est emprisonné à la Bastille. Justine ou les Malheurs de la vertu, publiée en 1791, est la seconde version de cette histoire, qui sera elle-même suivie d'une troisième version, La Nouvelle Justine ou les Malheurs de la vertu, publiée en 1799. Le prénom de l'héroïne, Justine, est celui qui avait été donné à Catherine Trillet, domestique au château de La Coste en 1776. Le manuscrit des Infortunes de la vertu a été mis au jour en 1909 par Guillaume Apollinaire et a été publié pour la première fois en 1930.

The most interesting part of the book was the descriptions of libertinism.
I had heared of it, but listening to this book, I searched it to learn more.

The rest I didn't like at all. I hadn't expected for De Sade is famous for the explicit contents of his books.
Happy to be able to cross this one off the list. ( )

Audacious pornography homeopathically diluted with pseudo-philosophical, worse, pseudo-theological discourse, mostly uttered obviously by de Sade himself operating the mouth of his heroes, with such consequences as a girl of about 16 calling another of about 20 "mon enfant" while expanding with pathos on the libertinage of her father.

Should either contain margin marks pointing to action, or be reduced drastically. As of now, utterly unreadable.

And, by the way, as far as I can see, absolutely worthless as a work of literature. ( )

Justine and Juliette were sisters and the daughters of a banker who died and left them in bankrupcy, they were thrown out of the nunery were they were staying, Juliette did well working as prostitute and Justine went to work with an usurer who ask her to steal for him, when she said no, the usurer acused her of a thef she didn't commit, she managed to escape jail but that was just the begining of her pains

How can a girl be so dull-witted as to believe that virtue may depend upon the somewhat greater or lesser diameter of one of her physical parts?
