Sade: Queer Theorist

Dublin Core

Description

Examines Sade's multifaceted depiction of sexual desire, gender and biological sex and links this representation to queer theories which help better understand Sade's denial of binary representations of sexuality. The polyphonic definitions of "nature" during the period of the Enlightenment allowed Sade to bypass christian morality and justify any sexual act, behavior, and physical constitution as "natural".
