Sade's theatre : pleasure, vision, masochism.

Wynn, Thomas (2007) 'Sade's theatre : pleasure, vision, masochism.', Oxford: Voltaire Foundation. Studies on Voltaire and the eighteenth century., 2007 (2).


This first full-length study in English to examine the marquis de Sade’s theatre will be of interest to all those working in eighteenth-century drama and theory of spectatorship. Attentive to eighteenth-century dramatic theory and practice, this book also borrows from psychoanalysis and film theory to argue that his plays offer a model of visual pleasure that is masochistic in nature.
