Writing the Orgy provides an innovative, highly persuasive interpretation of eroticism in the Marqui de Sade's writing. Combining literary theory with methodologies borrowed from anthropology, history, and psychoanalysis, the book is a brilliant feminist reading of a text-The Story of Julliete-often characterized as brutally aggressive and pornographic.
