Summary

The Wordsworth Erotica Collection includes some of
 
the finest Victorian and Edwardian examples of the genre.
 
 
About this book:
 
 
Justine, the most celebrated
 
of the novels of the Marquis de Sade, was written in three versions. This
 
translation is taken from the first version- and unlike the other two is a gem
 
of eighteenth century literature. Widely execrated by de Sade's contemporaries and
 
by modern Mrs Grundys, it is an innovative novel of considerable novel of
 
considerable depth and psychological insight.
 
 
Deserted by her father on his bankruptcy, and the
 
subsequent death of her mother, the virtuous Justine is thrown onto her own resources.
 
As she makes her way in the world she is subjected to the most frightful
 
humiliations- flogging, rape and forced labour, which lead her to believe that
 
virtue is not its own reward.
