Marquis de Sade-120 Days of Sodom

  • Les Madeleines

    216 East 500 South, Salt Lake City, UT (map)

    40.758099 -111.884758

  • The worms will be discussing the 120 Days of Sodom by the Marquis de Sade.

    ***Warning-Novel is graphic, sexual explicit, and contains extremely dark themes***

    The 120 Days of Sodom is set in a remote medieval castle, high in the mountains and surrounded by forests, detached from the rest of the world, either at the end of Louis XIV's reign or at the beginning of the Regence.

    The novel takes place over five months, November to March. Four wealthy libertines lock themselves in a castle, the Château de Silling, along with a number of victims and accomplices. (The description of Silling matches Sade's own castle, the Chateau de Lacoste) Since they state that the sensations produced by the organs of hearing are the most erotic, they intend to listen to various tales of depravity from four veteran prostitutes, which will inspire them to engage in similar activities with their victims.

    November: the simple passions

    December: the complex passions

    January: the criminal passions

    February: the murderous passions 

    March: disposal of remaining characters
