Justine: Good Conduct Well Chastised.

Justine: Good Conduct Well Chastised. Justine was an early work of the Marquis de Sade, written while imprisoned in the Bastille. It contains relatively little of the obscenity which characterized his later writing. Will they not add, that it makes no difference to the general plan whether such-and-such a one is by preference good or bad, that if misery persecutes virtue and prosperity accompanies crime, those things being as one in Nature’s view, far better to join company with the wicked who flourish, than to be counted amongst the virtuous who founder?

Donatien Alphonse François de Sade, best known as the Marquis de Sade, was a French aristocrat, revolutionary and author of philosophical and sadomasochistic novels exploring such controversial subjects as rape, bestiality and necrophilia. His works evidence a philosophical mind advocating a materialist philosophy in which Nature dictates absolute freedom, unrestrained by morality, religion or law, with the pursuit of personal pleasure as its foremost principle.

An authority on Sade, his books include Sade: The Libertine Novels, The Marquis de Sade: A Very Short Introduction, and How to Read Sade. I have read both 'Justine, or Good Conduct Well-Chastised' (Justine, Philosophy in the Bedroom, and Other Writings) and this one. Both excellent translations, however 'or the Misfortunes of Virtue' (Oxford Classics) is in my opinion the superior translation. It is eloquently written and reads beautifully.

Among de Sade’s best known works are the erotic novels Justine, or Good Conduct Well Chastised, Juliette, or Vice Amply Rewarded, and The 120 Days of Sodom. Although an elected delegate to the National Convention during the French Revolution, de Sade was regularly incarcerated because of his lasciviousness, spending approximately 32 years in prison or in an insane asylum. He died in the asylum at Charenton in 1814. De Sade’s life is depicted in the 2000 film Quills starting Geoffrey Rush, Kate Winslet and Joaquin Phoenix.

Justine was an early work of the Marquis de Sade, written while imprisoned in the Bastille. It contains relatively little of the obscenity which characterized his later writing. Napoleon Bonaparte called Justine "the most abominable book ever engendered by the most depraved imagination." Bonaparte ordered the arrest of Sade who as a result was incarcerated for the last 13 years of his life. Justine is set just before the French Revolution in France and tells the story of a young woman who goes under the name of Therese. Her story is recounted to Madame de Lorsagne while defending herself for her crimes, en route to punishment and death. She explains the series of misfortunes which have led her to be in her present situation. Classic erotic fiction.

I have to say that I was disappointed. Probably because I had first read DeSade's 120 days of Sodom and Juliette first. Justine is the younger sister of Juliette and while Juliette is 1200 pages long, this one is like 190. Being so long, Juliette went into very minute detail of her travels and sexual exploits while in Justine, it was very vague and didn't provide much detail. It would have been better had it been more like Juliette, basically a mirror image of that book with the exception of one becomes a very successful libertine while the other suffers while trying desperately to cling to virtue. Being so short, the book just goes from one unfortunate situation to the other for poor Justine which unfortunately makes the story too unbelievable. How much bad luck can one person honestly have?? I read Justine in one sitting and found the book rather boring. Lacking the shock value and explicit sex that just didn't seem to do DeSade justice.

I have no issues with the book itself or the subject matter. I actually rather enjoy delving into the world of the Marquis de Sade and trying to better understand him; he might have been a somewhat disturbing man to some people but he was nothing if not interesting.

However the kindle format of this book was completely messed up. There are no paragraphs and absolutely terrible editing and punctuation which made this book nearly impossible to read.

You ever buy a classic book because it's all about sex and then it turns out it's about a girl getting assaulted over and over by priests and the only reason they don't call it assault is because the book was written before the phrase 'sexual assault' entered the lexicon? That's what happened to me with Justine.

And also Clifford the Big Red Dog, but that's more about my personal hangups.

If you can look beyond the horrors of this book,  there are interesting facets, I believe.  The author's brazen justification  of the debauchery by stating repeatedly that nature deemed it so became, although never convincing, almost rational. The gem in the read, however, I think, was the irony between the sisters in the end.  Not for the feint-hearted or closed-minded.

Very disturbing and disgusting - be warned. I read this for research into the minds of malicious, narcissistic, sadistic people. The Marquis must have been one scary dude. Justine, sadly, reminded me of my younger, more naive self. Here are lessons to be learned from this book.

Warning: If you like to be a prude, do NOT read it! If you are a libertine, you'll love it. If you are open to new ideas, you should read it. I read first the Italian translation, then the original French version and the English translation.
The Marquis de Sade's first novel, Justine, shows the battle of virtue versus vice... and a lot of perversions and sadism.

We have to situate this book in the time when it has first appeared. It must have been a great shock for the society, when the Marquis wrote this book, criticizing the established "noblesse", the rich and the highest religious ranks. Many situations are very graphic, while most are not politically correct. I recommend to all that want to understand mankind, behavior, sexuality and literature.
This is the story of a virtuous, and pretty, young woman who repeatedly falls prey to lecherous libertines. Over the course of the story, she is victimized by aristocrats, monks, and outlaws. The lead goes by the name Therese, though her given name was Justine. She is one of two sisters orphaned after their father ran afoul of a man by having an affair with said man’s wife. The story is set in France immediately before the Revolution, as it was written while de Sade was imprisoned in the Bastille in 1787.

As Therese is telling her tale of woe on the eve of her trial for murder and arson, one might question whether she is an unreliable narrator. In other words, was she as morally upright and steadfastly pious as she portrays, and were her sufferings truly through no fault of her own [beyond naïveté.] That level of complexity is beyond de Sade’s simple formulation. The lesson of his amorality tale is that Therese ends up in such a mess precisely because (by being so virtuous and pious) she fails to comply with what de Sade saw as the law of nature. His version of the law of nature is defined by the strong lording over the weak, and the ideal of “do unto others, before they can do unto you.”

What is the evidence for de Sade’s twisted amoral moral to the story? First, he includes a sister, Juliette, who follows the path of least resistance (accepting a life of vice) and ends up much better off. Second, all of the “villains” (though de Sade didn’t see them that way, I’m certain) are prone to Bond Villainesque exposition on this philosophy as justification for the vile acts they are perpetrating. This ham-handed approach can make for an annoying read. [However, if one is interested in the minutiae of the philosophy of libertinage, one may find some of the arguments interesting. While de Sade’s philosophy is rank and vile, it may have just been a wild pendulum swing from what was going on in the mainstream world at the time.]

While I certainly wouldn’t recommend the book as a treatise on ethics, morality, or philosophy, it’s an interesting story. I’ve only read one other book by this author (i.e. “120 Days of Sodom”) and can say that “Justine” is vastly better than that one.

I’d recommend it for those intrigued by the occasional amorality tale. It can’t be said to lack tension. Needless to say, it’s graphic in places, and not for readers of delicate sensibilities.
