Marquis De Sade
Birth: Jun. 2, 1740
City of Paris

Death: Dec. 2, 1814
Departement du Val-de-Marne
Île-de-France, France

Author. French writer of often violent pornography. He had a philosophy of extreme freedom unrestrained by morality, law or religion, with the pursuit of personal pleasure being the highest principle. Though never convicted of any crimes, Sade was inprisoned in various jails and in an insane asylum for twenty nine years of his life; much of his writing was done during this time. The term sadism was derived from his name. Works include: Dialogue Between a Priest and a Dying Man, The 120 Days of Sodom, Philosophy in the Bedroom and others. His will dictated that he be buried in an unmarked grave, allowed to grow wild, so that all trace of of my resting-place should disappear from the surface of the earth as I flatter myself that my memory will disappear from the minds of men (bio by: Medora)
