Marquis de Sade - Les crimes de l'amour artwork Les crimes de l'amour
Marquis de Sade
Genre: Crime & Thrillers
Publish Date: 01 December 1814
Publisher: Public Domain
Seller: Public Domain

Le trop célèbre de Sade, premier marquis de France et issu d'une des plus anciennes maisons nobles de l'Europe, est universellement connu pour ses débauches. Tout le monde lettré a entendu parler plus ou moins de ses écrits, mais peu de personnes les connaissent. Cette grande célébrité le fait rechercher dans les bibliothèques, où il a sa place marquée comme originalité; mais ses écrits le rendent presque impossible, car le triste sire n'avait guère d'autre esprit que la monomanie érotico-criminelle. Justine et Juliette, la Philosophie dans le boudoir, Aline et Valcourt, sont des œuvres souillées d'images obscènes et meurtrières, qui répugnent tellement à la lecture que, peut-être, personne ne les a lues en entier. Le style en est détestable, car si l'auteur était fou, il n'était pas littéraire. Zoloé, l'Auteur des Crimes de l'Amour à Villeterque, les Crimes de l'Amour, et autres productions analogues ne sont que de plates satires, ou de mauvaises nouvelles, sans intérêt. En publiant ici une Nouvelle tirée des Crimes de l'Amour, le pamphlet contre Villeterque, l'Étude sur les romans, et la Notice sur Sade et ses écrits, les bibliophiles ont l'avantage d'avoir un spécimen des ouvrages de cet érotomane, et ils peuvent ainsi se dispenser d'acquérir ses autres œuvres.

L'argent des autres (paru pour la première fois en 1874, un an après la mort de l'auteur) est un roman d'une troublante actualité sur les tentations et les effets pervers de la spéculation et de l'argent facile. Ecrit en marge d'oeuvres plus célèbres mettant en scène l'agent de sûreté Lecoq, ce roman d'aventures, d'amour et de moeurs possède toutes les qualités du roman-feuilleton à suspense dont Gaboriau est l'un des maîtres absolus.

Boasting some of Sherlock Holmes's finest adventures, this classic 1894 collection was originally written in serial form. Eleven of the most popular tales of the immortal sleuth include "Silver Blaze," concerning the "curious incident of the dog in the night-time"; "The Greek Interpreter," starring Holmes's even more formidable brother, Mycroft; and "The Final Problem," the detective's notorious confrontation with arch-criminal Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls. Holmes and Dr. Watson remain history's greatest detective team, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's portrayals of male comradeship, the thrills of the chase, and the misty precincts of Victorian London remains unmatched in detective literature.

Once again Mr Sherlock Holmes is free to devote his life to examining those interesting little problems which the complex life of London so plentifully presents'. Evil masterminds beware! Sherlock Holmes is back! Ten years after his supposed death in the swirling torrent of the Reichenbach Falls locked in the arms of his arch enemy Professor Moriarty, Arthur Conan Doyle agreed to pen further adventures featuring his brilliant detective. In the first story, 'The Empty House', Holmes returns to Baker Street and his good friend Watson, explaining how he escaped from his watery grave. In creating this collection of tales, Doyle had lost none of his cunning or panache, providing Holmes with a sparkling set of mysteries to solve and a challenging set of adversaries to defeat. The potent mixture includes murder, abduction, baffling cryptograms and robbery. We are also introduced to the one of the cruellest villains in the Holmes canon, the despicable Charles Augustus Milverton. As before, Watson is the superb narrator and the magic remains unchanged and undimmed.

La Fabrique de crimes est une parodie des codes du roman populaire et du roman noir dans laquelle Féval épingle à la fois son propre style et celui de ses contemporains avec un humour délicieux et un rare talent de conteur. Tout y est excessif : le nombre de meurtres, les actions, les complots, les vices, les émotions… Les phrases sont celles d'un grand écrivain, il faut avoir énormément écrit, et bien, pour pouvoir se permettre une telle aisance dans la comparaison, dans l'invention.

Elles débitèrent leur histoire par strophe et antistrophe, comme un ch?ur grec, Jeanne parlant jusqu'à ce que l'haleine lui manquât, et laissant alors la parole à la cuisinière qui se voyait à son tour interrompue. Une bonne partie de ce qu'elles dirent resta à peu près inintelligible pour moi, à raison du dialecte extraordinaire qu'elles employaient, mais je pus saisir la marche générale de leur récit.

Les Mystères de Paris est un roman français publié en feuilletons par Eugène Sue dans Le Journal des Débats entre le 19 juin 1842 et le 15 octobre 1843. Les Mystères de Paris relèvent du feuilleton, comme La Cousine Bette, comme Splendeurs et misères des courtisanes, chefs-d'oeuvre de Balzac, comme tout Dumas et presque tout Sand ; et, comme Hugo dans Les Misérables. Sue donne à son feuilleton une extraordinaire dimension dans le noir. Le mélo est là, assurément. Et colossal, coupant le souffle avec la brutalité en noir et blanc de ses éclairages violents, avec ses héros campés sans ambiguïté dans la noblesse ou dans l'atroce ; avec surtout, puisqu'il s'agit de Paris et de ses mystères, un extraordinaire décor posant la cité moderne comme un personnage épique : ville-foule, ville-château bâtie sur un monde d'entrailles souterraines, caves-caveaux, égouts, couloirs ; ville-cancer qui attire et qui dévore, use, corrompt, ouvrant à la fois toutes les avenues du pouvoir et tous les chemins de la perdition. Le monumental triomphe de ce roman nous confond encore aujourd'hui.

This is a crime story book. There with al the damsel rose briskly and putting off her clothes, washed and donned sumptuous apparel and perfumed herself and went out to him, as she were a willow-wand or a bamboo-cane, followed by a black slave girl, bearing the lute. When she came to the young man, she saluted him and sat down by his side. Then she took the lute from the slave-girl and tuning it, smote thereon in four-and-twenty modes, after which she returned to the first mode and sang the following verses: Unto me the world's whole gladness is thy nearness and thy sight; All incumbent thy possession and thy love a law of right.
