Fictional dialogue between Marta Segarra and Simone de Beauvoir about Sade

Marta Segarra, Professor of French Literature and Gender Studies at the University of Barcelona, talks with feminist thinker Simone de Beauvoir, based on a selection of texts that the French philosopher and author wrote about Sade’s work. Beauvoir was one of the 20th-century intellectuals who highlighted the importance of Sade’s work, which, despite the violence it contains, promotes the figure of the libertine woman and female sexual pleasure apart from reproductive functions.
