Inhoud

Story of O - notorious as an underground novel, remarkable as a rare instance of pornography sublimed to purest art - appeared first under mysterious circumstances at Paris in 1954... Story of O is neither a fantasy nor a case history. With its alternate beginnings and endings, its simple direct style (like that of a fable); its curious air of abstraction, of indepencence from time, place and personality, what it resembles most is a legend - the spiritual history of a saint and martyr... Commencing with the simplest of situations, the story gradually opens out into a Daedalian maze of perverse relationships - a clandestine society of sinister formality and elegance where the primary bond is mutual complicity in dedication to the pleasure of sadisme and masochisme... -New York Times Book Review
With an essay by Jean Paulhan of the Académie Française - A Slave's Revolt: An essay on the Story of O.
Story of O - now a sensational film by Just Jaeckin, director of Emmanuelle, starring Corinne Clery, Anthony Steel, Udo Kier and Jean Gaven.
