Sade, the Invention of the Libertine Body

By Marcel Hénaff; Xavier Callahan | Go to book overview

Translator's Note

If translation itself is a labor of love, the careful vetting of another's translation is a work of pure agape. I am deeply grateful to Jean-Louis Morhange, the soul of tact, for putting his phenomenal command of both French and English at the disposal of this volume and gently interrupting more than one lexical pratfall.

Mikkel and Charlotte Borch-Jacobsen's friendship and Rabelaisian zest were an unfailing source of strength and encouragement. Pamm Hanson offered material support during an early phase of the work and moral support throughout. Diane Thurlow's steady, unobtrusive presence was sometimes literally all that allowed the work to continue. The four of them, as well as my former Stanford colleagues Nathan MacBrien, who generously stepped in with bibliographical help at a critical moment, and Jan Spauschus Johnson, who was often and graciously there to lend an ear, have my warm and enduring thanks.

Thanks are also due to Douglas Brick, for being too busy himself to undertake this translation; to Biodun Iginla, who proposed that I take it on instead; and to William Murphy of the University of Minnesota Press, for his ingenuity and good humor. Also at Minnesota, I wish to thank Gretchen Asmussen and Laura Westlund, as well as this edition's copy editor, David Thorstad, and Daniel Leary, the book's production coordinator.

Most of all, I am grateful to the author, Marcel Hénaff, not just for writing this book but for being so thoroughly kind and patient through disruptions and delays that no one could have foreseen when the translation into English was begun.
