50 quotes from Octave Mirbeau: 'You're obliged to pretend respect for people and institutions you think absurd. You live attached in a cowardly fashion to moral and social conventions you despise, condemn, and know lack all foundation. It is that permanent contradiction between your ideas and desires and all the dead formalities and vain pretenses of your civilization which makes you sad, troubled and unbalanced. You're obliged to pretend respect for people and institutions you think absurd.

Octave Mirbeau was a popular writer of his day, with a wide ranging scope of interest. He wrote in many literary genres, sometimes, as in the case of this book, combining the real and the fantastical, with views on politics and human nature that were satirical, subversive to conventional morality and even anarchistic. The intellectual backdrop is this - Mirbeau publishes Torture Garden in 1899 after Nietzsche had completed his works, and just as Freud was starting to publish his work (Interpretation of Dreams is published in 1900). In 1899 the Dreyfus case was still in progress in France, and provides a backdrop for the book.

There are satirical and allegorical dimensions, but it remains irreducibly horrible.

The scientist settled himself once more among the cushions of his armchair, stretched his legs, which were numb from being crossed too long and, his head thrown back, his arms hanging and his stomach soothed by good digestion, puffed smoke−rings at the ceiling: Besides, he continued, murder is largely self−propagating.

Read Torture Garden, by Octave Mirbeau online on Bookmate – Clara goes to China where she experiences the delights of the torture garden. Baroque sadism mioxed up with political satire. A century after its first publication, this book is still capable of shocking. The opening satire is probably meaningful only to scholars of French political history, but the subsequent journey into the Far East accentuates connections between love and death, sex and depravity, fastidiousness and pleasure. And the petty, parochial corruptions of the narrator are put into context by the immersion into the Sadeian world of the Torture Garden.
