Holland17 are separated into two distinct strands in Deleuze's recently rereleased work on masochism, "Coldness and Cruelty. In the first two sections I will focus, as Deleuze does, primarily on traditional texts and the literary works of Sade and Sacher-Masoch, and so will recapitulate the usual male, abstract focus of these discussions, albeit with a critical eye. But I am convinced that theory is not an innocent player in this story and so the story cannot be untold without a theoretical exorcism of theory itself.

In "The Sexual Aberrations" in Three Essays on the Theory ofSexuality , Freud notes that a distinction can be made in theory between "algolagnia," which refers to taking pleasure from pain one's own or another's , on the one hand, and sadism and masochism, which also involve elements of subjection and humiliation, on the other. He then traces sadism back to the innate aggressiveness of male sexuality "a desire to subjugate" and "the need for overcoming the resistance of the sexual object [i.

He also notes that a "violent attitude to the sexual object [i. Since it is in some sense "natural," sadism is the primary phenomenon , with masochism a secondary perversion in which sadism is, for several, generally Oedipal, reasons turned around on oneself.

What especially intrigues Freud at this point in his thinking is the traditional belief that sado-masochism is a single phenomenon in Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide.

Perversion in Masochism: Coldness and Cruelty

To understand the way Deleuze thinks about perversion is to understand the specificity he sees in masochism—its difference from sadism. It is to understand how he reads Masoch from the critical point of view, showing that Masoch takes the phantasm as a genuine double of the world and how literature therefore arises as its ideal realisation. Sade creates a literature of reason, of the cold thought where rigorous demonstrations show that reasoning itself is violence, that demonstration itself is violence. Obscene descriptions give the sadistic the power of showing themselves apathetically all-powerful. Masoch is the inventor of the phantasm, the author of the imagination that multiplies the denials as a proceeding of his art of suspense. He proceeds by multiplication of the denial as an ascending path towards the intelligible.

Masochism: Coldness and Cruelty & Venus in Furs

Distributed for Zone Books. In his stunning essay, Coldness and Cruelty, Gilles Deleuze provides a rigorous and informed philosophical examination of the work of the late 19th-century German novelist Leopold von Sacher-Masoch. Deleuze's essay, certainly the most profound study yet produced on the relations between sadism and masochism, seeks to develop and explain Masoch's "peculiar way of 'desexualizing' love while at the same time sexualizing the entire history of humanity. Venus in Furs, the most famous of all of Masoch's novels was written in and belongs to an unfinished cycle of works that Masoch entitled The Heritage of Cain. The cycle was to treat a series of themes including love, war, and death.

In the Foreword Deleuze states that Masoch has a particular way of "desexualising love while at the same time sexualizing the entire history of humanity". Deleuze attempts to "cut through" the various forms of expression and content that are the artistic creation of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch. He also attempts to develop a problematic of masochism in contradistinction to sadism, concluding that the two forms of 'pornology' are non-communicating, and cannot be integrated into Sadomasochistic entity. Deleuze argues that Masochism is something far more subtle and complex than the enjoyment of pain and that Masochism has nothing to do with Sadism.
