"Frederic Soulie’s Memoirs of the Devil (1837) is a typical example [of a gothic novel], full of adultery, incest and murder, and with a climax in which the devil causes the villain’s castle to be swallowed up in an abyss." --The Misfits: A Study of Sexual Outsiders (1988) by Colin Wilson


"In human beings, sex is a response to ideas; and the faculty that responds is the imagination - which is only another name for the sense of reality - or what the psychologist Pierre Janet called ‘the reality function’. We acknowledge this when we say: ‘He lacks imagination - he has no idea how much he hurts people’, meaning that he has only a feeble sense of reality."--The Misfits: A Study of Sexual Outsiders (1988) by Colin Wilson


"Sexual Anomalies and Perversions was, in fact, compiled by Arthur Koestler, although his name does not figure on the title-page, and he never received any of the abundant royalties that the book must have earned over the years. There can be no doubt that most of its purchasers were not the judges, probation officers and educationalists envisaged by the publisher, but the kind of men who wear shabby mackintoshes and hang around playgrounds trying to peer up the skirts of schoolgirls on swings. After a few chapters describing the sexual organs and the biological foundations of sex, the book launches into the case-histories that are its real raison d’etre."--The Misfits: A Study of Sexual Outsiders (1988) by Colin Wilson

The Misfits: A Study of Sexual Outsiders (1988) is a book on human sexuality, literature and morality by Colin Wilson.

Synopsis: The history of human civilization is the history of daydreaming, escapism and imagination. The book elaborates the nature of fiction, drama and the novel in its relationship to sexual imagination and sex crimes. Wilson seeks to establish a link between crime and sexual perversion, via displacement activities.

The book contains biographies of the Marquis de Sade, D.H. Lawrence, A. C. Swinburne, James Joyce, Yukio Mishima, Henry Miller, Tillich, Koestler, Percy Grainger, Havelock Ellis, Magnus Hirschfeld, Ludwig Wittgenstein and Charlotte Bach.

On Sade

Wilson states that Marquis de Sade's philosophy was one of extreme selfishness, mentioning Sade's denial of the existence of benevolence and altruism. Wilson's portrait of Sade one of the first well-balanced around, neither villifying (as it was customary during the 19th century) nor exalting him as it was done in the 20th century (see De Beauvoir and Apollinaire).

FOUR: Romantic Agonies

FIVE: Rebel Angel

SIX: From Rebellion to Sex Crime

SEVEN: Victorian Misfits

EIGHT: Guilt and Defiance

NINE: Misfits or Mystics?
