How to use "De sade" in context?

When most people think about the infamous French philosopher and writer, Marquis De Sade, they probably think about the things he wrote that include sexual activities between consenting adults, rape, and even violence. But beyond all of that is the man himself, someone who was quite shy and socially withdrawn in his everyday life.

Born in 1740, De Sade was the eldest of 11 children. His father died when he was quite young, which may have led to his shyness and social withdrawal. After his father's death, De Sade was raised by an aunt and uncle and he appears to have had a fairly happy childhood.
