Abstract

This article argues that sexuality and madness are power metaphors that can be used as political tools. Based on Michel Foucault’s concepts of normality, abnormality, power, sexuality and madness, it proves that in “Quills”, sexuality can be manipulated to criticize the authority, while madness can be used by the authority to oppress those who have such critical attitude. In the movie, the Marquis de Sade uses his stories about perverted sexual activities conducted by upper-class people to criticize the authority. Meanwhile, Napoleon and his associates use madness to oppress anybody who dares to rebel against their power.
