The story begins with a philosophical discussion about the role of murder in society. Many of the ideas are confronting and unpopular, but potent with the horrible truth of human nature behind them. The writer, Octave Mirbeau, (an atheist and anarchist) constantly challenges the reader through out the novel - with his scathing view of humanity, the hypocrisy, corruption, evil of the world and human condition. He explores the dual nature of life - love is death, beauty is pain, and torture is ecstasy.
This is the twisted tale of a young Frenchman (a corrupted politician) who meets the beautiful (on the outside) aristocratic Clara, who invites him to China. Clara has a fetishistic desire of death and torture - she sees it as beautiful and wildly sexually arousing. She seduces the Frenchman with her wicked enchanting web and takes him to the Torture Garden. This is an unreal place of beauty and death, which grows amazing exotic flowers in soil fertile from the blood and bones of the executed. The man wants to leave but is too weak, he is captivated by Clara's physical beauty but is sickened her dark nature. He begins to see the 'civilised' world as a thinly disguised veil of the Torture Garden (thus the garden serves as an allegory to the brutal, cruel tendencies of humanity and corrupt decay of the modern world).

FROM THE BOOK:
"A light flashed in her green pupils, and in a low, almost raucous voice, she said: 'I'll teach you terrible things... divine things... you'll know at last what love really is! I promise you'll descend with me to the very depths of the mystery of love... and death!' And smiling an evil smile which made a shiver run through my bones, she said again: 'Poor baby! You thought yourself a great debauchee... a great rebel! Ah! your little remorse... do you remember! And now your soul is as timid as a little child's!'
.. The smells that arose from the crowd - smells of the latrine and the slaughterhouse, the stink of corpses and the perfumes of living flesh - nauseated me and chilled me to the marrow. .. She was unrestrained and delighted in the midst of this crowd whose odor she inhaled, and to whose repugnant embraces she submitted with a sort of swooning lust. She offered her body - all her lithe and vibrant body - to the brutality, the blows, and the clawing. Her white skin was now a glowing pink; her eyes reflected a languid thrill of sensual delight; her lips were swollen, like firm buds ready to blossom."
