Madame Bovary
by Gustave Flaubert

ISBN: 9781853260780
PUBLISHER: Wordsworth Editions
FORMAT: Paperback
PAGES: 320
PUBLICATION DATE: 1995


DESCRIPTION:
Presents an approach to the craft of fiction, portrayal of contemporary reality, and representation of a cast of characters focussing on Madame Bovary. This book comes with an introduction by Roger Clark, University of Kent at Canterbury. Castigated for offending against public decency, Madame Bovary has rarely failed to cause a storm. For Flaubert's contemporaries, the fascination came from the novelist's meticulous account of provincial matters. For the writer, subject matter was subordinate to his anguished quest for aesthetic perfection. For his twentieth-century successors, the formal experiments that underpin Madame Bovary look forward to the innovations of contemporary fiction.Flaubert's protagonist in particular has never ceased to fascinate. Romantic heroine or middle-class neurotic, flawed wife and mother or passionate protester against the conventions of bourgeois society, simultaneously the subject of Flaubert's admiration and the butt of his irony - Emma Bovary remains one of the most enigmatic of fictional creations.
