    Description

    In this seminal work of realism that has been described by critics as the perfect work of fiction, Gustave Flaubert masterfully describes the whims and fancies of one Emma Bovary as she strives to get the best of two very different worlds.

    Summary Of The Book

    Emma Bovary is married to Charles Bovary, a health officer with simple tastes and no lofty ambitions. Mrs Bovary, on the other hand nurtures highly romanticized views about life, and craves wealth, beauty, passion, and the high society. But unfortunately for her, life in the countryside does little to fulfill her lofty ambitions, nor does her husband with his simple and easy going demeanor aid her cause.

    As she quickly grows disenchanted with both her married life and her preconceived notions and fantasies, Mrs Bovary resorts to adultery right under her husband’s nose who suspects nothing and frivolous spending without his knowledge in a desperate bid to restore parity into her miserable life.

    In what may appear to be a simple enough plot, Gustave Flaubert manages to immortalize his legacy in the annals of European literature through his painstaking attempt to render every object in flawless details on paper. Gustave Flaubert was a perfectionist, and was forever in search for ‘the precise word’.

    In Madame Bovary - Gustave Flaubert, Gustave Flaubert has created the ultimate tragic heroine in fictional literature, as she continues to agonise countless readers with the misery that she brings upon herself and everyone around her.

    Madame Bovary - Gustave Flaubert was first published as a single volume in 1857, when it instantly became a bestseller. It has been adapted countless times over the years, in different art forms like movies, television series, musical theatre, etc. A few notable examples include the 1949 film produced by MGM., directed by Vincente Minnelli, and composer Anne Freier‘s theatre adaptation entitled The Bovary Tale.

    A Student's Edition

    Gustave Flaubert is a giant of a writer and his literature deserves attention by a student of literature irrespective of the language he is involved in. I appreciate Rupa's effort in bringing out an English translation priced at just Rs.80, essentially for the student and not the specialist.

    Madame Bovary is the best known of Flaubert's work because it has a sensational history. The theme dealt with is that of sin and redemption in 19th Century France, the story of the eponymous heroine Emma...

    A slow read but a beautiful emotional narrative.

    A (excessively) descriptive narration with an emotional depiction of a woman's psychology that makes her constantly chase happiness believing it to be an absolute. Not a book one would fall in love with but it will certainly leave certain sadness and hopelessness behind. Haunting.
