Overview

Madame Bovary is a novel by Gustave Flaubert, often considered his masterpiece. The novel focuses on a doctor's wife, Emma Bovary, who has adulterous affairs and lives beyond her means in order to escape the banalities and emptiness of provincial life.

Though the basic plot is rather simple, even archetypal, the novel's true art lies in its details and hidden patterns.

It now stands virtually unchallenged not only as a seminal work of Realism, but as one of the most influential novels ever written.

The work was attacked for obscenity by public prosecutors when it was first published in 1856, but the author was aquitted in 1857.

A 2007 poll of contemporary authors cited Madame Bovary as one of the two greatest novels ever written.

This is probably the worst translation of this book ever undertaken. I have purchased two books that were translations and each time abandoned them and borrowed from my library. I will never again get a book from B&N which has been translated.
