MADAME BOVARY (Edition NOOK Spéciale Version Française) Gustave Flaubert | Madame Bovary (French Language Version) by Gustave Flaubert [Gustave Flaubert Complete Works Collection / Oeuvres Complètes de Gustave Flaubert] NOOKbook]

«Il ne faut pas toucher aux idoles, la dorure en reste aux mains.»

Madame Bovary est un roman de Gustave Flaubert paru en 1857 dont le titre original est Madame Bovary, mœurs de province. Le roman connaîtra un important succès dans le monde littéraire.

«M. Flaubert a su faire un très beau livre. Il s'abstient du juger. Cela est tout à fait permis à qui met le lecteur à même d'être bon juge.» George Sand, Le Courrier de Paris. 2 septembre 1857

«On dit que madame Bovary est ridicule. En effet, la voilà, tantôt prenant pour un héros de Walter Scott une espèce de monsieur, - dirais-je même un gentilhomme campagnard? - vêtu de gilets de chasse et de toilettes contrastées! et maintenant, la voici amoureuse d'un petit clerc de notaire (qui ne sait même pas commettre une action dangereuse pour sa maîtresse), et finalement la pauvre épuisée, la bizarre Pasiphaé, reléguée dans l'étroite enceinte d'un village, poursuit l'idéal à travers les bastringues et les estaminets de la préfecture: - qu'importe ? disons-le, avouons-le, c'est un César à Carpentras; elle poursuit l'Idéal !» Charles Baudelaire, Article paru dans L'Artiste, 18 Octobre 1857

----------

Madame Bovary (1856) is Gustave Flaubert's first published novel and is considered his masterpiece. The story 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. Flaubert was notoriously a perfectionist about his writing and claimed always to be searching for le mot juste ("the right word").

The novel was attacked for obscenity by public prosecutors when it was first serialized in La Revue de Paris between October 1, 1856 and December 15, 1856, resulting in a trial in January 1857 that made the story notorious. After the acquittal on February 7, 1857, it became a bestseller when it was published as a book in April 1857, and now stands virtually unchallenged not only as a seminal work of Realism, but as one of the most influential novels ever written.

Long established as one of the greatest novels ever written, the book has often been described as a "perfect" work of fiction. Henry James writes: "Madame Bovary has a perfection that not only stamps it, but that makes it stand almost alone; it holds itself with such a supreme unapproachable assurance as both excites and defies judgment."
