Meet the Author


Gustave Flaubert (1821–1880) was a great French novelist. A leader in the Realist school of literature, he is known for his exacting writing style, which greatly influenced many twentieth-century writers. He is best known for his first published work, Madame Bovary, which prompted a legal prosecution on the grounds of immorality—both Flaubert and his publisher were acquitted.
