Overview

A subject of scandal during its publication, the novel had to overcome the censorship by Napoleon III before it became the pioneer of literary realism. Emma Bovary represents the rebellion against the corset-like, bourgeoise society of nineteenth-century France and the profound dissatisfaction with life. Emma runs from her unhappy marriage, but as well from a world that isn’t made how she prefers, and from a period that is not hers.

About the Author

Gustave Flaubert (1821–1880) was born in Rouen, France, and dropped out of law school to become a writer. His first published novel, Madame Bovary, was censured by the French government; the resulting trial, on charges of obscenity, brought Flaubert to national prominence. He was eventually acquitted, and Emma Bovary’s tragic quest for romance is now considered one of the finest novels in Western literature.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Madame Bovary is like the railroad stations erected in its epoch: graceful, even floral, but cast of iron." — John Updike
