Description

Beautiful Emma Rouault yearns for the life of wealth, passion and romance she has encountered in popular sentimental fiction, and when her doctor, the well-meaning but awkward and unremarkable Charles Bovary, begins to pay her attention, she imagines that she may be granted her wish. However, after their marriage, Emma soon becomes frustrated with the boredom of provincial life and finds herself seeking escape and contemplating adultery. As Emma's efforts to make a reality of her fantasies become more dangerous, both she and those around her must face the shattering consequences of her actions. Causing widespread scandal when it was published in 1857, "Madame Bovary" is Gustave Flaubert's masterpiece and one of the landmark works of nineteenth-century realist fiction. This crisp new translation by Christopher Moncrieff captures the psychological realism of the original and echoes the verbal precision for which Flaubert is rightly famed.

Author Biography

Born in Rouen in northern France, Gustave Flaubert (1821-80) is regarded as one of the greatest novelists of all time. He is best known for his works Madame Bovary and Sentimental Education, and for his stylistic perfectionism and scrupulous commitment to "le mot juste".
