Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bored and unhappy in a lifeless marriage, Emma Bovary yearns to escape from the dull circumstances of provincial life. Flaubert's powerful, deeply moving examination of the moral degeneration of a middle-class Frenchwoman is universally regarded as one of the landmarks of 19th-century fiction.

Review:

"As for the intimate, deeper center of the book, there is no doubt that it resides in the adulterous woman; she alone possesses all the attributes of a worthy hero, albeit in the guise of a disgraced victim." Charles Baudelaire, L'artiste

Synopsis:

Powerful, deeply moving examination of the moral degeneration of a middle-class Frenchwoman.

AngeliQP, July 11, 2012 (view all comments by AngeliQP)
I am not a fan of books with tiny print, and I frankly believe there was little care on the French to English translation. I have a little knowledge of the original language, and I could tell some sentences were translated with terrible grammar. Yet the edition is quite light-weight, very compact and over all well designed.
