Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"I want to write the moral history of the men of my generationand#151;or, more accurately, the history of their feelings," declared Gustave Flaubert, who envisioned "a book about love, about passion; but passion such as can exist nowadaysand#151;that is to say, inactive." First published in 1869, this novel fulfills Flaubert's conception with a realistic, ironic portrait of bourgeois lives played out against France's tumultuous revolution of 1848 and the founding of its Second Empire.

Frand#233;dand#233;ric Moreau, a law student in Paris, dreams of achieving success in art, business, journalism, and politics. His aspirations take a romantic turn upon a chance encounter with a married woman, who inspires a lifelong obsession. Frand#233;dand#233;ric befriends his idol's husband, an influential art dealer, and quickly finds himself seduced by society lifeand#151;and bedeviled by financial problems, ideological conflicts, and betrayals of trust. Blending romance, historical authenticity, and satire, Flaubert's Sentimental Education ranks among the nineteenth century's great novels.

Synopsis:

Set amid the revolution of 1848, Flaubert's masterpiece combines political and social upheaval with scrutiny of individual motives in a compelling blend of romance, history, and satire.

Synopsis:

Critics have argued whether this is the greatest French novel of the 19th century or simply of all time. Flaubert set out to record the moral history of his generation, and he labored over every word for five years. A melodious portrait of a young man's obsessive love for an older woman, it mirrored his own life and cemented his literary immortality.
